README for VP8 Bitstream Guide
History (June 2010)
This document has had a very limited audience for most of its life.
As VP8 is now an open-source project, the document is expected to
undergo very significant change.
Format (September 2010)
The complete document is composed of individual text files for each
section, concatenated in filename order.
The text source is designed for transformation to HTML via Markdown [1],
and uses the syntax extensions supported by PHP Markdown Extra [2] as
implemented by kramdown [3].
kramdown 0.10.0 is the recommended text-to-HTML transformer. PDFs may be
generated one-off using PrinceXML [4].
The text source also includes some block-level and span-level MathML
expressions, written in ASCIIMathML syntax [5]. The standard delimiter
for ASCIIMathML expressions is the backtick (`), which unfortunately is
reserved by Markdown, so an alternate delimiter of double square
brackets (plus one space) is used:
This sentence includes a math expression, [[ sin^-1(x) ]],
delimited with double square brackets plus a one-space buffer.
