doctools in wiki

<<doctool>> markup

To add a page written in doctools to the Wiki, you have the following options:

  • Type it in again using Wikit markup
  • Convert it to Wikit markup using the doctools to Wiki converter
  • Add the page written in doctools markup to the Wiki surrounded by <<doctool>> lines

Changes within the <<doctool>> blocks are only visible in word compares, not in line compares and edit summary.

LV Question - right now, the wiki treats the lines between the doctool markers as if it were normal wiki lines... so links to pages that are never going to exist I would assume - all the lines of doctool commands - are cluttering up the title name space.

Could there be a change to the wiki so that within doctool tags the square brackets have no special meaning?

Can something be done about the typography? The text fonts are much bigger than what I see with normal Wiki markup; it makes it look out of place and ugly.

Still, very cool--a neat new feature.

I believe that changing the font (sizes) is not a big problem. Jos copied the standard CSS for doctools generated HTML into the Wiki CSS when he added the doctools support. Changing these doctools-specific parts of the Wiki CSS should allow us to bring the fonts into line with Wikit's configuration.

This is a wiki rendering bug, where the <h2> is not properly closed. Working on it ...

Solved. Markup wasn't properly closed before inserting doctool output.

Cool and this is a useful feature.
