Subject Including HTML
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 08:42:01 GMT

I am trying to include several auto generated HTML files with embedded 
CSS styles into Forrest. I have exhausted my try-repeat cycle. Mind that 
changing this HTML is not an option.

First I tried to

    <map:match pattern="news/**.html">
     <map:select type="exists">
      <map:when test="{project:content}{1}.html">
        <map:read src="{project:content}{1}.html" 

so that Forrest would leave anything in the news directory with html 
extension as is. My news directory is located at


It does not work, as HTML is rendered differently - corrupted. Next I 
tried to add those external HTML file's embedded CSS to skinconf.xml 
like this:

    .textElement { font-family: Courier New; font-size: 9pt; color:
    #800000; }
    .textAttr { font-family: Courier New; font-size: 9pt; color: #FF0000; }
    [more elements follow]

Nothing happened. Next I tried to load the document with class="fork" 
and class="jump". Again nothing. I did stop the server in between the tries.

The best would be if this external HTML could be displayed in the main 
area with its own added styles. How can I do this, if at all possible?
