Enhancements to PubTal

I’m working on some enhancements to PubTal at the moment, and so far it has been surprisingly easy. The next version will require updates to existing configuration files because I have consolidated a number of the configuration directives.

New features I’ve been able to implement include:

  • XHTML support.
  • Ability to set the template/output-file character set encoding.
  • Ability to specify the template/output content type (e.g. HTML, XHTML)
  • You can now specify a DOCTYPE for XML templates.

The next challenge will be adding the ability to specify an extra plugin directory, and an option to suppress output of the XML declaration for XHTML files (working around a CSS bug in IE 6).

Comments are closed.
