Hi Helder,

Just a couple quick responses -- though there is clearly more to talk about in what you've written.

Sounds good. I'm going to look into that.

I want to put some of the topics for discussion about this maybe in the the SVG IG wiki.
For example the list of sections from http://srufaculty.sru.edu/david.dailey/cs427/StateOfArt-Dailey.html#Afterword might be good in a wiki as a sort of sign-up sheet for volunteers.

It'd give a place to organize the thoughts contained in what are now a dozen or more e-mails in this forum -- searchable yes, but not all that organized.

Actually, what I've done for now is to use a special class called "example" that appears in green at the bottom of tables that contain source code listings and bitmapped illustrations.

That way if I don't happen to have a live example handy, then it just isn't linked from.

See for example toward the bottom of http://srufaculty.sru.edu/david.dailey/cs427/StateOfArt-Dailey.html#getCTM

Yes that is what is done right now. I'd guess a hundred or two hundred like that.

Gotta run to class
