yahtml is a package to support creating HTML documents on Emacsens.  Easy
input of elements (tags) by completion, syntax checking with programs like
weblint, and invoking the appropriate browser or image viewer depending on
the cursor position is its main features.

(This Info is still incomplete)

Installing yahtml

* Setting environment variables for WWW pages::

File: yahtmle, Node: Setting up yahtml, Next: Setting environments for weblint browsers and image viewers, Prev: Installation, Up: Installation

Setting up yahtml

Add the following to `~/.emacs'

     (setq auto-mode-alist
           (cons (cons "\\.html$" 'yahtml-mode) auto-mode-alist))
     (autoload 'yahtml-mode "yahtml" "Yet Another HTML mode" t)

Next, add to load-path the directory with the yahtml files (`yahtml.el',
`yatexlib.el', `yatexprc.el').  For example, if you put them in

     (setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/src/emacs/yahtml") load-path))

is what you add.

By this, yahtml will be automatically loaded when editing files with .html
extensions.  "yahtml" will be displayed on the mode line if no errors

File: yahtmle, Node: Setting environments for weblint browsers and image viewers, Next: Setting environment variables for WWW pages, Prev: Setting up yahtml, Up: Installation

Setting environments for weblint, browsers, and image viewers

Check the variables for invoking external commands and modify as needed.
Defaults are in parenthesis.

             ... browser command name (netscape)
             ... image viewer command name (xv)
             ... syntax check programs command name (jweblint)
             ... kanji code for HTML files

File: yahtmle, Node: Setting environment variables for WWW pages, Prev: Setting environments for weblint browsers and image viewers, Up: Installation

Setting environment variables for WWW pages

Variables regarding path names for files that will be your home page.
             ... list of matching path name on file system and URLs
             ... index file displayed when none is given in URL.  Usually
             `index.html' on NCSA type httpd and `Welcome.html' on CERN

Examples for `yahtml-path-url-alist'.  If `/home/yuuji/http/' is
`http://localhost/~yuuji' at home and `/usr/home/yuuji/www/' is
`' at work, then

     (setq yahtml-path-url-alist
           '(("/home/yuuji/http" . "http://localhost/~yuuji")
             ("/usr/home/yuuji/www" . "")))

Any number of additions can be made to this list.

File: yahtmle, Node: Command Invocation, Next: Completion, Prev: Installation, Up: Top

Invoking external commands

For easy use of commands that are handy when editing HTML files.
`[prefix] t j'
             ... Invoke HTML syntax checker (jweblint)
`[prefix] t p'
             ... Display current page in browser
`[prefix] t r'
             ... Reload current page if browser is already running

File: yahtmle, Node: Completion, Next: Jump, Prev: Command Invocation, Up: Top

Completion Input

Completion input of HTML elements is done through the same key strokes as
YaTeX's begin-type completion, section-type completion, large-type
completion, maketitle-type completion, and accent completion.
Corresponding elements in this order is; elements that span multiple
lines, empty elements such as img, tags that start and end in a single
line, elements with no attributes or contents, and special or symbol

`[prefix] b (YaTeX begin-type completion)'

     Completion for elements that the start tag and the end tag span
     multiple lines. Mostly block-level elements.

`[prefix] s (YateX section-type completion)'
          <img src="foo.gif" alt="photo">

     Completion for elements that do not have end tags and require only
     attributes.  Possible completions are, <img>, <input>.

`[prefix] l (YaTeX large-type completion)'

          <big> �` </big>

     Similar to begin-type completion but used for elements that start and
     end on a single line.

`[prefix] m (YaTeX maketitle-type completion)'
     ... Completion for elements without attributes or contents.  Possible
     completion is <br>

`[prefix] a (YaTeX accent completion)'
     ... Used to enter special or symbol entities.  By default completion
     for < (&lt;), > (&gt;), & (&amp;), " (&quot;), ' (&apos;), blank
     (&nbsp;) is possible.

Cursor Movement
By using

`[prefix] g'
             ... move to corresponding object

the cursor will go to the corresponding object according to the context.
Recognized contexts are

   * `<TAG>' <--> `</TAG>'
   * `<img src="image.file">' -> invoke viewer
   * `<a href="">' -> move cursor to linked target
   * `<applet code="program">' -> open Java source

Changing and Deleting

* Menu:

* Changing tags in pairs::
* Changing entities::
* URLencoding of strings within region::
* td-enclosure/tr-enclosure::

File: yahtmle, Node: Changing tags in pairs, Next: Changing entities, Prev: Changing and Deleting, Up: Changing and Deleting

Changing tags in pairs
By using

`[prefix] c'
             ... change tags in matching pairs

the content can be changed according to the context of the HTML document
where the cursor is located.

   * `<TAG>'�``</TAG>'
     ... change `TAG' element name
   * attributes such as `<img src="image.file" alt="photo">'
     ... change attributes

File: yahtmle, Node: Changing entities, Next: URLencoding of strings within region, Prev: Changing tags in pairs, Up: Changing and Deleting

Changing entities
Special characters such as < or > must be written as &lt; and &gt;.  Easy
conversion of these characters can be done when importing text from non
HTML files.

`[prefix] ;'
             ... convert char to special entity in marked region
`[prefix] :'
             ... convert special entity to original char in marked region
             (reverse of [prefix] ;)

File: yahtmle, Node: URLencoding of strings within region, Next: td-enclosure/tr-enclosure, Prev: Changing entities, Up: Changing and Deleting

URLencoding of strings within region

`[prefix] #'
        ... encode chars that needs to be URLencoded within region

File: yahtmle, Node: td-enclosure/tr-enclosure, Prev: URLencoding of strings within region, Up: Changing and Deleting

If you wan to convert series of field into <td>...</td> repetitions for
table element, td-enclosure or tr-enclosure is convenient.

      `[prefix] }'

        ... Enclose each field in a region into <td>...</td>'s.
      `[prefix] ]'

        ... Enclose each line in a region into <tr>...</tr>'s, with every
             line converted to <td>...</td> repetition.  They presume
             white space as field separator by default.  To change this,
             enter other delimiting character for a query.  You can
             convert CSV, for example, into table by specifying comma(,)
             as a delimiter.

If you want to enclose fields with th, call with universal-argument
(`C-u').  Enter `th' to enclose fields with <th>...</th>.  The special
answer `thd' means that enclose the only first column with th, and the
rest with td.

CSS(Style Sheets) Support

* Menu:

* CSS-class completion::
* Reread CSS definition::

File: yahtmle, Node: CSS-class completion, Next: Reread CSS definition, Prev: CSS Support, Up: CSS Support

CSS class-name completion
You can input a class name in your CSS definition with completion.  If you
have CSS defined as below;, { background-color: 0xffffff; }, { font-size: 120%; }

when you input h1(or h2) tag with completing-read by [prefix] b or
[prefix] l, yahtml prompts you to input class name with completion from
the words which are effective to h1 or h2.  And if you defined global
class like this;

      .caution { font-size: 120%; background-color: 0xc00000;}

when you input any tags via completing-read, yahtml prompts you to input
class name.  If this is bothering, typing `C-j' instead of
`RET' (or `C-m') cancels the next prompt to class name completion.

File: yahtmle, Node: Reread CSS definition, Prev: CSS-class completion, Up: CSS Support

Re-reading CSS definition
If you add some class to your CSS file and you want yahtml to load new
definitions, type `M-x yahtml-mode RET' to make yahtml do.
