>          Issue Type: New Feature

>            Priority: Minor
> It would be nice to be able to generate a site that can be embedded into an Eclipse help
> The criteria would be as such:
> 1. Generate more compact html. i.e. with less header info. The Eclipse help center is
typically sized small on a user's screen and the less cruft the better. The workaround decribed
in #2 below can get around this with the current way things are generated, but its kludgey.
> 2. Generate html that does not contain the menus as Eclipse uses an xml files called
a toc file to generate its own menus. A current workaround is to generate the site using a
modified the forrest-css skin. The css is modified to hide the menus and compress the header
portion of the page. Although you have to specify a 1px image in skinconf.xml for the mandatory
project logo in order for this to work.
> 3. Generate an Eclipse toc file that is basically a transformation of the site.xml.
> Note - I have been using forrest fo exactly 1 day so buyer beware.
> Reference material:
> A link to a page decribing the format of the Eclipse toc file:
> P.S. I left the priority for this issue at it default setting for no particular reason.
