I've never really understood the historical reason for 'resources' being
different from 'content'.

Wouldn't it have the same effect to put these things in content/scripts?

IMHO, anything that gets served to the user is 'content', and anything
that helps produce content (XSLT, DTDs, catalog files) are 'resources'.

But this is not the original plan, or we wouldn't have resources/images/

So a question for everyone: are there any reasons for resources/images/,
or can we deprecate it in favour of content/images/?

:/  Well we could turn on JTidy when parsing *.ehtml.  Simply a matter of

<map:generate src="content/xdocs/{../1}.ehtml"/>


<map:generate type="html" src="content/xdocs/{../1}.ehtml"/>

However I found that JTidy doesn't like/expect input to contain the <?xml
version="1.0"?> XML declaration, so it would break backwards-compat.
JTidy is generally yucky - wish someone would add support for NekoHTML.
