I would personnally set normal-text and english-text to 0026 builtin (to view READMEs) but c++, h, java, ... to my editor. 0027 0028 And one that doesn't like embedded viewers (like Martin ;)) can set 0029 defaults to 'no' without having to change all mimetypes (text, c, c++, ...) 0030 but still use libkhtml for HTML pages, by setting 'use builtin' in the 0031 mimetype text/html - this is the way to keep the exact (though 0032 inconsistent) behaviour of 1.1-kfm. 0033 0034 I suggest that factory defaults (i.e. configuration for first-time users) 0035 would be set to 'yes' for the three groups (-> use builtin) 0036 and would be 'use default' for mimetypes. 0037 This for speed reasons (embedded viewers are really fast) and also to show 0038 the new features ;) 0039 KOffice mimetypes have it set to no, though -> click edits. 0040 0041 Implemented on 09-04-2000 0042 David FAURE <firstname.lastname@example.org> 0043
