11:59
Typo and clarity fixes to the new fpp doc. ... (Leaf check-in: 2194b4d1 user: wyoung tags: fpp)
2024-04-26
17:36
Added internal link spacer to colordiff doc, without which the #diffutils reference appears to be a no-op. (Comment edit needed to fix Fossil eating the rest of the Vim-edited comment after the "#".) ... (check-in: fdd8057d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:35
Fixed a broken link in the new colordiff doc due to being extracted from the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: 44987916 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:33
Explained why we don't leave diff-command unset for the "bat" alternative. ... (check-in: 9fca91e8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:28
Added a new doc distilling all the common methods for getting colorized diffs. Extracted its seed from the gitusers doc in part because it isn't Git-specific, and because there are more options to cover, sufficient to justify a separate doc. ... (check-in: 7c99ebc5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:19
Indent fix in gitusers.md to make it use a monospace font for nested command examples. ... (check-in: dd8d1a58 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
16:17
The recent gitusers doc improvements allow a better HTML fragment target; the browser's scroll-back includes the new section header now rather than target a paragraph within another section. ... (check-in: 567658a7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:54
Clarity tweaks to the "Closing a Check-Out" section in the gitusers doc. ... (check-in: 6a4f2d23 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:32
In response to a recent forum thread, added a new section to the gitusers doc, "Fossil Never Auto-Commits". The ideas behind this were previously expressed implicitly, but con-fused with others, resulting in the lack of clarity characteristic of alchemical slag.

Put the new section before "There Is No Staging Area" as that follows on from these ideas, then calved off the subsequent section "Commit Splitting" because it covers related but separate ideas. Together, these three form a conceptual whole that is considerably clearer than the prior presentation. ... (check-in: 5f5452f1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

2024-04-23
13:48
Updated the release date for 2.24 in the changelog, plus a few minor grammar fixes. ... (check-in: 8cb7a744 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-03-30
20:48
Removed all references to "Fossil 2.1x" from the docs, excepting the changelog and the hashpolicy doc. The bulk of these were for 2.14 or older — *ten* versions back now! — and there is no reason to suppose such old versions are still in use any more. These notes were justified when they informed users about surprising changes and feature additions, but they now do nothing but clutter the docs. If I am wrong about people being surprised by these things, we still have the changelog, the timeline, and the forum. ... (check-in: ad47a447 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-03-16
23:01
Referenced prior commit's feature in the changelog ... (check-in: 6f532afa user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:56
Allow rendering of Pikchrs to SVG via /doc/…/foo.pikchr?popup URLs. This allows a file stored in the repo to be referenced as an SVG from other pages. ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: 758170bc user: wyoung tags: render-pikchr-via-doc-popup)
2024-02-29
19:48
Removed extra indent in the login groups doc. Not caught earlier because it's buried in the "caps" section. ... (check-in: a7255ba5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-28
18:16
URL fix in previous; remote path needs to be part of the URL, and we can avoid giving the local clone path by using the new clone-and-open functionality. ... (check-in: 69959fa5 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
18:10
Extended the sync doc with info about PATH implications of finding the fossil binary on the remote system over ssh: URLs, including formal documentation (for the first time?) of the ?fossil= query parameter. ... (check-in: a975ccb7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:52
Added fragment identifiers to the h2 and h3 levels of the sync doc, for referring to individual sections. ... (check-in: 5ca63acf user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-23
17:48
Reworked the handling of the three "selected" row cases in /timeline (current, first-in-range and last-in-range) so the borders and highlighting extend to the left margin. The "current" case (seen under "fossil ui" only, to indicate the ckout version) wasn't a problem, but the other two use background colors potentially confusable with branch colors. This makes the timelines more like that of the Fossil 2.23 and prior default skin (now called Étienne) but with rounded corners in the modern modes, matching the rest of the timeline.

