No reason It can't be HTML. An optional property probably more user friendly, look in the engine to see how the textfield is getting built and how to set it's size: thre';s something else I need to figure out this morning...

Subject: [Xerte-dev] enabling html for LO and page titles or size control for page title?

Hi all
I can't remember if we've discussed this before but could html be enabled for LO title and/or page title or is there a reason it can't?

If for some reason html can't be enabled what about an LO optional property controlling page title size throughout the LO?

The main reason I ask this is that it often crops up that people want to have longer page titles than there is room for especially when a logo and the help button is also in use. The help button is a useful feature and underused but when added it does often mean that existing page titles don't fit. I know there's an argument that page titles should be kept short but sometimes for good reason they need to be slightly longer than there is currently space for when the LO is viewed at 800 x 600 and a logo and help button is also used. I think an optional LO page title size property would accommodate this.

The question about enabling html would extend this further but I'm guessing there's probably a reason that can't be enabled and vaguely recall we may have discussed that previously.
