The page http://logback.qos.ch/manual/joran.html no longer exists. It
was split into configuration.html and onJoran.html eons ago. If you
try to access joran.html on the web site, you should now be redirected
to onJoran.html.

In any case, examples with FileAppender (or derived classes) using
<layout> without an enclosing <encoder> should me modified to use

No reason at all. The page in question, i.e. joran.html, was stale.
