I guess that Netscape Communicator is usually installed in C:\Program

http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/extensions/help/resources/locale/en-US/mail_help.xhtml#2095

You can export an address book to one of these file formats: &brandShortName; 
(.ldif), tab-delimited (.tab), comma-separated (.csv), or text (.txt) formats.</p>

What is &brandShortName; (.ldif) format?

Reproducible: Always

Yes but &brandShortname; is an entity. So a vendor like Netscape will substitute
"Mozilla" with "Netscape" in
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpfe/global/resources/locale/en-US/brand.dtd.
Netscape users will then get the right path.

> What is &brandShortName; (.ldif) format?

If you're using Mozilla, that would be Mozilla (.ldif) format.

Please resolve as invalid if those were the errors you wanted to report.

Thanks

May be Netscape users will get right path, but Mozilla Suite users are got wrong
path.
Here comes cut&paste from Mozilla Suite Help:
-----------------------------------------------
Tip: Communicator address book files (pab.na2)
are stored in your user profile directory (for example, C:\Program
Files\Mozilla\Users, where \Users contains the user profiles
directories).
----------------------------------------------

LDIF is not format invented by Mozilla, I guess. Right now is sounds like
proprietary Mozilla format. I think that phrase should sound like:

You can export an address book to one of these file formats: LDIF 
(.ldif), tab-delimited (.tab), comma-separated (.csv), or text (.txt) formats

Aha, you mean that the path 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla\Users'is wrong (I'm on a
mac). Wouldn't this require a lot of different paths depending on what windows
version/log-in/not log-in a user has? Also, paths differ according to OS
(mac/win/*nix).

Makes sence, hmm we should probably explain LDIF in a simple way...

That's just example. On Windows Netscape are usually installed in C:\Program
Files\Netscape\. All that should be done is to replace C:\Program
Files\&brandShortName;\Users with C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users

I can make a patch, if you want.

OK, so the point is that for Netscape users the path is correct. But not for
mozilla users? Hmm, Ian - what do you think? I must say I would prefer that we
gave the correct Mozilla path and not the Netscape one... ;)

Perhaps the path can be made an entity? And somehow be created when
Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape is installed.

We could do that. Any distributor could then change the path. We still have the
problem that paths are different between platforms/systems, though.

Well, isn't there an option to make a platform specific entity?

Fix for a few errors.

Since this bug has been somewhat fixed (by removing nab2 import which is not available in SM), I will reuse this nice summary for fixing other bugs! :)
Included in the patch is also the fix for bug 314966: please forget about it, but check carefully the rest.

"selection" could go on the previous line here, r= with that change.

Very good, actually. It makes the docs for mailnews less uncomplete... ;)
