Hi ZIM List!

I am new here. Some days ago i initialy contacted Jaap to clear some 
details. From now on i will use the bug reports and the mailing-list. 

To share my first steps with ZIM below my first post.

Okay. I researched and found two possible reasons:
 - Different char sets (ASCII, ISO-8859-15, UTF-8), i converted them to 
   to UTF-8 and the situation gets better. But in addition, number two:
 - One file was `buzzword_overflow.info'. I attached that file so you 
   can examine it personaly. There are binary chars in it. ZIM stops 
   displaying the content of all files after this file was selected 
   for editing.

By the way, the file `buzzword_overflow.info' is a result of a very long 
business meeting which I participated some years ago. After a long time 
i could not listen anymore - and voila, the reason was a buzzword 
overflow that happens to my brain. Later I made a printable version 
with a blue blackground which can be held up during never ending 
meetings with business managers. ;-)

What i am meaning was the possibility to refer to code (program text, 
css stylesheets, automaticaly written logfiles) that displays _actual 
recent data with changes_ without having to reload it manualy into the 
zim text file. And there is a) no need to edit them and b) maybe this 
would be a serios problem. So, all i prefer is that it will be 
displayed, parsed, converted, exported and appears in a printings.


Besides that, i remember REMSTATS of Thomas Erskine. He made a Perldoc 
documentation for his software which has the pathes of your special 
compile root folder in its documentation. I.e. you ever have _your_ 
environment documented.

You know: Good documentation is:
 a) documentation which writes itself
 b) documentation which updates itself
 c) documentation which representes it in different targets, 
    but is only once in the system!

Okay, i did not open a bug report. But as above the solution was found. 
Nevertheless, feedback can come from the mailing-list. Maybe it was 
discussed earlier.
