5533Re: [NH] Code for HTML Extended Characters
- Jun 1, 2006Hi Marcelo,
Just a short note to let you know that I mentioned the line
numbering to Eric a couple weeks ago, that it was a fairly often
requested issue. I'll check the status about that, whether it
might be added this update or not. I'd be happy if there was just
a number by the actual line starts (cr/lf) and when word wrap is
on you have a bunch of lines with no numbers by them. I would
think that blank lines should be numbered as well. I know my CSE
HTML Validator used with Tools | Validate HTML and W3C's online
validation tool numbers the blanks and counts the lines only at
the true line breaks.
