Subject RE: Source code
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2018 21:29:52 GMT
Trying to use wiki – keeps referring to something else I must read first which refers me
to something else I must read first. That includes what I thought ere the modules. Luckily,
I can read code. If you send me a list of modules and where they are located. I will build
my own tools to do the analysis and figure out what to change.

If you want to try what I have built so far,
is the transaction that I change .html code generated by Open office (save as html) to a .htm
file. If you find any bugs. Let me know. Last thing I worked on was showing header for document.
One of the bugs, from my point of view is that I have no indication where the page breaks
occur (so I know where more headers and footers go).

Awesome. I hope you bring some endurance.
I help you the best to my abilities.

We will find a way to integrate your code, no worries.
I can imagine to give you commiter rights or I pull your code over github and push it in your
name to trunk.
We will find a way together, okay?
Let's focus on code production first. When there is something to commit we discuss the way.

I suggest to leave existing filters intact and do an html5 one.

>My code has found some errors in current generated code
What do you mean? Can you explain one case?
The current html4 code does not produce pure html4. It is something the browser can work with.
There have been reports in the past about it.
Or do you talk about bad code?

Wiki stuff
To me the wiki is a haystack.
I think here you find some hints:

I think there is more. I hope I will find time for some research.
