Re: FIXME in Lesson 5[edit]

The first FIXME (the part about adjectives in is, is, e) was not a mistake - it's referring to adjectives like e.g. turpis, which ends in is in the masculine and feminine (is, is) and e in the neuter: turpis, turpis, turpe.

The second one doesn't actually point to a footnote. Asterisks before words indicate that they are either "of modern origin, or applied to a modern object". I've been linking the asterisks to the abbreviations page. Nikolaos (talk) 03:43, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

CSS and Javascript[edit]

{{helpme}} How do I include my own stylesheet? Also, what about javascript so that it runs on a page not only for me but for everybody who is viewing the page?

Lesson 9[edit]

See if you understand it better than me.

  1. On page 30 there's a * next to 'ipsīus', but no foot reference and it's not a neologism this time :)
  2. Page 31 starts with "b) a variety ...", but where is "a)"? Strange.

Otherwise I'm done with 9.

Looks like the document you're using is missing the last part of page 30, which resolves both of these. I'll get to these after I run to town. Nikolaos (talk) 23:19, 17 January 2012 (UTC)


Do you think we should group dictatae just like in the textbook? Right now, I've been creating a dictata page for each one. I'm kind of leaning toward several on one page. In that case the URL will be something like Dictata_10_11_12_13. Let me know.

== Script ==

echo "<table class='wikitable' style='background-color:#dcdcdc'>"
sed -e "s/^\(Nom\|Gen\|Dat\|\|Acc\|Voc\|Abl\)\./'''\1.'''/g" | sed -e 's/@/<br\/>/g' | sed -e 's/\t/^/g' | while read LINE; do
  echo "<tr>"
  for word in $LINE; do
    echo "<td>$word</td>";
  echo "</tr>"
echo "</table>"

I don't know if you'll find this useful. I found myself creating tables too many times. So... If in vim you type a series of lines of the form:


Then if you do a visual select in Vim, press ! and then enter the path the script, it will return an HTML table. If the first column is case names, it will put the triple wiki quotes around them. The @ signs will be replaced by br's. Saved me some time.

I might look into using that script. I haven't used Vim in some time, though :P As to the question - I don't know how I feel about that. It would make it difficult for people who, like myself, simply change the URL manually rather than looking for a link in the table of contents. Nikolaos (talk) 20:29, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
