RFE: Please include HTML-Tidy?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:17 EDT
Glad to see that the DocBook tools are around on RH 7.0 (and 6.2, yes).
Would it be possible to include a couple of small but useful tools for
docs on Powertools in future?
I am particularly thinking of HTML Tidy, found off
http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ It's a nifty little script for
tidying HTML generated by sloppy people like me or by editors and
conversion tools like (open)jade. Its licence is BSD-style. It is very
very cool, pretty small, and incredibly useful. It even has docs :)
Something I would -love- to see in addition is the gnome-doc-tools
package which is found off http://people.redhat.com/dcm/software but
I don't know whether I can convince you it is -that- widely used, alas :)
(Unless this bug gets assigned to dcm of course..). I expect the KDE
people would argue for ksgmltools for the same reason I want
I tried to put this as an RFE for powertools, but there is no relevant
component in there, and it won't let me enter random stuff into the
component text box. Boo hiss!
Yes! add tidy :-) It's just as important as wget...
Just adding my vote for this software. It is a very small piece of
software. Not much effort needed to add it...
I vote too. It's veri nice.
We too already use it -- see:
at the bottom -- although I must admin it is not perfect,
it is guite helpful
htmltidy is really a must for any distribution!
Bumping to reference 8.0 and adding a vote 8)
Yes! Definitely adding a vote for this one.
Closing bugs on older, no longer supported releases. Apologies for
lack of response.
This looks like a good candidate for Fedora Extras:
