Show Revised Content and Revision Information

You can show content that was deleted from a document with revision tracking enabled by setting the KVCFG_INCLREVISIONMARK parameter to True in the [KVHTMLConfig] section of the template file. When you enable this parameter, revision information (revision title, reviewer name, and revision date and time) for deletions and insertions of content display in a tooltip.

To reset the parameter and exclude deleted content and revision information from the HTML output, set the parameter to False. The default is False.

Format Revised Content

You can display revised content with a specified title and revision information. By default, the title is either the text string inserted: or deleted:, and it includes the reviewer name, and date and time.

You can also define a unique HTML style (such as, color: red; background: orange) to apply to the modifications for each reviewer. This allows you to easily differentiate between edits from multiple reviewers. For example, changes made by JSmith are highlighted in red, changes made by RBrown are highlighted in blue, and so on.

For example, you can configure View server to generate the following markup for inserted text:

<ins style="color: red" title="Inserted: JohnD, 2006-04-24Tl4:47:00" cite="mailto:JohnD" datetime="2006-04-24T14:47:00">This text was added</ins> in a previous version.

This text is displayed in the browser as:

This text was added in a previous version.

When you hover the cursor over the underlined text in the browser, the text "Inserted: JohnD, 2006-04-24Tl4:47:00" is displayed as a tooltip.
