icons and other manifest.xml tricks

rlauzon reported that it was possible to add new icons to the default set by altering the manifest.xml of the document. I am a bit puzzled because the pdf manifests do not show any reference to icons, so I hope we will have more info about this hack from the used that discovered it

Also, it has been reported by Herve that the manifestation processing (to build a folder with the original document plus a manifest) fails when the original filename is UPGRADE.txt. Funny but not random, I checked it. No idea about what happens for UPGRADE.pdf or UPGRADE.html.

The iRex Download/Docs page has a document called "How to make content for your iLiad" which covers the manifest.xml file and the icon.

Here's my manifest.xml file that I use for one of my PDFs. I usually use this as an example file for creating my other manfest.xml files:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<package>
    <metadata>
        <dc-metadata>
            <Title>BOFH 1</Title>
            <Description>Bastard Operator From Hell Vol 1</Description>
            <Date>2006-06-25T20:36:52</Date>
            <Format>pdf</Format>
            <Language>eng</Language>
            <Type>book</Type>
        </dc-metadata>
        <y-metadata>
            <FileSize>000</FileSize>
            <ItemSize>000</ItemSize>
            <startpage>BOFH 1.pdf</startpage>
            <version>000</version>
            <image>bofh.png</image>
        </y-metadata>
    </metadata>
<pdf><lastRead>414</lastRead></pdf></package>
The icon is simply the "<image>bofh.png</image>" line in the "<y-metadata>" block.

amusing how there are docs, of the iliad, that you can not download from the iliad ids neither nanigate towards them.
