Hi, I like the idea but I even like the one-file-approach to simplify
distribution. Howabout a section of different languages within the source-code?
Like the style-sheet stuff?

Ok, I'm going to change that.

Well, that was the idea. Than you don't have indention at all, no problem. But I
think using CSS is the way to go these days.

Ok, goood idea.

I haven't thought about this one yet. I would like to use CSS here too. What do
others think about the external file approach? How about one external INI file,
where all these things are stored in? So only two files are needed:
make-doc-pro.r and make-doc-pro.ini

Yes, this is on my to-do-list too. The same applies to URLs etc.
Thanks for the ideas :-)) Robert
