Technical Glossary / Page Set Specification
|This page is to development a syntax for the specification of pagesets. It should be possible to avoid the use of whitespace and other special characters (&, #, ...) to make the syntax able for the HTML-command-line.

If so, you might find & is a very good character to use to indicate special operations, since it is already used roughly that way. For example: Page1∧Page2 (written &and. The "∧" character can IIRC be translated by a browser to a standard symbol, or even a picture, provided you give it ample warning. Mine does it automatically. -- ChrisPurcell
