Here's what's up with XML and Frontier. Il fait chaud!
Outlines play a big role in Frontier. Scripts are outlines and so are menus. I've been using outliners for so long, they've become part of my basic vocabulary, it's easy to forget that for some people they are new and perhaps strange things.
Wesley Felter has been working on new verb docs for Frontier 5. The first group of docs are ready for review. Most of the verbs on the site are cross-platform. More coming soon! Keep diggin Wes!

I'd pay $100 for a Windows utility that took a snapshot of the front window and saved it to a GIF file in one keystroke. Please don't send me mail about solutions that require more than one keystroke.
Thanks to Dino Morelli! HyperSnap-DX looks like it fits the bill!
I'd pay $150 if I could tell it to do that from a script (I could load the gif into the database and build a web page too). It would make the docs flow much more smoothly. That's important to me because...
I don't like writing docs. I especially don't like the drudgery of writing docs.
Another wish. It would be great to have a Frontier-compatible DLL that produces a Zip file. It would take the same parameters as Stuff.createArchive on the Mac. As far as I know, no one is working on this.
