This tool has been evolving over the course of several years. Every time I encounter some weirdness that breaks it, I've enhanced it. I recently rewrote it from scratch to incorporate everything I learned along the way. Offhand I can't tell you that there is a single site that has all the weirdness in my "broken on purpose" example, however, I can tell you that I've encountered websites that have mixed things up in ways that they were never intended. At this point, I think my tool handles everything I've ever encountered and is ready for anything that I haven't yet encountered. Even if you've only encountered well-behaved websites, there still is way to tell Perl to give you the sixth UTF-8 character from a string as in the "$snowman" example.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;

    [Corion]: marto: Maybe it opens offscreen? I wouldn't know an easy way to confirm that, except maybe closing the chromeless window and then looking whether iexplore.exe is still running
    [marto]: nah, it's not off screen
