Bootstrap Template 0.10

{FAQtip Cover Page Customization:
   1. The material in braces, { ... }, is commentary and advice on how to customize the template to make a FAQtip.  The material can be deleted as the steps are carried out, leaving the customized folio page for further editing and expansion of folio content.
   2. This page is designed for customization using FrontPage.  It was created using Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 (11.6356.6408) SP1.  For additional settings and assumptions about the template itself, consult the template-usage documentation.}
   1. The template pages have been copied to the target location where a new FAQtip is desired.  E.g., a location at the same folder depth as the template, such as /faq/2000/01.
   2. The copied template pages have already been renamed with the identifier of the intended FAQtip, such as Q000101.htm, Q000101a.htm, etc.  Those are the pages in which these instructions are being read.
   3. An entry for the folio has been added to the FAQtip Catalog with the identifier for the folio as a bookmark.  The title of the folio has been chosen.  Look at existing entries for examples.  During initial preparation of the bootstrap version, "placeholder" is often used for the status.
   4. The full prototyping of a folio uses all of the pages Q000006.htm, Q000006a.htm-Q000006c.htm, Q000006c.txt, and Q000006c.zip.  Variations can omit Q000006a.htm and Q000006b.htm-Q000006c.zip independently.  If Q000006c.txt and Q000006c.zip are omitted, the references in the placeholder status section of Q000006c.htm must be repaired.  It is also possible to make independent use of Q000006.htm, Q000006a.htm, and Q000006c.htm (with or without Q000006c.txt and Q000006c.zip) in specialized customizations.}
{First Steps:
   1. Link the FAQtip Catalog entry for this folio to this page.  Link from the ID and the Summary Title fields of the catalog entry.
   2. Using the File | Properties ... dialog, change the HTML page title of this page to the correct ID and Summary Title (e.g., "Q000101: ODMA Compliance").
   3. In the title banner of this page, replace both occurrences of Q000006 with the ID of this project folio.  The hyperlink of the first one should be a relative link to the bookmark on the FAQtip Catalog page (e.g., "../../Q000001-log.htm#Q000101").  The hyperlink of the second one should be a shortcut to this page itself.
   4. In the upper-right corner (the anchor block) of the page, change the names of the links to reflect the path to this page (e.g., "ODMA>faq>templates>00>" becomes "ODMA>faq>2000>01>").  Note that the relative links don't change, just the text, since the new page is at the same depth in the site as the template page, and the self-relative path back to the root is identical.}
{Moving On:
   1. Go to the bottom of this page and continue with the customization of the page-construction history there.
   2. Return here after any other pages, especially any Diary & Job Jar, are also customized and in effect.}
{Customize: The text of the folio cover goes here.}
{Page-Construction History:
   1. In the lower right corner, the "construction-history block," change the created date and time to record the creation of this page (not the template).  Specify the current time-zone offset and time-zone symbol for the local time. 
   2. The material between currency symbols is updated automatically by source-code control software and need not be adjusted.
   3. In the version 0.00 entry, below, correct the date-and time and adjust the text as appropriate.  The absolute URLs to FAQtip Bootstrap materials can be replaced with relative URLs that apply in the target location of this page.
   4. If no job jar is being created in this folio, delete the mention in the version note.  If a job jar is being created, make sure that the link is to the correct job-jar page (e.g., Q000101a.htm)
   5. Customize the Construction Zone image to link to the nearest construction zone covering this material, if it is not at /faq.
{Next Page:
   1. It is usually preferable to set up any Diary & Job Jar page next, so that it can be put to use immediately.  In some cases (as was done in the example target, Q000101) the Diary & Job Jar will be done earlier simply so it is available for capturing notes as quickly as possible.
   2. The folio cover page (this page) and any Diary & Job Jar are sufficient scaffolding for bootstrap of further content.  Any additional pages need only be customized before they are linked to from other already-customized pages.  The progressive addition of content and customization of additional template-originated pages can develop as appropriate for the specific situation.}
