Thanks, this is helpful.
How does KDE docbook handle tables? Is it possible to give some hint of what the column width should be? Could we make, say, 4 colums and then merge 3 of the (an ugly kludge, off course, but if it works...). Or should we avoid tables all together?
Q: Is it possible to give some hint of what the column width should be? A: No, it will be chosen automatically to fit the width. Images will not be scaled down (will be shown as is (100%)).
Q: Could we make, say, 4 colums and then merge 3 of the (an ugly kludge, off course, but if it works...)? A: You could, but the script in its current form does not parse this. Just for the reference the code in docbook for
|Jumping around in code|
|Ctrl+Alt+O||Quick open file: enter part of a filename and select among all the files in the current session's projects' directory trees that match the string; the file will then be opened|
<informaltable> <tgroup cols="2"> <colspec colname="c1"/> <colspec colname="c2"/> <thead> <row> <entry namest="c1" nameend="c2">Jumping around in code</entry> </row> </thead> <tbody> <row> <entry><keycombo>&Ctrl;&Alt;<keycap>O</keycap></keycombo></entry> <entry>Quick open file: enter part of a filename and select among all the files in the current session's projects' directory trees that match the string; the file will then be opened</entry> </row> </tbody> </tgroup> </informaltable>
The problem is in smart parsing for the number of columns to be merged. I have to do it manually for KDevelop manual conversion.
Q: Or should we avoid tables all together? A: No. Generic tables are parsed well. Screenshot
The table width doesn't seem to be as big an issue as I thought. At least when the uploaded images have a sensible size, tables seem to adjust to them nicely.
I tried one more time to make a table to solve the problem, but in a test page User:Claus_chr/Test. Would this work? (apart from the <br /> problem - I havent found out what to do about that yet.)
Update: As a matter of fact I don't need the br tags at all - I just misread the wikimedia docs.
PS. Anne and I was wondering about your comment about images in captions. As far as we know there never was an image in any caption. What are we missing here?
Q: Would this work? A: No. See 1. Can you keep the pipe ("| ") in one unit with the rest of the cell? If you do, then modified script can give something like this.
P.S. I should concentrate on my report now. Can we discuss the rest later? Thanks for your answer.
