[REBOL] Re: make-doc-pro: Version 1.0.3 beta update

From: sunandadh:aol at: 10-Jun-2002 5:11

Here's a copy of my email that doesn't seem to have arrived after three days. Apologies if you got it while me and the archive didn't. I'm backing up Robert in his recent comment that: "Adding minimal user-friendly syntax can help a lot" Sunanda <<===>> Volker:

Part of the problem with all these "pick the url from the data stream" suggestions is that it is not trivial to do. All of the following _could_ be URLs: /a-folder/a-subfolder/a-document.txt /a-folder/a-doc.htm#a-fragment /x And, for any of them in a document, they may be meant to be quoted or meant to be a clickable link. Basically the only 100% accurate rule is: "it's a clickable URL if I mark it up as such". Robert's =url may not be perfect as it requires the URL to be on a line by itself, and it needs embedded spaces to be coded as , but it does the job. Sunanda.
