Subject Re: Tracking Codes and Java Script
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2010 17:41:02 GMT
So I will be giving this a try tonight or over the weekend...
However, I wanted to ask a couple of more questions:
(just to start people thinking...)

1.  I would ultimately like to have a solution that requires only
modifications to my website data, not changes to the Forrest XSL Files.
     Therefore, can we design/architect a change that can be contributed
back to Forrest.
2.  Most users would want tracking, but they may not want the "Google"
proprietary tracking,
     Therefore, is it possible to design it to accept a "CDATA" as aposed to
a "PCDATA" thus allowing Arbitrary code in the website data.
3.  Is it possible to update the DTD Docs with optional fields.  I Kinda
like the validation.

Bryce
