I have now removed the links to sect2/sect3/sect4/sect5 tags - I think this is
the right way to go for the time being.
Having sect2/sect3/sect4/sect5 tags show up 'on their own' is horrible in my
opinion (and a 'nighmare' for navigation links). Anyway - for the people who
can, please take a look and tell me what you think.
I've also finished the navigation links completely. I will close the bug on
this when I have time. Please try this out - It should work fine :) Oh - I
would like to point out that these links do not work since we now render in
Mozilla. Somebody may wish to file a bug report on that :) The shitty thing
about this though is that you can't 'try' the links out - Oh well.
What are the other 'major' issues that need to be taken care of in
gnome-db2html2? If you think we are done with the major issues, then what are
the medium/minor issues :) ?
Heh - a good 'project of the week' somebody could is implement 'book' support
(yes I am intentionally ignoring this for the time being)
P.S. All the work cited is in my local copy and still 'pending' a cvs commit
