Creating HTML applications in Survo                  (Kimmo Vehkalahti 1996-)

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is used in World Wide Web to describe the
structure of Web pages. The HTML documents consist of pure text and various
control codes, called tags, plus some special characters. That kind of text
is easily produced and managed in Survo, without a need to spoil the whole
text with the HTML codes. Instead, the HTML codes are indicated in the edit
field using
    control characters (characters in the control column),
    shadow characters (colors),
    various code words in brackets on the control lines.

The HTML text files are produced by the PRINT operation using a special driver
HTML40.DEV . It translates the Survo codes to the HTML codes and converts the
text to the ISO-Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) character set.

The final layout of a page is decided by a browser, such as Netscape, Lynx,
Opera, or Internet Explorer. HTML only defines the structure of the document.
The presentation issues may be suggested by CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).

                          See next page for new possibilities (added in 2006)!

By using the sucro /HTML-PRINT, ready-made documents can be converted to Web
documents. The sucro /HTML-TAB makes cross-tabulations like TAB and converts
the table to Web form. Read more information about these sucros by activating
/HTML-README .   [These sucros may be a bit out-of-date...] 

New in 2006: HTML is also useful for moving tables from Survo to MS Word,
for example. Check the sucro below to see how to proceed!
