in reply to Perl HTML confusion...

<\a> and <\div>

You are making me dizzy... now, you might not have noticed while typing too fast: slashes in closing xml and html elements go all forward, like this: /

the character sequences \a and \d may have funny side effects on stone age terminals... the first one usually rings a bell.

    Actually, I was simply trying to find a way to type those tags, without the form thinking I was trying to type PerlMonks-approved HTML into it. Sorry for the confusion!
      Ah, for that I go old school:

      &lt;a&gt; yields <a>, for example.

        whereas I recently updated to <c>-tags as in <c>\a</c> and <c>\d</c>: \a and \d

        Cheers, Sören
