Column is too wide in table

After Osk autowikified the table, the second column is too wide. Having to use horizontal scrollbar in webpages is a PITB. David Haslam 10:19, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion for a new element in conf files

It would be useful to permit a non-specific element called simply Notes. This element could contain anything not covered by About, Description, CopyrightNotes or DistributionNotes, etc. It could be used to record further information about various aspects of the module or the module creation process such as a description of the preprocessing steps. Such information could be very useful to developers. David Haslam 13:13, 13 October 2011 (MDT)

Suggestion for new OSIS filter to toggle the appearance and activeness of dictionary lookup links

The xulsword application includes support for toggling the display of dictionary lookup references. This is implemented by means of the following additional properties in the configuration file for any OSIS text module.


The xulsword developer suggests that this idea might be useful to incorporate into the SWORD and JSword API, and for other front-ends to start to make use of it.

The policy advice in the localization section is somewhat ambiguous. Clarification is needed. David Haslam 03:52, 9 January 2012 (MST)

It's clarified a bit more now, I hope. --Osk 06:12, 9 January 2012 (MST)


Is there a default for OSISVersion (like there is for MinimumVersion) ? David Haslam 06:49, 20 January 2012 (MST)
