Embedded documents

hel-o
Hi,

i was just wondering how embedded documents work. The Syntax Help gives no example.

I don't know but is it just the include macro?

Thanks

When i look at http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/XWikiSyntax#HEmbeddeddocuments
i see an explanation of what is embedded document and an example of a
document content containing a header and a list inserted in a table
cell thanks to embedded document ((( ))) syntax. Is it the page you
looked when you say "Syntax Help" ?

Ok, should have seen this.

But still, why do you call it embedded documents. Don't now but it looks to me that this is used to include more complex syntax in tables (and it's great that thats possible!).

In XWiki the term document is somtimes used for documents like word documents or xar or anything you import or export to. Sometimes for wiki pages which are sometimes also only pages and now for pieces of documents that are included in documents or pages or ....

I find that sometimes confusing

That's the old name. If it's still there it needs to be changed. It's  
now called groups.

Re: Embedded documents

Wow great, so you can creat a div when you use ((( )))

Wouldnt it be better to call it Embedded Blocks since divs are block elements?

Groups you already use for User Groups

We already use the Block terminology (everything is a block). The fact  
that an element is standalone or inline is not suggested in its name.  
For example Horizontal Lines are called Horizontal Line event though  
it's a standalone block.

> Groups you already use for User Groups

Sure but it's a completely different context. We're inside syntax here.

However the most important reason we cannot change it is that it would  
require too much refactoring work now.

I've fixed the syntax page on http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/XWikiSyntax 
  (there's just a little pb with the TOC which will disappear I think  
when we convert the page to 2.0 syntax).

Thanks
