Hi :)
Errr, it's better to use a simple text-editor rather than a word-processor
for this.

Word-processors tend to want to add extra coding or do other odd things.

I'm not sure which text-editor you get by default in PClinuxOS, it usually
depends more on the DE than the OS.  It's like that supermarket analogy
again.  PClinux OS is one of the supermarkets and the DE can often be
swapped out for another one.  If your DE is Gnome then your default
text-editor might well be GEdit, for KDE it's likely to be Kate.  Leafpad
is quite nice.  There's (in)famous ones such as Vi for command-line only.
There's a huge range.

Mostly in the status-bar at the bottom of the window it'll show the words
"Plain text".  You can click on that and choose a wide range of different
mark-up and programming languages.  Alternatively one of the menus, such as
"View" might be another way of getting to that drop-down.  The
colour-coding is cleverly calculated by the text-editor instead of being
coded into the contents.

Recently i found that GEdit has Extensions/plugins/addons and one helpfully
does some sort of predictive text or/and has a list of commonly used code
and selecting that kinda pastes the bit of code into document.  Kate and
the rest probably have similar features.

 Hi All

Can I get some help on this please??

I have read about, and looked-up, the possibility of editing HTML
documents in Writer but can not get it to work!!
No matter what I do I can not fine 'HTML Mode' or 'View HTML' as talked
about ion the help files.
I can load my document but can not get at the HTML code.

What am I missing or doing wrong??

I'm using LO 4.3 on PClinuxOS (latest)

Thanks for any help.
