patches welcome ;-)


Patches to what?  To WebSVN?  Do you happen to be the development
manager there as well?
Lynx, of course.  You have several times indicated that you see a place
where Lynx should be improved.

That is true; however, for the time being, and assuming that Lynx has the right not to handle XML (except that Lynx should display XML as text/plain unless the DOCTYPE says it is XHTML, recognising which in theory requires an XML reader but I believe it can be done with a regular expression for the typical case), it is the server that must be patched to cater to Lynx. I was mainly trying to elicit your opinion on the mechanism that could be used server-side to achieve that. (And it is not just about WebSVN, but about any server that sends XML to the client.) Regarding a possible patch, it is significantly easier to support XML than to support Javascript because the latter is an interactive programming environment while the former is merely a preprocessor. Would you prefer linking to libxml2, dynamically loading libxml2 or using xsltproc as an external tool?
