: Why XHTML Strict? It looks boring.
: XHTML Strict seperates content from design. You are not allowed to use any design components inside the xhtml file.

The design of XHTML documents is done with style sheets. You can easily write an own style sheet and customize the look of the exported chat.

: How to do?
: Download a sample style sheet at style.css.

Assuming you saved the stylesheet in the samew folder as the log file, you need to add the following line to the header of the html file:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />

Try out your own, it's fun to make one. :)


Caecilian is written in Java and requires the latest Java Runtime Environment to run. You don't need to install Caecilian, it runs from any directory.

Note that it creates a file called "config.txt" upon the first start. Don't have a file called like this in the same directory. It will be overwritten.


Caecilian is open source, but i decided not to included the sources in the download at the moment. If you like to have those, please send me a message.
