Subject Re: HSSFSerializer - Extensions?
Date Tue, 31 Dec 2002 23:12:23 GMT
I am fairly ignorant on xml, but the other day I wanted to be able to
color code a spreadsheet. My hope was to open up the gnumeric doc saved
as xml, look at the fields I color coded and do the rest of the changes
with %s/ in vi.Is their was for an xml doc generated by gnumeric to have
tags for colors?

Regards and Happy New Year to all.
