Thanks for the quick reply. Being a mainframe programmer I don't delve into html/xml or anything remotely current but it pays the bills. As far as the formatting of html exporting goes I think having an initial index page with links to each entry would be awesome. It would probably be fine to merge multiple entries for a given day on the same page. I would think most people would not make a lot of entries on the same day.
Again, thanks so much!
One question I have is about exporting to xml. When I try viewing it in either FF3 or IE7 I only get the document tree (raw html code). ...
Am I saving it incorrectly?
No, you're doing everything correctly, this is exactly what's supposed to happen.
The idea of the XML export is that all of your data is encoded in a form that's easily read by any software that cares to do so. That is, any other diary software could easily extend their features to allow importing LifeSaver's output. It's not supposed to be human-readable, at least not in any pleasing form.
However, I do plan to build an HTML export into the program as well. Perhaps you could tell me what your expectations are.
How would you like to see HTML output be organized? For example, should it be just one giant long page (probably not)? Or should there be an index page listing all the entries, or maybe the index should be a frame, opening up individual entries internally? Or maybe somewhere inbetween, grouping, say, all the entries within a month into single pages, with an index for the months?
