I'm going to play devil's advocate in just this one message just to
air a couple of concerns. Regardless, I'm glad you are working on
1. We don't want to make the meaning of the table dependant on color
(especially in HTML). Two reasons:
o Some people have difficulty visually distinguishing colors.
o I don't want to lose the ability to have meaningful,
decent-looking dead-tree versions of documents, which are
usually rendered in PostScript or PDF.
2. As you know, we try to keep the hardware notes as MI as possible,
so I want to make sure that your changes still fit into this
framework. (Maybe the premise that we can have mostly-MI
release documentation is a mistake, but that's another issue.)
Do you have the SGML sources for your changes available somewhere?
I'd like to think about folding some of these back into the sources.
How closely are you tracking the HEAD sources?
PS. I marked you as the owner of the "ia64 hardware notes" task on
the 5.1 release TODO list, so don't be surprised if you see your name
