Subject AW: manual with css

first look is good, some differences, but I have to look deeper into that.
(comparing echo-css with subant)

yep. RGB 000000=black FFFFFF=white

no. Java-Sources --XDoclet--> HTML
First shot of autogenerating the manual from the sources (somewhere in the
proposal section)

Lot of work - but with a future?
I dont want to keep you doing that (it seems that you like doing that :) but
we should
port that to a more solid base. Which means: supported by the Ant team.
ATM the manual is written in HTML. Our vision is writing the manual inside
the java sources
and generate the "readable" form via XDoclet. One of the ideas was
  *.java --XDoclet--> *.xml --Forrest--> *.html, *.pdf
and let Forrest do creating a complete Ant manual as one pdf file using its
aggregate facility.
