Right now that is our mission statement. ;-)

...but what you describe now is a scenario where I see forrest 1.0 as a
standard framework.

You may have a look in the new htmlArea plugin that Ross added to trunk.

IMO that is the perfect solution. :)

Have you seen pelt? It is all div based.

Can you do a patch??? I am working on the fbits plugin where I capsulate
features, so that they can be easily be reused. I guess your stuff would
be wonderful. :)

Please, add it to jira.

Glen, you gave us a perfect use case for forrest. 

It is all about seperation of concern. 

I see forrest as well as more then "just" a documentation tool but the
core functionalities will always be about documentation. every documentation there is a need for a good presentation and
that is the other core functionality of forrest. If you can help
strengthen the html presentation then be our guest. ;-)

You and everybody else is very welcome to help forrest. :)