This occurs in all timeline modes, including the classic, compact, and verbose views. The result is that the corners for these selected row types are rounded, but because they tend to be compact, it gives a full-round look on the ends. Avoiding this would require considerably more verbose CSS, and it's plenty intricate as it is. ... (check-in: 9568091a user: wyoung tags: trunk)

01:56
Extended [b272004b] to cover the "classic" timeline mode as well. ... (check-in: ef4a1e81 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
01:20
Comment cell highlighting in /timeline now takes into account the compact and verbose modes better, and it separates out the rounding from the coloring so it can apply less rounding and a bit more padding in these same two cases, to avoid having the text near the corners crash into the borders. ... (check-in: b272004b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-20
14:35
Changed home page title from "Home" to "A Coherent Software Configuration Management System" since docs now show the title in the body area. "Home" in the title area was fine, but now it wants something more explanatory of the page's content.

Moved the list of links on the right up a bit as a result.

Switched the ASCII hyphens to em dashes in the list of Fossil attributes belo. ... (check-in: 452726d6 user: wyoung tags: trunk)

2024-02-18
20:31
Improved appearance of the new CGI URL breakdown Pikchr: colorized it and made use of polygons instead of spindly lines to indicate the parts. ... (check-in: 11420bbb user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:56
Further improvements to pre styling, now taking MD forum posts into account. ... (check-in: 77f91620 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:46
Merged two redundant style rules for sidebars. Manual merge error? ... (check-in: 825efe96 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:35
Removed horizontal rules in backup doc used to offset the bigger code blocks. Between the new light-gray background and the indents, they're adding noise more than helping break the page up. ... (check-in: 6b520900 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:26
Removed manual indents in command and file examples in the ssl doc. ... (check-in: 1e0c0d04 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:24
Replaced use of inline "###" MD markup in the customgraph doc with simple boldfacing to avoid the indents given to all h3 now. Besides, headers inside lists…? Dodgy. ... (check-in: c2c55014 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:18
Removed manual indents in code examples in the pikchr doc ... (check-in: 1ed362da user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:17
Removed manual indents of code blocks in webui doc ... (check-in: 94375184 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:15
Replaced use of MD blockquotes for command examples with MD code blocks. ... (check-in: 006b61b0 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:10
The new skin's table styling now applies to docs served via /dir and /file URLs as well. Applying the new light-gray background styling on code blocks now, not just inline snippets. Lightened the gray level. ... (check-in: a9742101 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
15:03
Replaced blockquote-formatted commands in ssl-server doc with indented code blocks for consistency with the other docs. ... (check-in: f19f5369 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:59
Centered the Pikchrs in the rebaseharm doc, and replaced an HTML table with the MD equivalent. ... (check-in: 9607f5b4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:45
Replaced a use of local formatting for a code example in the aboutdownload doc with generic verbatim formatting. ... (check-in: fc2965be user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:43
Pikchr-ized the ASCII-art breakdown of the URL into CGI vars in the aboutcgi doc. ... (check-in: f4370d80 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:12
Replaced an HTML table in the hashes doc with the MD equivalent. This not only makes the markup version easier to read, it allows the skin's table styling to take full effect. ... (check-in: 7268a9b8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:08
Assorted improvements to Pikchr handling in the docs under the new skin. ... (check-in: b3d99d92 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:28
Removed extra indent in an MD code block. ... (check-in: eedcd150 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:27
Removed manual indents in verbatim blocks in forum doc. ... (check-in: 6c9755b9 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:25
The skin's new "indent" class for block elements doesn't apply to "p" tags due to CSS cascading rules. Changed them to divs to sidestep this limitation. Also fixed another instance of bold formatting interfering with abutting italics. ... (check-in: d8e2a3b8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:19
Modernized table-based formatting in delta_encoder_algorithm doc. ... (check-in: 65853cc1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:15
The chat doc was using blockquote MD markup for code examples, making them look different from all the others. ... (check-in: d6dff8d7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:08
Fixed another case of extra indenting in the globs doc ... (check-in: ea3925bd user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:06
Style tweak in the embedded doc: italic next to bold causes the slanted letters to crash into the surrounding bold text. Bold-italic solves that. ... (check-in: 99e6f717 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:04
Fixed a 5-space indent in one of the customskin doc's examples with MD's 4-space minimum to avoid extra indent. ... (check-in: b6fa99e8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
13:01
Replaced local "tt" formatting of command examples in the contribute doc with generic pre so that it is styled uniformly by the skin. ... (check-in: 647dadf2 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:45
Removed manual indents on command examples in the branching doc; the skin does that now. ... (check-in: ccd880e4 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:43
