# 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.

=== 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.
