Dear all,

* Exporting text before the first heading ?

  It seems that text before the first heading is not exported.  Using
  #+TEXT: might help, but #+TEXT: does not understand links.  Is that
  intentional ?

I guess this is not very well though-out, and maybe it would be good
to simply export the text before the first heading.
That TEXT is not HTML processed I would also consider as
a bug, but I know that some have made clever use of this bug
to insert custom HTML into a file.  This is now no loger
necessary since you can embed protected HTML with special commands.

Note that the #+HTML: and #+BEGIN_HTML...#+END_HTML directives are not (yet) a replacement for inserting literal html as it can be done using #+TEXT:. As far as I've noticed, #+TEXT: inserts html (or any other text) before the first heading (before the <h2> in the resulting html file), something the #+HTML directives can't do, since the effect of placing it before the first heading is null, as it is not exported.

I don't expect to use Org as a full-featured publishing engine. Still, the following example represents a very specific use of #+TEXT: that I need for implementing file-specific site navigation (as opposed to project-specific, which in this case is configured using :preamble in `org-publish-project-alist'). These are the relevant lines in the org file:

#+TEXT: @</p>@<p class="marginpar">@<a href="intro.html">Return to introduction@</a>@<p>
  * Sonata for Unaccompanied Achilles
    ^ will be exported as <h2> after <p class="marginpar">...

AFAIK, I can't use #+HTML: to insert that snippet before the <h2>, or first level 'org' heading, which is what I need.

Hmmm, not clear to me how exactly this should be done.  Should we
cast a vote for exporting text before the first heading?

This is my idea: if the text before the first heading were exported and that included the #+HTML: directives, it would be one way (out of perhaps a handful) to avoid having to use the #+HTML: and #+TEXT: directives for the same purpose -- exporting literal html. In the end, for literal html we'd just use #+HTML: anywhere in the file, while #+TEXT: could be reserved for a different purpose.

Vote: +1

But the final decision should consider other (broader) aspects...

Kind regards.
