134 - Fix ImageDir and include one picture for example
135 - <Racke>I name three things that IC users often didn't acknowledge:
136 namespaces (CGI, Values, Scratch)
137 parsing order ([L], variables, lists) - interpolation
138 inventing syntax doesn't buy you anything
139 IC is _not_ a programming language
140 - how to delete item from cart in all possible ways
141 - give examples for the tasks in 'do yourself' section (in progress)

196 To add
197 Discuss profile.order verification options like 'zip=zip' and then explain why we don't actually use that one much unless it's for a U.S.-only store
198 Problems?
199 [on-match] gets used if search returned no results on an empty search string. Why?
200 Doubled-up CC verification errors:
201 No error message is given in [error] if required form variables weren't passed at all (vs. being simply empty)
202 No error message if profiles.order can't be found
204 Discuss using images (from old mvdocs):
205 A public Web directory for inline image graphic files is needed. Interchange does not serve the images, only the HTML tags calling them. A useful convention is to place all buttonbars, backgrounds, and icons in the /images directory, with the catalog items located in the /images/catalog directory. Regardless of the directory structure, an I<absolute path> must be used. Relative paths are unacceptable. Use the I<ImageDir> directive, which places that as the absolute path in front of all relative IMG and INPUT SRC, and BODY, TABLE, TR, TH, and TD BACKGROUND specifications.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
