    It looks awesome! I'm glad you managed to include the pic, and the description as well. I hope I'll be able to continue with Byzacena as soon as possible.

    Regarding the "xml conversion tool" you are using -- is that something that a coder could modify or a utility that could be replaced with a new custom version?

    The specific problem (removing spaces before or after) seems as if it might be corrected at that stage to make M2TW happy.

    If so, what language might said coder need to work in?

    Just a thought so tossing-in my two mites since italics sound useful/desirable from a few other comments I have seen.

    The tool was developed by a former team member, and unfortunately we don't have anybody with the technical skill to go in and address the italics issue. Here's the link to the thread where the tool was made available to the public. If you have the skills to navigate through that thing and can make the adjustments necessary, that would be awesome!

    Thanks Kull. I was able to download the source and binary files linked in that thread. It is Java -- which I did use to develop a couple of small apps many years back, and NetBeans, which I have seen but never used as an IDE. The updates and discussions in the thread should help understanding, though mostly unfamiliar topics to me...

    I will try to get a handle on the utility but cannot promise that I will progress rapidly in understanding enough to find and correct the issues -- but am willing to try to bring myself up-to-speed as time permits in the near future.

    It would be swell to give something back to the project that has provided me so much education and entertainment over the years!
