Any boost developer can update the Boost website content between releases.
tidyhelps in preventing errors in the HTML, in keeping a clear revision history, and in conforming to Web standards to help make the website readable by the majority of people. The Boost web pages currently have a variety of different types of HTML and XHTML content. Each needs to be dealt with differently by
tidy. Most pages are regular HTML 3.x/4.x, for these use a
tidy --tidy-mark no -i -wrap 78 -m some_page.htmlOther pages are using the more recent XHTML 1.0 and XHTML 1.0 Strict standards. Most notably this include the home page. Some additional options are needed to make
tidyenforce the XHTML standard:
tidy --tidy-mark no -i -wrap 78 -m -asxhtml some_page.htmlThat command is also useful if one is converting from HTML to XHTML. To have
tidycheck for the XHTML 1.0 Strict format use:
tidy --tidy-mark no -i -wrap 78 -m -asxhtml --doctype strict some_page.htmlIf you have a choice as to what format to use, prefer the XHTML 1.0 Strict format as that opens the content to the widest audience.
scp'ing to the appropriate subdirectory of
shell.sf.net:/home/groups/b/bo/boost/htdocs/. For example, to update the page you are reading, I would issue
scp updating_the_website.html email@example.com:/home/groups/b/bo/boost/htdocs/more/
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "chmod a+r,g+rw /home/groups/b/bo/boost/htdocs/more/updating_the_website.html"
