Subject Including legacy html
Date Sun, 15 Dec 2002 05:38:51 GMT

Is it possible to include legacy html in a forrest-generated site?  I 
cannot see a way, so I would appreaciate some advice.  My particular 
requirement is to be able to include XE/e/macs htmlized code, or 
fragments thereof, in generated code.  The ideal would be to be able to 
insert chunks directly in the generated pages, but I realise that this 
is probably asking too much.  As a fall-back, the ability to correctly 
refer to complete html pages in, say <jump/> elements would suffice.  I 
am thinking of having such pages, or subtrees of pages, in the resources 
directory under src/documentation.

I doubt that I am the only one who will need to accommodate legacy html.

The attempts I have made include hacking the build.xml to copy html 
subdirs into the context directory, have failed. because the link 
resolution fails and I get an error page in place of the original.

Is there some Q&D way to do this?
