Hi, first I would like to see that some of the ideas from the eText / WebDialect projects are going to be included into Make-Doc. IMO a single Make-Doc approach, which is used by RT and the community makes sense. Fragmentation of solutions isn't our best friend here...

What I don't like with the current approach is, that I can't visually structure my text, as indents have a semantic use. How about something like: -> This text is indent. <- -code- This is a seciton of code. -code- With this I can indent my text as I want, and tell the generator what I want.

That's why it's very handy. IMO there isn't a lot of formatting needed for most documents, so we are mostly 80% done, to have a general purpose eText solution. Andrew, maybe we can extend Make-Doc to Make-Doc/Pro and add some stuff from the eText project? Robert
