→‎Adding Text: Using highlighting. Also brought the field description to xml format. I don't know if you like it but IMHO it's more readable
===Adding Text===
To add text to an application in the Homebrew Channel, do the following:
<ol># <li>Make a file in the folder of the application (e.g. apps/scummvm/) called "meta.xml" (e.g. apps/scummvm/meta.xml).</li># <li>Open "meta.xml" in Notepad and add the following text as a template:</li><codesource lang="xml">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<app version="1">
</codesource># <li>Add the appropriate information in between the relevant indicators. For example, the name of the application goes between '''<name> ''' and '''</name>'''. The purpose of each field is as follows:</li><source lang="xml"> <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?> *Name: <app version="1"> <name>The name of the application</name> *Coder: <coder>The name of the person or group that wrote the code for the program.</coder> *Version: <version>The version of the application.</version> *Release_date: <release_date>The data the application was released. It has to be a timestamp using this format: YYYYmmddHHMMSS</release_date> *Short_description: <short_description>This is displayed on the main menu of the Homebrew Channel (before you select an application) and is used as a space to add a few words to describe the program.</short_description> *Long_description: <long_description>This is displayed once the application is chosen. It describes the program and its function in great detail, and can be used to elaborate on a program's controls.</long_description> </app></source></ol>
An example of a completed "meta.xml" for ScummVM is provided below:
<codesource lang="xml">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<app version="1">
Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more.</long_description>
''A web application to create meta.xml files and code was made by abeisgreat, and is available here []''
