RE: [REBOL] Please read! Help needed.
wow! grat work!
i like "font Times-Roman 4.23 justify with left margin 0"
Here comes a dialect to show what dialects are for :)
resulting page looks pretty cool.
now something to split page automatic (or i missed it?),
short thinking i suggest:
how to format and calculate all boxes and give them back to
the user in a block with sizes, positions and content,
then let user script how to pagebreak?
there could be some naming for boxes so user can check what to
take to the next page?
together with a pre-defined breaker, of course.
also some naming for styles to specify macros,
that could quick match to make-doc-labels?
font-changing is somewhat large.
then for encoding, i had a weird idea:
encoding ä "ä" ü "ü"
in the text.
instead of giving an encoding-name and juggling with the editor
to use it, we could parse this easy and decide which codes are
used for special chars.
+ it could be done by hand, mark whatever is in the ä
and replace it everywhere with your local char.
do you think this could be usable?
