* make a php-page which is smaller than a normal screen (let's say
250 x 350)
* put the basic dukuwiki-rules in it on a left column
* in the right column the same wikirules but than parsed (i guess
this is the right term, i mean where the wiki syntax has been
replaced in real bold and italic)
* no explaination, only a link to the full syntax (back in the
previous window if possible?? or a new when using IE :-P )
* and edit the link of 'syntax' so when you click on it, you first
see the quick syntax
I know iframes are generally frowned upon, but ....
Could this be handled by a floating div (normally hidden) containing an
iframe which loads the dokuwiki syntax page(1) in what amounts to a cut
down template - just the "tpl_content()" nothing else. Much of the
default design.css is based in ems(2), controlling the font-size will
scale the page some. The advantage of doing something like this is much
of what is required is already in existence and the syntax data can be
supplied from cache.
(1) It would be necessary to disable any links - we're aren't actually
using a separate browser window, clicking a link would mean a page
replacing the page under edit, which is extremely undesirable.
(2) Might be worthwhile to change any of the existing px measurements in
design.css into ems.
Perhaps if the whole lot was controlled by js - can js be used to load
remote data onto a page? If so some js could manage links and the
syntax page could be broken up into smaller chunks. But then that
starts to get more complex again....
