Post by Igor Sobrad » Wed, 10 Sep 2003 16:32:41



There is a problem related with the FAQ 3.x questions numbering scheme.
This patch will fix the numbers in the sections:

The next one fixes the contents file.  I only changed the question
numbers for the latest FAQ release (not for previous ones).  Perhaps
the right way to proceed will be adding a new entry explaining the
changes introduced by the previous patch:

--- contents    Tue Sep  9 09:10:47 2003

                            New Questions

-3.17 How can I avoid reading the HTML version of the message?
-3.18 How do I view or save attachments?
-3.19 How do I view HTML attachments with Netscape?
+3.18 How can I avoid reading the HTML version of the message?
+3.19 How do I view or save attachments?
+3.20 How do I view HTML attachments with Netscape?
 5.23 How can I remove those "=20" characters when forwarding?
 5.24 Can I use mh-format substitution with forw?
 8.01 I have a question about mh-e.

At last, this patch will fix two filters in the FAQ.  It is better
adding an space between the ">" and the replied text, as adding
an space after the message ID.

--- part1       Tue Sep  9 09:08:45 2003

     overflowtext="",overflowoffset=0
     message-id:nocomponent,formatfield=\
-    "In message %{text}you write:"
-    body:component=">",overflowtext=">",overflowoffset=0

+    body:component="> ",overflowtext="> ",overflowoffset=0

   or

     overflowtext="",overflowoffset=0
     date:component="Your message dated",formatfield=\
     "%<(nodate{text})%{text}%|%(pretty{text})%>"
-    body:component=">",overflowtext=">",overflowoffset=0
+    body:component="> ",overflowtext="> ",overflowoffset=0

   Setting overflowoffset to 0 keeps MH from doing anything to
   extra-long lines in the headers.  In the body, however, this

Cheers,
Igor.
