[REBOL] Re: facts we will have to face ...

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 26-Oct-2001 14:36

Hi Andrew, << Like my eText software? That lets one write plain text, yet have nicely formatted HTML documents, which are automatically linked together. >> Right! But we have so much further to go. We have some really *great* stuff that Carl, You, Robert, Gabriele, and others have written which will undoubtedly be the springboards for many derivative efforts. As an example, EasyVID defines the content and then defines the rules about how to process that content. You could easily create a new set of rules to emit different formats. Maybe one format writes out footnotes, where another would create a pop-up definition, and yet another creates a hyperlink. A section could be an HTML page, a slide in a slide-show, a paragraph, or a layout. Pretty obvious stuff, this. The challenge lies in defining the lingua franca, one or more, which are transparent and flexible, that allow us to produce and transform content effectively. --Gregg
