Feedback copied from Tasks.Item1174

Here are few things from my wish list:
  • GENPDF{"Web.Topic.Section"} Create a link for the named section of a topic. Link will appear as http://...
  • On the old 'dev' topic someone requested that links show in blue, otherwise they're impossible to see against the rest of the black text. I hard-coded that on my site (push @htmldocArgs, "--linkcolor", "#0000FF"; # Otherwise they are black). Some may not want that, so the ideal solution would be to make it configurable.
  • Before going crazy with a bunch of macro tags, maybe it would be better to include something like my form to configure the options without having to mess with the URL or a bunch of macro tags? Perhaps it would be better implemented as a pop-up (analagous to the print options dialog in Windows) so as not to force a navigation away from the source document.
  • Provide an option to create stand-Alone Documents (i.e., not link back to Wiki). Could do this with custom skin? Or by modifying "sub _fixHtml()" in
    • Convert all internal links to be relative links (e.g., <a href="#name">). These are used in the ToC, but can be in the body too.
    • Remove remaining links to Wiki host, while leaving external links. E.g., this removes table header sort links (which are non-functioning in a PDF anyway, and hard to see against a dark column header).
