The boilerplate issue concerns the page header, the page footer, and the
color scheme. This also includes logos.

Also included is page layout control, in the sense that SS creates
tables to control layout, where those tables were not in the
user-created content.

So, when I talk about extraneous content, it's the above I'm
referring to.

I can pretty much guarantee I won't be able to participate in the IRC
chat today @16:00 PST.

Also, I'll be out of email range after this post.


Well I used the ones that the .de "box" project used.  If the
SilverStripe system uses a different format, then there will be some
changes.  If they use the same CSS files, the pages will just need to
have their relative URL in the headers instead of the one that are
being used now.  By making that change, the formating of the pages
should be mostly automatic and may need little editing on our part
[hopefully], except some content style issues.

It's more complicated than that.

When the pages were copied, the copied material included a header,
footer, logos (aka "matter"). Let's deal with that first. The purpose of
SilverStripe (SS) is to provide that matter for every page it formats.
When the pages were copied for the purpose of inclusion on the NADVD,
the copy included that matter. We removed the logo references and
replaced them with our own.  When we go to put the pages back into SS,
we'll have to strip out the matter.

For every page generated by SS, we will also get a TDF logo in the
header in place of the NADVD logo (don't quote me on this, I'm sure it's
possible to override. I think Friedrich was setting up alternate themes,
but I haven't checked since that conversation).

That leaves the page body.

SS formatted the content of each page body (that's one reason for using
SS) on the day that page was copied for the NADVD. That formatting
process put the content into one or more HTML tables. That HTML will
have to be stripped out, since SS will provide it again to generate the
formatted page. If we didn't strip out the HTML table code, then we
would see layout issues.
