   37: <p><b>What is WP Documenter?</b></p>
   39: <p>WP Documenter stands for Web Page Documentor.  It is for web site developers and testers, but should be good as a learning tool for anyone wanting to easily see underlying CSS and javascript, and other HTML settings.  
   40: This extension will display in an easy to read table format to current exact status of a web page, including any data already entered in forms by the user.</p>
   42: <p>The idea for this came about that when a tester finds a problem with a web page, often it is difficult to pass along to the developers exactly what the problem was.  
   43: Quite often the developer needs to know the date, time, hidden fields, data entered, and more.
   44: And often the tester has no idea what all that information was.
   45: This can be used to store every piece of pertinent information on a web page into a formatted document that can be printed or stored.
   46: With it, all necessary data can be passed back to the developer, making his job easier.</p>
   48: <p>Of course, it can be used by developers as well.  You can use it to quickly see what styles are in use from any style page, view all data settings, and more.</p>
   50: <p>This is a work in progress, and any ideas on how to make it work better will be appreciated.  
   51: As will any help in coding this monster, as I am very new to this.</p>

   55: <p><b>Background</b></p>
   56: <p>This extension began as a little project to learn how to do macros with Firebird to fill in forms automatically.  (I found that there were extensions built to do that already.)
   57: But, from that idea, I have learned how to read, and then display web page data.  Then I saw how to format the data so only the important information (from a web page developer&rsquo;s perspective) was displayed in an easy to read format.   
   58: After that I decided why not learn how to add this functionality to the Firebird menu, and after that, build an interface so that the procedure could be customized.
   59: This lead to me learning how to work with XML &amp; XUL (quite the learning experience).
   60: Well this has grown and grown, so the next logical step is to make this available to all users.</p>
   62: <p>For the moment, you can check out the screenshots page.  I will be posting a few images there to give you an idea of how it works.</P>
   64: <p>Thanks,
   65: <br/>
