## News about this project

I´m looking for a easier way to let the collaborators exchange the info, something like a shared spreadsheet throug Google Docs or something similar, because I think it´s quite frustrating editing the html code directely.The idea is:

* Collaborators edit the spreadsheet.

* Once the spreadsheet is updated export the info into html code

* Update SP with the html code exported from the spreadsheet

I´d like to know your opinions

*Thanks everybody for your help!!!!*

I was looking for a good way that let people just add information just

writing down into cell on a spreadsheet. Obviusly, human been like fresh air, clean water, flowers... but not edit a table contents on html code directly.

The good news is I think I have the tool to do the dirty work: using Google

Docs we can centralize into a unique file all the collaborations. Any of you just need to go into the

document using your web browser and simply edit the contents. :-D (it´s cool... and free!!!).

I have an account and a document on it. The only thing I need it´s your

email account. Then I´ll invite you to be a collaborator of the document and you´ll recive an email on your

box. Just click on the hyperlink you´ll find in the message and access the file.

Another great thing: if someone make a mistake or something we can go back,

because it records the versions of the document automatically.

Also, it lets exchange messages, so we can comunicate the rest of the

members about the new contents, ideas etc...

Later, with this file completed, we can just export into html, so 80% it´s

done.

Just let me solve any problems I´m having with table html on SP... then the

proccess will be clear, simple and easier then edit html code.

-----

**The spreadsheet on-line system using Google Docs is ready and running. All the people interested in collaborate with the page just send me a Private Message or email, adding a gmail account to give you access to the file**.

Portuguese and Polish languages are include in the shared database (the only GoogleDoc spreasheet) so new page with other languages will be ready soon.

Other languages help needed

Problems with GoogleDocs: we have exceed the cells limits of the on-line document

**Problem has been solved spliting the shared file in three files**
