Timeline Documentation (Call for Help)
We need your help to move the documentation from that static site over here so that more people can easily help complete and maintain it.
These will need to be well integrated into the Wiki, but first step is to migrate from the static documentation.

- The Historical Event Markup and Linking Project  generates SVG timelines, maps and animated maps from documents conforming to its XML markup language for historical events. The markup language, defined in XML Schemas , associates events with persons, locations, and keywords, employs multiple calendrical schemes and is multilingual. There is a Heml xhtml language available, too. The project's past five years of development are recorded in its SVN server . RDF/Heml ideas were presented at the WWW2006 conference .
- LongView, a project of the The Long Now Foundation, is a server side python script for generating HTML timelines from simple datafiles of comma separated values. It requires Python version 2.3. For generating its graphical elements, LongView also depends on the python GD module, which itself depends on Thomas Boutell's GD library (linked to from the python GD module home page). Biotechnology Milestones 08000BC - 02022 is an example of LongView in use. Detailed instructions for installation and use are to be found at http://www.longnow.org/about/LongViewReadMe.php.
