Sorry, but LyXHTML is too ugly for my taste.
How so? Do you mean the visual output or the file structure, or....?
I'm not experienced enough at HTML to have an opinion
on file structure.
When I set the document default output to HTML (filtered
through elyxer) the viewed document is more visually
appealing than when set to LyXHTML. Perhaps ugly is too
strong a word here, but I think most people would agree
it looks dated.
I didn't mean to give offense and please don't take my
comment that way.
Indeed, the question still stands: LyX is always in progress, and always
subject to improvement.
Regarding the visual appearance, then, I should say that LyX's own HTML
output and elyxer *both* pretty exclusively use CSS to style the
document. So one can in fact change the appearance quite easily, either
by editing the CSS manually, once the file's been exported, or else by
using the usual customization methods within LyX: layout files, modules,
local layout, and so forth. So it's worth distinguishing these two issues.
If there are specific things you think could be improved, please do let
us know. It's not hard.
