#8431 closed patch (wontfix)

Readme.txt in HTML format

Reported by: SF/dflock Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Documentation
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


I have converted the ScummVM readme.txt for version 0.7.1 from text to HTML.

The new version is XHTML 1.1, fully standards compliant and validates for both HTML and CSS compliance.

There are 2 files, which need to be put in the same directory:

ScummVM Readme 0.7.1.html ScummVM Readme.css

I have attatched the files to this patch submission, but they are also available here, just in case:

I hope you like.

Thanks, but this is relatively useless for us, I am afraid. We already have a LaTeX version of the README which can be used to produce PDF and HTML, but since people tend to only update the README itself and not the LaTeX format, it keeps getting out of sync -- and I am afraid, a HTML version will suffer the same fate.

Anyway, the README should ideally just be that -- a short must-read intro with the bare facts. Everything beyond that should be in a "Manual" -- our README is in fact kind of a bastard-manual... We have begun some work on a new manual, although that is stalled. Your time would probably be better spent helping on that...

I am very sorry, since I understand you put work and effort into this, but I have to reject it :-/