Merged another redundant page title in the whyusefossil doc. Also, making use of the new h5 level formatting to avoid the need for inline manual boldfacing. ... (check-in: b1a709a1 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:34
Replaced a few more bits of local formatting in the adding_code doc with generic "verbatim" blocks, uniformly styled by the skin. ... (check-in: 4003c654 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:31
Consolidated the dual titles in the tech_overview doc into one; the new body-area h1 tag for docs makes the old styling redundant. ... (check-in: 010e5527 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:15
Comment improvement ... (check-in: 261f80db user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:04
The inline "code" snippet styling in [4772a9b2] now applies to MD forum posts. ... (check-in: 32c4522d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-17
19:09
Proposed changes to the home page, mainly to work better with the new skin, but also a bit of a branding touch-up. ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: b85779e4 user: wyoung tags: new-home-page-title)
18:24
The h1 handling change in [b1f6753c] left a few definitions behind. Fixed. ... (check-in: 06a70ff8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:33
The increased line-height CSS for "code" blocks is now reflected into the line number column in /file?ln views, keeping the two in sync. ... (check-in: d7457526 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:14
Superior alternative to [e4aca28d1c3f5e8d]: instead of trying to treat the title on pages like /chat specially, treating the four main doc types specially, turning the body-area h1 on only in that case. This restores the Étienne skin's behavior for all other page types. ... (check-in: b1f6753c user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-11
13:23
Updated the customskin doc to cover the new WCAG semantic header/footer tagging, and to give advice on migrating from earlier versions, where custom skinning would have copy-pasted the old way of doing things. Linking to this advice from the changes doc for the benefit of those those paying attention to the change log. ... (check-in: b3f449e8 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
12:45
Removed the body-area h1 from the /chat message-area size calculation now that it's being suppressed in CSS. This should be a net zero now. ... (check-in: e4aca28d user: wyoung tags: trunk)
11:46
Suppressing the body-area "Chat" header on mobile. It takes up space to no useful end. ... (check-in: c0541318 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:56
Merged two near-identical lists of CSS selectors in the /chat JS into one. As far as I can tell, they _are_ supposed to be identical, since they're both concerned with calculating the "framing" elements of the chat area, being everything other than the list of messages. It looks like they slipped out of that ideal in the way duplicated code does. ... (check-in: 1cf4a7d7 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
10:27
Grammar fix in "Left-align my posts" /chat setting hint ... (check-in: aca0be16 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
2024-02-10
23:15
Applied semantic header and footer tag changes made to the default skin to all the others. This not only improves WCAG 2 conformance, it's necessary to allow the prior commit's changes to the /chat JS to find the equivalent header/footer/mainmenu/hbdrop tags in these skins, too. ... (check-in: 8f344297 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
22:12
Fixes to /chat's js to allow for the new skin changes. (Mea culpa; didn't even think to try /chat while working on all this.) ... (check-in: 4dc87985 user: wyoung tags: trunk)
17:36
Modernized the default skin, primarily to improve readability, and forked off the old default as "Étienne", named in honor of its creator. ... (check-in: 8a1ba49b user: wyoung tags: trunk)
14:29
Removed redundant sidebar styling; should've been done as part of [bcbd1c1e]. ... (Closed-Leaf check-in: 8aff4854 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
12:26
Removed a bunch of manual indents in pre blocks, MD fenced code blocks, etc. The skin does that for us now. ... (check-in: 2a7b1de3 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
11:20
Whitespace fix ... (check-in: 2ccdfa41 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
11:02
Applied a few whitespace fixes to etienne/css.txt matching those in default/css.txt, to make the diff between them easier to read. ... (check-in: ce479eea user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
11:00
Comment fix ... (check-in: 67a10cd7 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
10:56
Restored the page title font size to the old default when it's up above the menu bar. Lost this in all the font size shuffling, seen now in comparison to what we're now calling skin=etienne. ... (check-in: c013926f user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
10:28
Copied table formatting over to Étienne skin, but in monochrome form and without any of the extra whitespace in the default version. ... (check-in: f6897ff2 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
10:20
Moved most of the sidebar implementation up into default.css in a generic form so all skins share it, including Étienne. What remains behind in the new default skin are the accent colors for the background and the left border. The generic form simply applies a tint darkening to whatever background it finds itself on, which works for most of the stock skins. ... (check-in: bcbd1c1e user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
10:17
Applied Vim filetype modeline to the new Étienne skin so we don't lose syntax highlighting when bouncing between this and default. ... (check-in: 89ceba16 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
09:54
Initial fork of the trunk default skin into "Étienne" (a.k.a. "etienne" without the accent for easier use in ?skin=" and such) for use by those who want to return to the old default once this branch is merged to trunk.

