The compliance transformation stylesheets were broken, we needed a mechanism to add information. The .ihtml document essentially gets passed through Forrest so you can easily edit the file with an HTML editor (WYSIWYG if you prefer!). > > Any chance that it could work with Forrest 0.8?

I have FOP built off of 0.8, but I have issues with the links to the generated files like release notes, changes, etc. (any ideas about those links?). In addition I need to redo my refactoring of the web site. That shouldn't take long, as I think I've got a pretty clear direction. As for Forrest:Views, I've spent some time trying to get forrest:views to work, but it was largely unsuccessful. I don't believe it was ever finished, and I believe they're moving on to using a new system for managing 'themes' in the upcoming Forrest 0.90 release http://forrest.apache.org/pluginDocs/plugins_0_80/org.apache.forrest.plugin.internal.dispatcher/index.html. In any event, I think I'll focus on making the site more usable. I'll use the ideas in the Refactoring website (was Re: Next release - when?) thread as a guide.  (search for 'forrest.validate.xdocs.excludes') for the issues... http://people.apache.org/~clay/fop_refactored/  http://www.nabble.com/Next-release---when--td14738961.html Regards, The Web Maestro -- <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> - <http://homepage.mac.com/webmaestro/> My religion is simple.
