Fix: Smart quote replacement now also performed in Topic Titles

June 30th, 2014

The Textile renderer was already replacing single quotes, apostrophes and double quotes in Topic Body text with “smart quotes”, also called curly quotes.
However, one of our customers reported that Manula was not doing the same in Topic Titles, which is of course not consistent.

Today we fixed that, as shown in the following screen shots:

The quotes as seen in the editor:
smart-quotes-textile-code

The quotes the way they are now shown in live manuals:
smart-quotes-live

Thanks for reporting this, David Brown!

New: use HTML in your manual topics

December 11th, 2013

Manula now allows HTML tags in topics, which can be used for two purposes:

  • For displaying HTML codes in Textile code blocks @ .. @ and bc.
    (< and > are automatically replaced by &lt; and &gt; within code blocks).

  • For advanced formatting using HTML instead of Textile.
    (all tags are allowed except <script>>. For security reasons, <script>> tags will be disabled by replacing them with <scr1pt>.)
