I recently had some software written that used a python script to generate an output html file that displayed daily news feeds to remote users.
The file was self contained - all code was in the single file - included images, text and a bit of java that enable a More button to expand each story.
Only problem was that a lot of our users are on ships with no internet connection - only email.
The biggest problem was that a lot of them only have IE8 installed, and no chance of then updating.
So we need someone who can amend the html output templates to avoid use of java - if it can be done using html code - that will display and work correctly in all version of IE - and probably other older style browsers.
We also need to be able to amend one feature where they can print out the news - again using a java script. Unfortunately, this currently results in very large amount of paper for each edition - about 16-20 per edition. The corresponding size when the news was previously supplied in Word format was 6-7 pages.
So 2 small amendments to html templates required:
1. Correct any java features to avoid current problems with displaying in older browsers
2. Amend the was it prints out the news editions to printer to minimise paper use - and still look good.
Sample file attached to show existing edition that would need to have the template modified in order to correct the above problems.
There are 2 template files - [login to view URL] and sub.html. When the python script is run it creates the output file (attachment) as a complete html file.
Quick job for someone with html/java knowledge.
