Re: [sc-dev] p tags in docs

Still, there's a major, higher issue here.
We want to maintain the domination of macosx in terms of ease of use.
That's ok (I'm on mac).
But cocoa compatible html generation (Helper mimics it) is really a bad trick IMHO.

if you have managed to find a stable automatic way to translate from the cocoa webkit's html format to a more human readable format that displays the same, it would be good if this script could be integrated SC on os x in a way that it works more or less in the background. It would be difficult to keep up with modifications done and resaved from os x (which will save it again in cocoa style, as far as I know).

The coloring isn't a problem.  afaik you can put as much bells'n
whistles you want (at least spans with colors etc) inside pre blocks as
well.  Automatic translation would take some thinking though.

Ive run through all the html-files ive found inside Html with a sed
script, and looked at a few of them from some SC_<Help:w3m>Help:w3m buffer, they
look much better now.  Ill see if i can upload an archive to a webpage.
Check <http://www.notam02.no/~andersvi/SC-Help-files.tar.bz2>http://www.notam02.no/~andersvi/SC-Help-files.tar.bz2 in a while.

Im not sure how various developers generate the html which gets
included, but i guess a translation-script could be handy for others as
well.  This script only substitutes the p-tags for now.

Using <pre>'s (difficult?)  and changing the Helper class (easy) comes
later.  See comments to begin with for applying to a directory-tree (ie


I guess the files could be operated on 'in place', but im not too sure
about shell-programming in general, and especially escaping white-spaces
in file-names...
