Description zikmund 2004-06-10 13:48:55 UTC
The BCL is included in installer in HTML format.
I'd like to improve its readability. Now it is
VERY unfriendly text which consists of lots of
parts (some of them in pure ASCII unformatted
form) without sections' hyperlinks etc.

My suggestions:

1) Provide hyperlinks of sections like XML Parser,
JavaHelp, etc. in 1st paragraph. Provide hyperlink
to "content" or "top" at the beggining of each

2) Provide better and consistent HTML formatting
(based on styles).
At least do not use *pre* tag to have text in
paragraphs which are fully readable in the window
so that you don't need to use bottom scroll bar.

Notice: I think that if someone wants to read the
BCL or find something there, he will give it up in
several seconds because of this unfriendly formatting.

3) Move the end instructions "Please read and
accept or decline" to the beggining.

unlikely 6.0 is the target milestone -> 5.5.1