At the moment, it is a straight copy with the intent of forming a baseline for the minimal changes I'm about to make in order to allow the Fossil doc changes on this branch to render reasonably. ... (check-in: 7d8631f1 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)

09:30
Added branch change summary to changes doc. ... (check-in: d08e47ce user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
09:22
Sidebars now float to the right of the main content when there's space to allow both. This doesn't wholly invalidate [c062e330], but this is a better overall solution. ... (check-in: 265412ee user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
09:15
Applied pre-wrap styling to the command example at the top of the checkin names doc to keep it from crashing into the Quick Reference sidebar on mobile. ... (check-in: c062e330 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
08:55
Applied the header and footer improvements from the wcag-2.1 branch. Changes generic divs with class labels into semantic elements that a browser can then treat specially, given their meaning. ... (check-in: b48e4836 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
08:44
Collected two wiki-related CSS items to keep the diff relative to trunk smaller. ... (check-in: 58fa5819 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
08:33
Whitespace fixes, for clarity ... (check-in: 235aaa02 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
08:29
Moved the bit applying extra line height to paragraph-type elements into the "@media screen" section. The justification for this only applies to wide browser windows. It's too much leading for smartphones. ... (check-in: db87ded1 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:45
Removed a stray semicolon ... (check-in: 228626bc user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:40
Added kbd, samp and var element selectors to the list getting monospace treatment in the default.css file. ... (check-in: a76312cd user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:37
Restored the #444 text color for headers, since bold and big text doesn't have the same need for high contrast ratios to be readable. ... (check-in: a3903958 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:18
Deepened the dark gray body text color enough to allow us to simultaneously hit the two targets specified by the WCAG 2 accessibility standard: the 4.5:1 minimum contrast ratio between the background and the link, and the 3:1 ratio between the link and the surrounding body text. We've been called out on accessibility grounds for our prior "#444" body text color before, so this change is not merely placating the calculator. We believe the WCAG standards are based on solid human factors research, and this is a good time to address that. ... (check-in: 2267249c user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
04:42
Extended [4772a9b2ccbb4c3c] to include less-common inline monospace tag types: var, samp, and kbd. Because this creates a nice and big combinatorial selector explosion, moved the explanation for this type of thing up from the "@media screen" handling of pre to this point, then referenced it from these places. Switched from SCSS to Sass syntax to make the examples clearer. This CSS is in fact generated from these samples, then hand-tweaked for clarity. ... (check-in: cb038b48 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
2024-02-09
08:25
Increased the brightness of unvisited links to bring their contrast up relative to body text above the 3:1 recommended by the WebAIM link contrast checker. This unavoidably drops the contrast with the background from around 4:1 to 3:1, but if links are kept short (ideally, one word only) this is a good tradeoff. ... (check-in: 17a64176 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
08:16
Replaced static pale blue background for selected forum posts with a CSS animation that fades the default.css blue out to white over a second after page load. Also made the left border of the forumSel post's box heavy to serve as an after-animation selection indicator. ... (check-in: 9df0a451 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
03:09
Simplified the style overrides on the fossil-v-git doc's ToC table to give the browser more layout freedom, preventing it from being clipped off on the right edge on smaller mobile devices. ... (check-in: ca973301 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
