OK - *before* I read all 46 (!) messages in my Doc-SIG intray, I'll
announce the new version of the "fat" specification:
The "old" version is at fat1.html, and there's a version with the
differences highlighted in red (for those who don't want to read the
whole thing again) at
- all special characters are now reserved, except in
- I've reserved `@` as well, while I'm at it, as
suggested the other day, for future expansion
- backticks are now used for literal strings
- mention is made of the "delimit list item bullets"
idea - whilst I don't like it myself, I suggest `~`
be used as the delimitor if we have to do it
Who knows what will need to change *after* I read all the messages.
(By the way - docutils *almost* implements all of this, and an alpha
release to play with is *still* on the cards RSN - depending on flu,
Note for Guido - yes, the DOM tree stuff is irrelevent to the
specification as such, but since I need it around for me, and don't want
to manage more than one document (heh, I'm literally losing sleep to
keep just one up-to-date!), people will have to ignore it for now.
Eventually I would see more than one document, aimed at different
audiences, of course.
Back to the list (gods, I've got *work* to do as well)
