  13. This document tries to give a suitable outline for Chalk's documentation. It
  14. is based on the Chalk manual in SVN (koffice/chalk/doc/manual/chalk.kwd) as of
  15. 2005-07-08, the KDE documentation template, and furthermore contains my own
  16. thoughts about what the documentation for a graphics application such as this
  17. should look like. Comments, suggestions, ideas etc. are more than welcome.
  18. Especially the real content still needs a lot of polishing.
