Your help in creating a glossary with table of contents from a large outline
file worked extremely well. Thank you!
I played with the two short clips you wrote for me then I followed your
suggestion about doing the whole thing using Regular Expression within the
Replace function and that worked too. Am I content? Of course not.
This worked so well, I want to make on-going updates to this online
glossary. For example, I already have about 60 new entries and I'm sure
club members will be suggesting more additions every few days. This could
be a simple process (just add to the original outline, use the outline sort
feature, then regenerate the web page).
The task is complicated by the fact that I added hyperlinks and bookmarks so
users can easily hop among related entries. I also added 26 hyperlinks for
the letters of the alphabet, and the 26 matching bookmarks within the
glossary. I have some paragraphs of text at top and bottom of the glossary
and a few hyperlinks at the bottom that take the user out of the glossary
and into other parts of the website.
Can you suggest an efficient way to convert the web page back into an NT
outline that I can update and use to re-generate the web page while
maintaining all the embellishments I've made to the existing web page?
In this same context, I'm wondering whether I can combine the Template and
Outline features to produce the glossary as an HTML page with all
embellishments intact. When I played around with this idea, Mailbag grabbed
any .tpl file I tried to create. Under My Computer | View | Folder Options
on the File Types tab, TPL files are associated with both NOTEPRO and
Mailbag, but mailbag gets to them first! Is that because "Mailbag Template"
comes alphabetically before "TPL Files"?
I'm not asking for a solution (yet). I sure could use some direction,
