Re: Should one adopt the tag naming convention of anexisting X
Some better tools are overbuilt, old or don't have the functionality I need baked in. There is also a lot to learn from building tools, but more importantly, when one can build the tool from the toolkit builder, one can customize it to the precise conditions of the job. They don't always support a fast batch change and at crunch time, that ability pays dividends. There is nothing shabby about clicking on an element name and the search term showing up in the search box. So called better tools are also a reason for "taggers" who know almost nothing about XML. They don't exactly impress me because we have to deal with their inability to solve simple problems. They don't understand why cutting and pasting out of Word directly into an XML editor can create problems. len Quoting Uche Ogbuji <email@example.com>: > On Sun, Feb 5, 2012 at 9:21 AM, Len Bullard <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > >> "How often do you really click to cut and paste just an element name?" >> >> >> >> Quite a lot. *Usually when searching.
