[REBOL] Re: make-doc-pro: how to handle tables?

From: greggirwin:starband at: 24-Sep-2001 0:39

Hi Joel, I've been long winded enough so I'll just clear up one thing from our last exchange. I said:
> ...If I were just typing a document, I would probably do something >like this: > > Table 1. > --------------------------------------- > NAME PHONE E-MAIL > --------------------------------------- > Bob Jones 000.0000 [Bob--Jones--com] > Mary Smith 111.1111 [Mary--Smith--com] >
You said:
>Now you're just making up another set of rules on the fly,...
Confusion again. I hadn't intended for that example to be taken as a synactical model for the make-doc table discussion. It was just an example of how I would format a plain text table manually. If I could teach make-doc to parse what I would just naturally enter, then so much the better. Thanks again. I think this kind of discussion is really valuable considering the importance of dialecting in REBOL. I think well designed dialects may very well transform the way we work. --Gregg
