handles tabs is with a PRE tag, and then rather inconsistently. This
can make code in help files far less readable, and means that you
have to distinguish when saving between code and prose, or use hard
line wraps, which are just plain ugly and a pain in the ass to
maintain. In the end I kind of gave up on it...
I always wonder though why there is no simple reduced html
editor (WYSIWYG) using stylesheets at the head of the
document. It would be very portable, and fairly simple.
there actually is (or will be): mozilla . i personally
think html (with a decent editor) is ok, but i think you
wouldn't want to go that route for SC code because the html
source would be unreadable. i'm not sure a stylesheet can do
I do agree that the way the columns are done in Help.help.rtf sucks
though. It would almost be worth having that file alone as HTML,
just to have a table, despite the editing hassles that would bring.
