[libreoffice-documentation] Re: Proposed XHP extensions

Hi all concerned in writing Help pages!

I patched the LibreOffice Help submodule code with the following
extensions to XHP

Class Paragraph-like

<h1> ... <h6>

<note>, <tip> and <warning>

Class Character-like

<keycode>, <menuitem>, <input>, <literal>, <widget>

All these extensions above are documented in the XHP reference page in


Patch is



In any case these extensions break the existing markup and contents.

Please do not change existing contents based on these extensions, it
will force a useless re-translation.

However, it is OK when updating contents,  and use the opportunity to
also apply the extended markup.

Kind regards
