xdvi tipsEdit

Hi Corentin. I'm really glad you've merged VimTip361 to VimTip225. I know nothing about that stuff, however I made quite a few style changes to tip 225. I believe that I did not change any substantive content. Please let me know (reply here) if you're not happy with anything, or if there is something you want to discuss. --JohnBeckett 00:32, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

It's very pleasant to be welcomed that way, I don't know if it's the right way to answer you (I'm new on this kind of wiki). As I'm not a native english speaker, I'm grateful to any corrections.
I also think it would be a good thing to change the title of tip 225 from:
Vim can interact with xdvi
Vim can interact with xdvi or kdvi

Many people would reply exactly as you did (with a new message on my talk page). However, it is the custom here to keep all the messages on one page, so I have copied your reply to the above, and I'm replying here.
I have also used the : indent method of replying (one colon for some indent, and two colons for more indent, etc). An alternative we often use, is to separate messages with a line consisting of ---- which creates a horizontal rule. As you can see, any encouragement will cause me to get very verbose, so if you want any further information, please say so.
It's easy to change the title of a tip (see "To move a page" at bottom of the title guidelines), but let's think about it a little more first. In general, I would prefer to omit the word "Vim" because all our tips could use that word. I'll think some more about this tomorrow. What about "Interacting with xdvi or kdvi"? Is there a better word than "interacting"?
If you can help some more, perhaps I could suggest some rephrasing of the wording in VimTip225 and you could check its technical accuracy. --JohnBeckett 09:51, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Probably something like "easing shift forward and backward from latex document to dvi file" would be better Corentin.barbu 10:52, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
