PDF creation is a great idea.
I brought it up in the past, and, until we get it automated
in the toolchain, I'm glad to produce PDFs via cups-PDF
and upload them and link them to the page.
Can you post or email me (so I can post) a version of the FC6
Installation Guide done using this method?
Here is the one I built this morning using htmldoc, as per Dimitris
I'd like to compare the quality of the two. I put up the no-chunks HTML
that I used, in case you don't have a build environment handy. :)
By simply changing settings using "File > Page Setup"
Firefox, you can produce pretty clean PDFs.
Also, using explicit link references in a wiki page also
makes it easier. (I need to change a few pages I worked on
to follow this existing guideline).
This method, although off-line, is clean and simple.
I also created single-page views and encourage it to be
adopted as a standard for multi-page docs in the wiki.
This makes the PDF creation very straightforward.
Right, this is a good idea for Wiki-sourced content. However, I think
we still want to move documents from Docs/Drafts => XML, rather than
having them at Docs. I got an email this morning from someone pointing
out that not letting people edit or make comments on a document in Docs
defeats the purpose of having it in a Wiki. I agree, and want to get
our formally published documents out of the Wiki. :)
