 [18:25] _Gav_: and dared to use red and green :)
 [18:26] _Gav_: been to the City, did I miss much
 [18:27] _Gav_: been wanting to add an Atom feed to it, but the has been
broken for a few days now.
+[18:31] pbo1: the thing I'm a bit hazy about with rss is how to generate the feeds. there
seems  to be tons of literature on aggregating and not much on actually producing.
+[18:33] _Gav_: ok, do you mean creating the xml for the feeds, or do you mean displaying
them on your site
+[18:33] _Gav_:​ss_display.php
+[18:33] _Gav_:​ss_deliver.php
+[18:33] _Gav_: I have not put them on the navigation yet
+[18:34] _Gav_: Those are RSS 2.0, I am writing an Atom 1.0 one at the moment
+[18:35] pbo1:​ss_deliver.php - Yep, I'm across that,
you can use a little firefox extension too. I'm more talking about automating the process.

+[18:36] pbo1: BTW,​n/css/css21.shtml could do with
a cleanup. Contact me off channel.
+[18:36] _Gav_: Yes, I wrote that some time a go, before I knew anything, that code is a bit
dated I think now
+[18:37] _Gav_:  I need to rewrite the whole thing.
+[18:38] pbo1: I think the most important thing I've learnt about CSS is to use selectors.
You can write 
+[18:38] pbo1: 'classless' html, just name the containers and hit them.
+[18:39] pbo1: which is one reason I like the dispatcher - the contracts are containers. I
just name them and dont' worry about all the legacy stuff in the output.
+[18:41] _Gav_: Thats something I should work towards I think
+[18:41] pbo1: The only place it gets dicey is with the main nav, there's so much going on
in there. I'd like to strip all the presentation code out of the stylesheet which does the
collapses so you don't have to worry about fighting it.
+[18:42] _Gav_: Just notcied W3C has an Atom/RSS Feed Validator
+[18:42] pbo1: body{ font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif; font-size: medium;
text-align:left; text-decoration:none; color: cc33cc; font-style: italic; background-color:
ffffcc; }  h1{ font-family:verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large; font-weight:
bold; font-style: normal; background-color:transparent; color: ff0000; text-align:center;
}  h2{ font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; background-color:transpar
+[18:42] pbo1: oops
+[18:44] pbo1: What are you using for content creation at the moment?
+[18:45] _Gav_: What programs? Dreamweaver, TopStylePro
+[18:45] _Gav_: Outside of Forrest
+[18:47] pbo1: I mean for actually writing text which you want to include in forrest sites.
+[18:48] _Gav_: oh ok, Vim
+[18:53] _Gav_: I write the xml in Vim because it seems to be more Forrest friendly - more
compatable for SVN
+[18:53] _Gav_: so comitters have less work to do.
+[18:53] _Gav_: Otherwise Dreamweaver copes with xml just fine too
+[18:59] pbo1: No, I mean for writing content, not code
+[19:01] pbo1: I've been using a plugin for jedit called Xilize a lot. the next version will
allow html rendered text to output to a separate directory. Sorry gotta go...
+[19:01] _Gav_: ok
