Subject [issues] Updated: (FOR-125) Text Ouput
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
The following issue has been updated:

    Updater: Ross Gardler (
       Date: Sun, 1 Aug 2004 3:08 AM
This patch is what I have working minus some code I took from elsewhere that simply gave me
a string consisting of a character repeated x times. I used it to manage layout, draw underlines
on titles etc.

In this patch I've stripped this code (as who actually owns it is unclear at this time) and
inserted fixme's in all the places I used it. The resulting stylesheet is useable, but needs
something to highlight headings etc.

There are still some things need ironing out, the ones I am aware of are listed below, some
of these are easy to fix (numbered lists) others less so (table layout):

- numbered lists aren't numbered
- lists within lists don't work
- table layout is not even attempted
- there is no neat wrapping of long lines of text
- headings are no longer emphasised (need the script mentioned above)

Be warned I have not had the time to test this in a wide range of documents, it functions
for the few pages I need tet output on. Please have a go at improving things.
