Dear Mathematica-Users,

I'm proud to be finally able to announce the first release of my CSSSave`

background colors, (Cell)Frames, Spacings etc. This is made possible by a
technology called "Cascading Style Sheets" (short CSS, thus the name of the

which are converted to a separate notebook will have a link to the main page
at the bottom, and links to such subgroups can be either the traditional way
(as it is right now) or by a Mathematica-style triangle to open a cell
group. Of course all of these options can easily be adjusted to your

Using my package is so simple: Download it, install it (with an installer
written in Mathematica) and load it (just execute Get["CSSSave`"]; ).
All the notebooks that you convert to HTML afterwards will also have
backgrounds, frames and spacings converted ...

I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your comments,
Reinhold Kainhofer

PS: The latest version of the package with bugs fixed etc. will always be
available via ftp from my personal computer. This computer, however, will be

you still want to try to download it from there, just ftp to and login as "CSSSave" and your email address as
