Some new "Text" to add

Postby onepence » Sun Mar 12, 2006 5:15 am

Hi Jonah,

Thanks again for this amazing site.

Was wondering how difficult it would be to add a few more documents
or maybe a new section in the Library area.

Bahá'í International Community
Statemetn Library

http://www.bic-un.bahai.org/list.cfm

something like 188 documents

A Bahá'í Declaration of Human Obligations and Rights

http://www.bic-un.bahai.org/47-0200.htm

Presented to the first session of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.

Lake Success, NY, U.S.A.
February 1947


I
The source of human rights is the endowment of qualities, virtues and powers which God has bestowed upon mankind without discrimination of sex, race, creed or nation. To fulfill the possibilities of this divine endowment is the purpose of human existence.

//////////////////////

Women's Rights
Statement to the United Nations World Conference on Human Rights.

Agenda Item 11: Consideration of contemporary trends in and new challenges to the full realization of all human rights of women and men, including those of persons belonging to vulnerable groups

Vienna, Austria
14-25 June 1993

http://www.bic-un.bahai.org/93-0611.htm

////////////////////////////////////


anyway ... at least it something to think about trying to add to our library.

thanks in advance for looking into this issue.

Hi, Onepence.

Great idea! All we need is someone to do it. :-) If you want to, then <a href="/register.php">register</a>, I'll bump up your access, and you can begin uploading these documents one-by-one. Check first to see if we have them, though, I've got most of the more-important BCI statements.

Hi Dean,

Congratulations...Looks like you've uploaded it just fine, though Jonah can comment if anything needs to be changed or not...

That's a big help, thanks!

Jonah can speak to whether there are any pressing needs for the site...

Do you know or are you willing to learn some HTML/XHTML?

I know very little or actually none HTML/XHTML.

I am more a cut & paste type of guy.

My typing is a pityful two finger hunt & peck style.

My spelling is autrocious.

I do not think I would be very good at HTML coding unless some program will do it for me ... sad smile ...
