What I was contemplating was using notetab to achieve results similar
to a couple of programs I just bought. Quite frankly neither of the
programs do exactly what I want. They seem to be quite similar to some
of the clips that are in noetab already so I thought some kind of
wizard or merge would work as well and be customizable to my style.
I would like to take a text file and markup the title, author,
author's resource data, and parts of or all of the article. Then I
would like to dump those marked up passages into several different
places in an html document. For example the title would go into the
<title> </title> tags, as well as in meta tags and <h1> </h1>tags in
the body. Ultimately I would set up a number of text files and then
have a clip compile the new html documents with a merge type of action.
I guess it is way out of my abilities at the moment. I'll keep working
with the clips and modifying them to work the way I would like.
Thanks for the advice.
