2003-03-27  Patrice Dumas <>

	*, texi2html.init: rewrite of the parsing of texi
	and of the handling of sectionning.
	pass0 is now pass_texi. It still only generates texinfo.
	pass_texi now also collects informations from sectionning commands
	index entries, printindex commands.
	pass1 through pass4 are now in just one pass, pass_text.
	between pass_texi and pass_text, the information is used to figure
	out the document and indices structure.
	pass_text reparses the texinfo generated by pass_texi and
	produces html. All the formatting is done in isolated subroutines
	such that it is easy to change the formatting witout bothering
	with the parsing.
	pass_text uses scan_line to process a line.
	A stack is used which holds opened macros and formats. Thus the 
	html is always closed and should be valid.
	The document structure seems right with this approach, unnumbered 
	sections are at the right level and indices don't break the document
	structure anymore.
	* Tests/*: more tests for the @macros. Other minor modifications.
	sync with new code.

2003-03-06  Patrice Dumas <>

	* added  the licence
	*, texi2html.init, check function
	put in T2H_EXPAND is now an array such that

	* added a new pass before the other ones, pass0 and
	a function scan_line0 used in that pass. During that pass the
	ifhtml, ifnot*, the comments and multiple empty lines, the macros, 
	values and includes are handled. No html is generated. the
	different things that are expanded can now be within a line and 
	not necessarily at the begining of the line.
	The handling of values and macros is not changed.
	scan_line handles more constructs (newlines (still bugged), 
	verbatim, html and tex, deffn (incomplete)).
	new function close_stack which might be used to close the things 
	forgotten by users or between paragraphs.
	new function substitute_text which uses scan_line to render
	arbitrary text.
	little improvements in menu comments handling.
	accent_map/do_accent should handle all the accents.

	* add comment about the formats in texinfo 4.5
	setlocale is used in case of tests to avoid change in ordering of 
	indices while testing against a reference file
	footnotes refs and image handled by parse_line, which calls a 
        sub routine (do_footnote, do_ref or do_image).
        for footnotes, _$doc_num instead of $docu_doc
	appended tp keep track of the file of the footnote, such that it 
	is easier to match. 
	instead of <!--::${section}::--> added before printindex, _$sec_num 
	is appended to printindex, to keep track of the
	section number.
        images extention is taken from the @image tag if available
        everything which was splitted accross pass2, pass3 and pass4 is
        now done in pass2.
        in pass3 only very little cleaning is done, pass4 is removed.

	the handling of multi lines macro is done in a function, scan_line

2000-09-11  Eric Sunshine  <>

	* Fixed severe macro expansion bug.  Macro argument
	  parsing code did not handle nested braces ('{' and '}') at
	  all, thus valid macro invocations such as
	  "@mymacro{Hello @emph{there} @strong{world}.}" would fail.
	  Prior to this fix, @mymacro would be handed the argument
	  "Hello @emph{there", which is clearly incorrect.  Now @mymacro
	  correctly receives "Hello @emph{there} @strong{world}." as its
	  argument.  This fix also deals properly with the protected brace
	  sequences \{, \}, @{, and @}.

	* Fixed severe macro expansion bug.  Macro argument
	  parsing code did not handle arguments split over multiple lines,
	  such as "@mymacro{Hello \n world.}".  Now it correctly handles
	  macro invocations split across any number of lines, and properly
	  flags an error at the correct location if the user forgets the
	  closing brace '}'.

	* Fixed formatting errors in expansions of @SPACE,
	  @TAB, and @NL (where SPACE, TAB, and NL represent the actual
	  space, tab, and newline characters).  The Texinfo manual
	  explicitly states that each of these sequences should expand to a
	  "printable" space in the [rendered] output.  The example given in
	  the manual shows that "Spacey@ @ @ @ example" should expand to
	  "Spacey    example".  However, texi2html was only emitting the
	  insignificant whitespace ' ' and '\n' into the HTML output which
	  did not properly preserve the hard spaces in "Spacey    example".
	  Now each of these directives expands to '&nbsp;' instead.

	* Made aesthetic improvement to the output of @file{},
	  @option{}, and @samp{}.  The argument string is now quoted with
	  ` and ' _after_ the style has been applied.  For instance,
	  @samp{perl} now expands to "`<samp>perl</samp>'", whereas it used
	  to expand to "<samp>`perl'</samp>".  In my tests, this change
	  results in more aesthetically pleasing rendered output on various

	$HOME/.texi2htmlrc if it exists, after processing texi2html.init
	but before anything on the command-line.
	Allow -split_chapter, -split_node, -monolithic options, which is
	what previous versions of texi2html used.
	Support `@command{...}'.
	Add --help, --version options.
	-sidx isn't used, so comment out.

	* New files.

	* Change version number from 1.60Beta to 1.59.2.

	* debian/*: New files.

	* Extract the man page into a separate file.  At the
	moment, the man page is even installed separately (with having `.so @MANPAGE_PATH@' in place of the
	manpage).  Conceivably we could add a configure option to
	construct everything as one file like we used to; just replace
	that text with `@EMBEDDED_MANPAGE@', which would be replaced with
	either the existing `.so @MANPAGE_PATH@' or with texi2html.1
	contents the way texi2html.init is done.
