Good stuff but I would like a little more info within the script itself.

Once a person takes that script away to use it, it looses it explanation of why you had it in the first place.

Re: More Documentation on the examples
Hi Princess,

Very good point!

Manning doesn’t like comments in the body of the code script included in their books. But I’ll try to include some narrative within the code scripts that will be downloadable separately.

Thanks
Ian

Re: More Documentation on the examples
So I've read through the pdf a couple times, and while it's handy on getting started, where does more complete documentation live that I can read/print about the different styles that are supported by TLF markup? There's only a handfull of examples here, and there's no documetion with all the markup attributes that I can find. It's slightly frustrating since I want to:

Use a DIV Layer, with paragraph formats ( I am trying to make something look like a blog and want to render convert dhtml to TextFlow)
add IMG tags, i tried to use ones from my XHTML skills, no luck, images don't display
Add a linefeed after all paragraphs,
paddingTop doesn't seem to be applied to paragraphs, is there another way to do this
how to use the link tag and style
