    I have often pondered the possibility of a flexible data-base stored set of historical events. They could be accessed via parameters such as date, place (at the nearest dated event), nationality perhaps and so forth. That would allow a mixture of facts to be displayed along the “Facts and events” timeline in much the same way as the current manually created histo.xx files.

    But I’ve never got further than the thoughts, and suspect there are a huge number of stumbling blocks in the way of making such a thing work in reality. For me, definitely this would be an extremely low priority. To be hones, although I have had a histo.xx file on my site for about 10 years I almost never think to look at it, and doubt any of my users are even aware it exists.
