=== SPANPOINTER FORMAT
* spanpointer =
=== SPANPOINTER OPTIONS
# This replaces "acquisition"
=== FILE TYPE .xanadoc
# This consists of a list of contents to be assembled, in order, and a
list of xanalinks to be applied to that content, not necessariy in
order, as their individual applications to the content are independent
of one another.
# We should especially note xanalink type "pagebreak", as this
strongly affets the layout of the content.
* xanalink-address =
=== FILE TYPE .xanalink
=== FILE TYPE .xanaful
# This is a .TAR file whose first component file is a directory.
# The intention is to wrap up the content of a xanadoc and its
xanalinks into a transportable unit, except for content which is
expected to be aquired in individual forays by the clietn.
