Hi Kay,

I was able to get HTML wrapped using the Apache CMS last night. I'm not ready to commit anything
yet. I'll summarize where I am and possible next steps.

In order to make progress the key was investigating the source for the {% %} template tagging.
This is found here:


I changed to include an html_page procedure

In I added a pattern for html wrapping.

our @patterns = (
        [qr!\.mdtext$!, single_narrative => { template => "single_narrative.html" }],
        [qr!\.html$!, html_page => { template => "html_page.html" }],
) ;

The template html_page.html looks a lot like single_narrative.html but adds an override to
the content block.

{% extends "skeleton.html" %}
{% block content %}{% autoescape off %}{{ content }}{% endautoescape %}{% endblock %}

We keep a single skeleton which is good.

Next steps are

- blocks for javascript and css insertion.
- controlling sidenav. The current html_page.html is not very good for the pages that Carl
modified in the download directory.
- header and footer framework
- online cms editing of html
- scripting of Kenai html into CMS compatible - stripping of headers and extraction of javascript
and css.

this existing "template" instead of the more involved "top tab" business currently with the