02:52
Removed extra whitespace in command examples in fossil-v-git doc. Skin does that now. ... (check-in: b3687279 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
02:30
Backed off on mobile body font size reduction from 0.8em to 0.9em for the same reason we did it for desktop. ... (check-in: 3e230920 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
02:29
Experimental styling of inline code and tt blocks in user content like everyone else (Stack Exchange, GitHub, Reddit, Discord…) do, with a light gray background and slight expansion of the box area, to offset it from the prose. ... (check-in: 4772a9b2 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
02:13
Abandoned the +5% size bump for monospace fonts entirely. Its correctness is far too contingent on the font selected and the browser's quirks. ... (check-in: 9f3e59cf user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
01:36
Reduced the font size adjustment for monospace fonts from +10% to +5% after testing on mobile, and made it apply to the same list of monospace font classes defined in src/default.css. ... (check-in: e220683a user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
01:19
Simplified the SCSS example code by use of the language's "&" feature and an extra layer to handle the .content commonality. ... (check-in: 6ad8bc58 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
01:18
Dropped the div.content layer out for /fileedit and /wikiedit. If it were necessary, we'd have to invert these two, but it isn't due to the earlier point about these selectors being plenty specific via direct ID element targeting. ... (check-in: 3f21415f user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
01:00
Don't need to be as specific on the selectors targeting the /fileedit and /wikiedit preview tabs due to their use of "<div id=" naming. There is no reasonable possibility for an overreach here. ... (check-in: 902ea745 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
00:17
Merged pikchr changes from trunk. (About to rebuild the containers, and we need both sets of changes on the public demo mirror.) ... (check-in: e471c5ff user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
00:15
Small tweak to make comment match code ... (check-in: fb0c1e71 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
00:12
The /fileedit and /wikiedit preview areas now show the skin's @media screen indent levels properly. The nine selectors we previously had per top-level tag had to become _sixteen_ (!) owing to Fossil's historical lack of consistency in applying parent classes. We could clean it all up on this branch, but then who knows how many custom skins that would break… ... (check-in: 0d7cdbb0 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
2024-02-08
22:38
Removed the duplicate copy of the SCSS input to the selector explosion in default/css.txt. It's getting too complex to maintain the duplication, and it's about to get worse. Linking it by reference now. ... (check-in: f5a80cad user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
22:18
Added yet another special-case handler for the new skin's @media screen indent applicator. We were handling wiki embedded docs before, but we weren't handling the /wiki pages themselves. These appear with a top-level body class of "wiki", not "doc". ... (check-in: a1ebcb23 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
20:35
Merged trunk changes in ... (check-in: 9a9276d6 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
2024-02-04
05:52
Applied the new div class=sidebar styling to a few more cases in the docs. ... (check-in: 701ea4d0 user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:43
Removed extra indent level from the release doc link in the permuted index, generated by the mkindex.tcl script. ... (check-in: 01764fea user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:27
Moved the page title on mobile from after the project name and the slash separator in the header to just above the content area, styled as a separate "h1" element, same as in an embedded doc with an "h1" inline. This accommodates long page titles better on narrow screens while leaving desktop-class windows alone. Reduced the size of h1 to be closer to h2 as a consequence. Also removed the new logo's top-padding on mobile to fit in better with all this. ... (check-in: f2ef252e user: wyoung tags: inskinerator-modern-backport)
05:06

