REQ: HTML editor to reorganize directories suitable for a CHM eBook compiler input.

Hello,

I have an eBook which I need to create a CHM version for. It
contains hundreds of HTML files.

Can anyone recommend a HTML authoring tool which will allow me
to create new directories and sub-directories, to move the
required files there AND to update all links automatically
between files (to and fro) as those files change directories?

Eg. Should I use Dreamweaver or GoLive or something else to do
this.

The current book had hundreds of files which are nearly all in
the root directory (eg. several files per chapter). I want to
reorganize these into the following structure suitable for a CHM
file:

preface
part 1
Chapter 1
topic 1
topic 2
etc.

part 2
etc.

appendix
appendix A
appendix B
etc.

Index
A
B
C
etc.

GoLive works but it's a bit slow to rewrite the links when files
are moved to new directories.

Have people found Dreamweaver to be better for this kind of
thing?

I'm thinking of implementing a real-time collaborative text editor in Python using Twisted. An initial plan is to use a Twisted PB server daemon that accepts user:password:file connections from text editor clients to make changes to a specified file on the server, and have the text editor clients update their local copies of the file based on local user input or input entered from other users, relayed via the server. Jabber compatibility...

Are we going backwards ? (please excuse my spelling...) In my opinion an absolute YES ! Take a look at what we are doing ! we create TAGS, things like <H1> etc. and although there are tools (dreamweaver and the like), they are all at the lowest level of programming (something like assembly as oposed to C++ etc.). These tools create "brain-dead" developers that constantly have to plough through tons of tags to do the simplest thing. ...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
