Subject HTML in Greenstone
Hi all,

I am just embarking on editing my macro(.dm) files to customise them for
our library; I was wondering - do you - like me - edit your .dm files by
hand taking the html snippets from a page generated in dreamweaver?

I am finding this a frustrating process; has anyone found a quicker/easier
way to do it?

I have also tried to replace the graphic navbar with one using CSS; I was
truing to make it wrap for smaller screens(or just in a smaller window);
unfortunately some of the HTML is hardcoded and can't be changed from the
macro files; has anyone been able to do this successfully? or; will the
hardcoded HTML being moved into the macros for the next version of

And finally, will the cd building process cope with long filenames?, our
users are unlikely to be using win3.1 So I was wondering if GS would cope
if I tried it with a CD building session?
