-'''July 20 update by Samwise :'''  
-I changed the price for Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac, since the Standard, non-upgrade edition now costs $399.95 on the online Apple Store; Microsoft's suggested price is $399.00. 
-I changed the number of localizations, since the number of language packs has increased in OOo 2.x; I added a warning since dictionaries are no longer included in language packs, and explained how to get them. 
-I changed the OOo revision for, I chose 2.0.3 since all versions except 1 use a 2.0.3 codebase, feel free to change it to 2.0.2 if you think it's better. 
-I changed "runs on Intel-based Macs" from "No" to "Natively" for, since officially supported, qa'ed builds are now available. 
-I updated the "Notes" section of the Neo 2.0/OOo-X11 comparison with new information. 
-I also removed one of the two other comparisons, since it is no longer accessible (the page must have been removed from the server). Don't know what to do with the second one though, there is no version number which could tell whether it is up-to-date or not, and I don't understand German. 
-I think we should also update the section for OOo/X11's partial Finder integration; I believe OOo/X11 2..x doesn't use Start anymore, but some kind of AppleScript instead, has anyone got more info about this ? 
-P.S. Very sorry. I initially wrote this in the older (NeoOffice 1.2.2) feature comparison talk page. Stupid me.

Using Images instead YES/No?

I think the page could be more clear if we used images instead of YES/No. Like

I concur.


For just the YES/No items, right? I think it might look a little odd given that we intermingle YES/No and descriptive answers, but I'm willing to give it a try. Someone find some nice, acceptably-licensed graphics (green circle with a check, red circle with an x) and we can try it out :) Circles, not gears ;)

I will try to find/draw pictures ASAP and I will make a test page. val1984 04:29, 17 August 2006 (CDT)

Other improvements

I think I'd also like to see more obvious headings and alternating line colors like val1984's iPod Linux site. Does the site do it using the Wiki table syntax, and if so, can we do it easily *without* converting to Wiki tables?

(The Wiki table syntax is OK for small tables, but longer tables are harder to edit/follow that way; even if large tables aren't clearer in HTML--I think they are--the advantage of HTML is that you can edit it in any standard editor, even Neo, and gain readability.)

They are using the Wiki table syntax :

The background stuff looks like it is just a couple of style tags, nothing that only works easily in wikitable, so we should be able to port that to our table easily :) —sardisson 06:27, 17 August 2006 (CDT)

We might also think about using links for our * ** *** notes, sort of like how wikipedia does their footnotes. —sardisson 08:01, 17 August 2006 (CDT)

I agree :)

Is it possible to define stylesheets in the page? Because if we want to change the colors, we will have to find/replace every occurence of the color, it isn't handy :/
