This page documents the four last functions of the HTML Utilities menu.
Adds tags to the document which makes it possible to automatically update
the date and time when the document is saved. Two tags inside HTML comments
TEXT="some text" FORM="date format" LANG="language"
some text and date
Whenever the document is saved the date is updated. Do not write anything
between the comment tags. It will be removed when the document is saved.
Character translation is done automatically of the text and date.
When you use Last Modified... in the HTML Utilities
menu a dialog box is opened where you can specify:
- the text before the date. (Default: Last modified) You can change the
default text in the general preferences dialog box.
- the date format, relaxed ISO, strict ISO, long, abbreviated or short.
Relaxed and strict ISO are universal while the other three formats are
language dependent. (We here show the U.S. format.)
- Relaxed ISO 2001-01-14 15:07
- Strict ISO 2001-01-14T15:07:18+01:00
- Long Sunday, January 14, 2001 3:07 PM
- Abbreviated Sun, Jan 14, 2001 3:07 PM
- Short 1/14/01 3:07 PM
- if the weekday should be included in the date. (Applies to the Long
and Abbreviated formats.)
- if the time should be included in the date. (Applies to all except the
Strict ISO format.)
- it the time should be given in seconds. (Applies to all except the
Strict ISO format.)
- the language of the date format. (Applies to the Long, Abbreviated, and
Short formats.) If no language is specified the format in the Date and
Time control panel is used.
Note! The short time format can be confusing. For example 4/5/66
means 4 May 1966 in some parts of the world and April 5, 1966 in other parts.
Calculates the size of the current window including
images etc. The following limitations apply:

Makes an index of
the document with an item for each header H1-6. If there already exists an
index in the document it is replaced, otherwise a new one is inserted at
the current position.
The index can be done using either PRE or an UL list. When Alpha makes the
index it goes through the window and looks for all headers. If there is an
anchor <A NAME="..."> inside a header that anchor is used when
building the index, otherwise an anchor is inserted inside the header.
Alpha then inserts
The index consists of a list with links to the various headers.
