[NH] [NB] NoteTab Pro 4.8 Beta #25 available
- Hi Webber's,
In case if any of you are not on the beta list, I thought you
might be interested in trying out these great new features Eric
has been adding for web authors. The NoteTab betas are more
stable than ver. 4.6a; just follow the installation instructions
on the web page and you shouldn't have any problems. There were
more HTML features added in previous betas also. See Beta.txt
when beta #25 opens to see what they were. Way to go Eric!!!
From the Eric's keyboard came:
You can now download NoteTab Pro 4.8 Beta #25 from the following Web page...
Main changes since last update:
* Added menu commands to convert HTML tags to Uppercase/Lowercase/XHTML
(not for NoteTab Light). See submenu "Modify|Change HTML Tags".
* Added settings in Options dialog box to control format of HTML tags
generated by NoteTab. See Options tab labeled "HTML Files". The setting
"Create XHTML Tags" produces tags based on the W3C recommendations for
XHTML. The setting "Create Uppercase Tags" produces tags with element and
attribute names in upper case.
* Added new options to enable previewing of Web pages, such as ASP and Cold
Fusion, through a local Web server (e.g. MS Personal Web Server). See
Options tab labeled "HTML Files". The relevant fields are "Server IP" (e.g.
188.8.131.52) and "Physical Path" (e.g. c:/inetpub/wwwroot/html). When these
fields are set, any file under the Physical Path will be displayed through
the local Web server.
Clip commands and function
Tidy is a free utility that cleans HTML code and fixes errors. This new
Clip command will send you text selection or whole document to the Tidy
program. The corrected output returned by tidy is then inserted into the
document. The stderr stream is saved in file called "StdError.err" in
NoteTab's application directory unless another file is specified with the
SetStdError Name command. You can use the optional parameter "Switches" to
specify Tidy command-line arguments; example:
^!RunTidy -f errs.txt -oqu
If you don't specify any switches, NoteTab will try to determine the best
settings based on the type of file and HTML Tag settings. If you want
NoteTab to determine the best settings, but would like to have your tags
indented, just use the "i" argument; example:
You can learn more about Tidy and download the latest version by visiting
the following Web page:
The easiest setup is to install the Tidy.exe program file in the NoteTab
folder, but you may place it anywhere else if you prefer.
Returns full path and name of Tidy application.
^!InsertHtml Any text with tokens (^p/^t)
Similar to ^!InsertText command, but converts HTML tags to Uppercase,
Lowercase, or XHTML format (depending on settings in Options).
Returns the string with HTML tags converted to Uppercase, Lowercase, or
XHTML format. If the Format parameter is not specified, the result is
determined by the settings in Options. Use the Format parameter to control
the format of HTML tags. It can have one of the following values:
UPPERCASE, LOWERCASE, or XHTML.
* Changed the following functions to support the optional Format parameter.
If the Format parameter is not specified, the result is determined by the
settings in Options. Use the Format parameter to control the format of HTML
tags. It can have one of the following values: UPPERCASE, LOWERCASE, or XHTML.
I look forward to your feedback.
