Hello, everybody!
Hello, Lee!

I have started to create a TOC for the Handbook in order to make a
MonoDoc provider possible.
I have choosen the Microsoft Html Help TOC format, that is some kind of
MS Html, but also valid Xml.

The file is in cvs in /monkeyguide/Documentation.xml

- Any further changes in the Handbook Html TOC must also be made in
- We can create Windows Help Files now as shown in the screenshot below.

You can download a compiled Windows help file here:

- Someone needs to write a provider for Monodoc (Miguel told me Lee
Mallabone would be interested in doing that).

The format is like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Johannes Roith (manually) :P " />
<!-- Sitemap 1.0 -->
<object type="text/site properties">
	<param name="Auto Generated" value="No" />
	<li> <object type="text/sitemap">
		<param name="Name" value="The Mono Handbook" />
		<param name="Local" value="html/en/index.html" />

		<li> <object type="text/sitemap">
			<param name="Name" value="Preface" />
			<param name="Local" value="html/en/preface.html"


This should be rendered in a treeview like shown here:


It should be possible to parse with the Mono Xml parser.
