Subject RE: Website documention problem with page widths
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2002 00:14:31 GMT
I would like to offer the services of kangax to handle documentation
publishing, I am sure we can solve many of the problems you are currently
experiencing.

Kangax is a simple publishing tool which leverages cocoon technology.

Please contact Dean McGowan to discuss, this would be a free service to the
community, however editors and contributors are still necessary.

If you are using a win 32 operating system with ie6.0 installed please
download and trial Kangax from

http://www.kangax.com/client/kangax/downloads/setup.exe


Regards,

Dean McGowan

This is a known problem with source snippets that are made up of CDATA
sections running longer than the designed screen width. We're addressing
this in Forrest. Right now, the only solution is to manually break these
snippets in the source XML file for "pretty printing" in docs. I always
fix this when I encounter such problems in the existing files I edit,
and I screen these problems out of all new submissions, but I simply
haven't had time to fix *all* problematic files, yet. Volunteers?

Sorry you had to go to this trouble.

Also a Forrest goal.

Thanks for your input.