04:42
Added three new block-element classes to the skin to replace use of "blockquote" with semantic alternatives:
  • "indent" for cases where the only purpose was to indent things
  • "blockquote" where you want an actual block quote in a wiki doc and thus can't use a "blockquote" element due to the historical misuse of this tag, preventing us from doing the same for it as we do for MD
  • "sidebar" when the reason you wanted an indented paragraph was to create a sidebar; this is styled much like a blockquote in MD (or the new "blockquote" class in wiki docs) but floats to the right.

Using all three of these in the remaining www/ docs that still used explicit "blockquote" tags.

(If you're wondering why the prior commit claims to have dealt with all of these tags when this commit belies that, it's because this work was done en masse, then split up into two related commits to keep the commit messages more on-point. It was easier to commit these two chunks of work in this order. It would have required a complicated dance with the stash to commit them in the more logical order.) ...

Replaced nearly all explicit uses of the "blockquote" tag in the embedded docs:
  • Constructs like "<blockquote><pre>" are now simply "<pre>"
  • Ditto "<blockquote><b>" for command examples, which then allowed me to get rid of explicit "br" elements; pre does that for us.
  • Where it was used merely to get an indent for a code block, we're now using pre or verbatim instead, depending on whether we need embedded HTML and/or pre-wrap handling. (Not the same thing as the prior item.) In some places, this let us replace use of HTML-escaped code blocks in pre with verbatim equivalents, not needing the escaping, allownig the doc source to read more like the rendered HTML.
  • Use of blockquotes to get hierarchical indenting is no longer necessary; the skin does that. A good example is indenting ol and ul lists under the parent paragraph; additional manual indenting is no longer necessary.

The only remaining instances of "blockquote" under www/ are necessary:

  1. The copyright release doc is plain HTML, without the fossil-doc wrapper, giving it no access to the new skin improvements.
  2. One MD doc wants a blockquote in the middle of a list, and the current parsing rules don't let us use ">" there.
  3. The skinning ...

Disabling the "auto paragraph" feature in the wiki renderer when styling an HTML "table" element. Without this, the first cell's contents gets wrapped in "p" tags, unnecessarily. (None of the other cells are treated thus.) With the trunk default skin, this extra tag was invisible, but with this branch's skin, it shows up as a double-height first row in every table. For tables with a header row, this may appear to be an intentional esthetic choice, but it's not; it's a rendering bug.

It is possible to trick the wiki to HTML renderer into leaving the first paragraph unwrapped by "p" tags, as with the checkin_names.wiki doc, in which case you get no first-line padding. The trunk version of the skin works around this by putting 10px of padding in at the top, which we dialed back out in Inskinerator Modern since the MD renderer does not do this. Put it back, but as 1ex around the whole doc, giving a smidge of breathing room in odd cases like this one without putting too much in for the other cases where the paragraph spacing suffices. ...

Changed the timeline highlight colors so that the secondary value (used in e.g. /vdiff&to) is a lighter and more saturated version of the primary accent color, being the header font color, and the secondary is a one-eighty hue shift on this. This results in a small color difference for the former, more complementary to the overall skin colors but still a light blue. The primary color — used in /info timelines and for the /vdiff&from cell — is more significantly shifted, a pale orange now rather than a bright yellow. This results from basic color theory; to maintain a yellow under this one-eighty hue rule, we'd have to make the secondary color purple, not blue.

Inskinerator Modern uses that rule to shift all the ancillary colors when you shift one of the primaries, saving the user from having to specify each derived color name manually. Fossil's hard-coded skins don't have that same motivation, and as hard-coded defaults, the old "office highlighter" colors were fine, but once you get down to specific instances, we don't want to use arbitrary color, we want them to be analogous or complementary to the main accent color. ...
