Looks good. I look forward to studying it in more detail, but some initial


1 This is not the 'standard' Boost layout (though I don't seriaouly dislike

(And I note a massive amount of 'clutter' in the source from the html writer).

Makes assumptions about width, and so spaces oddly in places (is left and right
justified - ragged right is easier to read IMHO, despite what all the
self-styled web designers say!).

2 Spelling on section 3 heading "Output Manupulators"

3 doc links to boost example don't work directly which will annoy reviewers.

4 separator spelling? inbetween

5 boost::io::pairfmt spelling "alowing specialist "

6 Several examples don't use the monospaced for code.

7 I would imbed more of the crucial lines of code from the examples,
overcommented, as well as providing a link to the working example.

8 A 'how to' tutorial would also be invaluable.

| I have posted updates to the source to support state objects to support

| constant:
| I have moved the documentation over to XML, providing a HTML version of it.
| In doing this, I have made a few revisions and updates to it, including
| documentation for state objects.
| I feel the library is ready for review. Any comments?
