I managed, in a fit of glory, to erase the start I'd made on this
document. Silly Unix and it's unrecoverable "rm"! Anyway, this'll
probably be moved back down on my priority queue until after I finish
working on my multi-tasking object-oriented
operating system >=), but watch this space! (Note: as usual, I've lied
like a dog about when I'd get back to this -- I wrote that sentence
about two years ago. Deal. May 14 1996)
For what it's worth, you can take a look at the files I'm using to
generate multiple views of the "Composing Good HTML"
multiview.pl use the following files as source, from which to
generate ".html" files. These files are HTML, with the exception of a
few "x-perimental" elements -- X-FOOTER and X-INCLUDE. Using these
two elements, as well as the LINK element, multivew.pl
can generated either a series of documents which are linked to each
other, or else a single document including all of the following:
- A script which takes an HTML document (with the extension
".body"), and generates either a "single document" view (such as the
view of "Composing Good HTML" or a "multiple node document" view
(such as the "multiple
nodes document" view of the same document) from it. I.e., it
creates one of two possible ".html" files from the ".body" document.
- A makefile is employed so that only those parts of the document
which have been changed are "regenerated" with multiview.pl.
- The main body of the "Composing Good HTML" document.
- The "Good Practices" section of the "Composing Good HTML" document.
- The "Common Errors" section of the "Composing Good HTML" document.
- The "Things to Avoid" section of the "Composing Good HTML" document.
- The "Obsolete or Deprecated Elements" section of the "Composing
Good HTML" document.
