Description

The rendering engine used in ptII/kepler is about 10 years out of date. It gets confused on elements like end tags and fully relies on tables for layout. We need to add a better rendering engine for showing html if we want to continue to support html documentation.

History

#1 Updated by Christopher Brooks almost 11 years ago

This is really more of a Java bug than anything.
Ptolemy uses javax.swing.JEditorPane in actor.gui.HTMLViewer

In Ptolemy, to invoke the user browser (IE, Firefox etc.),
append #in_browser to a URL.
See
