After lots of procrastination we now have online documentation for RSS Bandit. As usual, The current table of contents is just a place holder and the real content is Phil Haack's Getting Started with RSS Bandit.

I'm an Rss Bandit user and I think the docs are fantastic! Written by a true documentation genius. ;)

But what's with the  characters all over the doc? I'll have to look at that.

The  characters are a bug that was fixed in CVS but Torsten hasn't propagated the change yet. By the way, what's your SourceForge account info?

Can you put in a chapter outlining keyboard shortcuts?

My username is haacked (I also replied to your email). I may write a quick reference for the keyboard shortcuts. That's a great idea.
