Subject Re: [CONF] Apache Geronimo Documentation: Tips for writing and formatting documentation (page edited)
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2007 22:43:44 GMT
As I said before, my idea for that doc was not to show all the options Confluence offer but
how to apply some of those formats specifically on the Geronimo documentation.

Please, feel free to update the document with the format you think would be easier to understand.
That was just my vision for explaining these formats consistently applied to a specific case.

Others pls chime in with your opinions too, the more comments the better. Ultimately, the
goal is to provide a clear message of how to format an article in a consistent way with the
rest of the documentation.
