This archive contains Framemaker 9 source files, a PDF example, and some related files for the "Android User's Guide," version AUG-CC-220-100, which Google is releasing under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License:

This book documents Android 2.2 as implemented for the Google Nexus One phone. By releasing the sources to this book under the Creative Commons Attibution 3.0 License, we hope that a wide variety of OEMs and developers will find some or all of these chapters helpful when documenting their own implementations of Android 2.2. You should be able to remove irrelevant chapters, add your own chapters, and rewrite some or all of the chapters you keep, as a quicker way to document your Android implementation than by starting from scratch.

Keep these points in mind when working with these files:

  • These source files were created in Adobe Framemaker 9: you will need Frame and know how to use it to make use of these files. If Frame is not convenient for you, you can copy text from the PDF document or explore a utility for converting these files into other formats.
  • This book uses three fonts: GeneralGG, Droid Sans, and Expert Dingbats.
  • GeneralGG is available for purchase from Hoefler & Frere-Jones ( Helveticta is a good substitute if you don't want to buy or use GeneralGG, which is Google's standard sans-serif font.
  • Droid Sans and Expert Dingbats are included in the fonts directory: they are open source fonts. Droid Sans is used for screen text. Expert Dingbats is used for bullets.
  • All variables for the book are set in the file.
  • The hidden, conditional text "HTML" is used as part of Google's process for converting this book into Google Help Center doc format -- you can safely ignore it.
