[NH] CSS, XHTML, XML, etc.
- I really like all of the new functionality that Eric has put in version
4.8, with the ability to change the case of HTML tags for upper, lower,
I also appreciate the various freeware and shareware programs that he has
given NoteTab a way to share information (CSE Validator, Tidy - Of
course!, and TopStyle).
I personally do not like the direction of the HTML 4 and XHTML specs for
lowercase tags. I prefer upper case for easier readability when quickly
scanning a document. I am adjusting, as I am sure most of us will (right
I do like that on some larger, more complicated HTML pages, that style
sheets have reduced the size by about 1/3. That was enough to make some
sites that no longer fit on a floppy (without zipping) fit again.
I have not developed any major clips yet, just some short ones to work on
one document at a time as I tweak my style sheet documents and a few
pages for testing. I was surprised at how many pieces of code, templates,
and data files I have put together that had to be changed so that
generating a brand new page would not need to be edited for coding
corrections. I am planning on developing some clips to speed that up, but
have found a few problems.
I have the copyright symbol in most pages, and it is the c in a circle,
not "©". When I copied and pasted the copyright symbol into a clip,
it is not finding the symbol. I want an easy way to replace all the
symbols in 100 plus documents (small by some standards, but still too
much for manual editing). I can look for the other information around it,
and do a replace of the information around it, but that makes for more
effort? Any one else have that problem?
A related issue is using "&" as an "&", and the HTML 4 specs say it
should be "&" . I have not felt ambitious enough to write a clip that
will find "&" and make sure it is not already part of control code, it
could be "©", etc. Any one else come up with such a clip?
I also remember a post, maybe on the clips list, that someone mentioned
they had a clip for the CSE Validator Lite. If so, would you care to
share the clip?
Well, that about wraps up my current NoteTabbing experiences/needs.

have a clip for ©. I just stuck it on my clipboard. I will send it just in
case you can use it. That way you treat the © as a character just like any
other letter. I get it from ALT+0169.
I am sure you are way beyond where I am so you have probably all ready
ruled this out. But just in case............
