14a. About the Annotated FAQ
The annotated version of the ABMA/ABA faq was inspired by the PHP Manual.
Use the form that appears at the bottom of each page to contribute tips, hints, clarification, or any other additional information pertaining to the topic of that page. By default, HTML tags are not allowed, with exceptions noted below the form.
- The <br> tag creates a line break. Use it to start a new line.
- The <p> tag creates a line space (ie, a double line break; a blank line in place of the <p> tag). Use it to start a new paragraph.
- The <li> tag creates a indented, bulleted list item. Use it to highlight lists.
- Use <b> and </b> around text you want to appear in boldface
- Use <i> and </i> around text you want to appear in italics
- Use <u> and </u> around text you want to appear underlined
- Use <pre> and </pre> around text you want to appear as you enter it (monospace, retains native line breaks)
- Use <code> and </code> around text you want to appear highlighted in monospace (such as commands to type, program output, etc)
- URLs will be automatically linked if you enter them in the following formats (ie don't bother trying to format links yourself):
<http://www.example.com> for web addresses
<ftp://ftp.example.com> for ftp addresses
ftp:// parts are required, as are the opening
< and closing
In addition to the annotated version, a "plain" version (the entire faq as a single HTML document), and a "text" version (the entire faq as a single TEXT document) are available from the main menu.
Periodically, the user-contributed annotations will be reviewed and if deemed
of general importance or usefulness, incorporated into the main version of the
FAQ itself. The contributing user will be credited, of course, so please make
sure to include a proper name/nick.
To do / ideas
Section obsoleted because all but one task complete and the current system
_might_ be better. We will see what the group response is.
Complete clean up and re-org
A link to the FAQ as a single text file (with and without notes?)
Give the site some design
- User ranking of notes (democratic way of evolving the FAQ?)
- Convert it all to xml/docbook
