Cudos to the person who generated the Gradle HTML documentation!

I can see that part of it was done with xslthl.sourceforge.net but the soft fonts are excellent. How did they do it?

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the praise :slight_smile:

I’m not sure what you mean by soft fonts here.

What I mean by 'soft fonts" is that all your chapter titles , such as “16.7 Using the Sync task” are using a font that is fuzzy on the edges.

In any case, this is the nicest documentation that I have seen on any open source project.

Hands down.

Its easy to understand, simple, pretty, and very organized.

Thanks. I am therefore a huge fan of Gradle.

I would love to know how to reproduce this documentation style. I am envious of your skilz.

Ah, now I see what you mean.

It’s a very simple CSS rule:

h1, h2, h3, h4 {
  text-shadow: 0px 0px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);
}

Looks pretty decent on all modern browsers, except for IE :slight_smile:
