Not sure what the term 'solute' is supposed to mean but if you suggest that DmdHtml does not create directories, you are perfectly right. Therefore I have posted instructions how to use it. This program was never meant to be used by anyone besides myself, but I have decided to upload it instead of the already modified files which were too big for the new server. It (and its results) can be used as a reference by anyone interested, but that's about it. DmdHtml does a gentle cleaning of existing HTML documentation, but it does not solve the majority of problems. It is probably risk-free to use because it targets only known problematic sequences in the files without breaking anything. Walter could have used it for the 0.134 release but I guess he deemed that the benefits would not outweigh eventual risks involved. The question is did he mistrust my programming skills or his dmd compiler being still alpha stage ???? :-)BTW, phobos has a separate style.css I suggest using the outer one by import statement. ====phobos/style.css here================ import url("../style.css"); ====end here ========================
Excellent idea, but I am not the one to decide. Maybe Walter will follow your suggestion. Alternatively he could update the <ink ..> tags of the files in the phobos directory instead of using two sets of stylesheets. The new one I have supplied is anyway meant to work with files in both directories.

The only reason two style sheets are used instead of one is pure sloth on my part.

I perfectly understand. ;-) But here is the solution based on solotony's recommendation: - move the latest "style.css" (probably the one in phobos) to the "d" directory. - rename it to something like "marsstyle.css" - keep in all subdirectories a "style.css" consisting of only one line. For d/phobos file contents should be: import url("../marssstyle.css"); fir the d directory you want to use: import url("marssstyle.css"); Benefits: You can move directories and files and you have just to keep and maintain one valid copy of the "marsstyle.css". Instead of editing every <link> tag in those HTML files which are to be moved to a different location, you just keep your "style.css" files in all current and future subdirectories pointing to the proper location of "marsstyle.css".
