Very nice. But how do I, for example, do this?:
>> Fred: Make Object! [ File: %Fred.html Text: "Meet Fred Flintstone" ] >> ML Compose/Deep [ a/href Fred/File Fred/Text ]
Which gave me the following results: == {<a href="Fred.html" /> Meet Fred Flintstone} Certainly not the results I was after. I'm playing around with automating HTML generation, such that, if Fred gets a new web page, I update Fred/File to %Flintstone.html and regenerate the page. Please bear in mind, I'm still a relative newbie, there are still many things I have to get figured out about it. So if I'm missing something, apologies in advance... BTW, playing with it further, gave me these results:
>> FredFile: %Fred.html
== %Fred.html
>> FredText: "Meet Fred Flintstone"
== "Meet Fred Flintstone"
>> ML Compose/Deep [ a/href FredFile FredText ]
== {<a href="FredFile" /> <FredText /> } -- Sincerely, | Ed Dana | Reserve your right to think, for even to think Software Developer | wrongly is better than not to think at all. 1Ghz Athlon Amiga | -- Hypatia of Alexandria.
