in thread Wiki-Style syntax for posting

this is why I'd like to see the <l/> we're supposed to get one of these days

I personally believe you left me a little bit behind now: is <l/> a proposal of yours or an existing tag and if so, then in which markup language?

To put the matter in other terms, I would like to make it clear that I can happily and daily "survive" in the realms of *ML editing, but I'm far from being an expert in any of them, and really only use a well defined subset of all the available tags - incidentally and on a totally OT basis, the little I have seen of HTML 5 already makes me cherish it...

To bring the discussion back in topic wrt not only PerlMonks but even Perl itself, I wonder whether considerations of the kind of the one you're doing are being taken into account in the development of Perl 6's new POD and in particular if they make sense at all there, given that it's supposed to be a lightweight markup language - but even more so: if few concepts have to be supported in such a restricted environment, it's important that they are thought out very well.

    Well, I was sure the new <l>line</l> element (for line oriented stuff like code and verse) was a part of the HTML5 spec but I can't find it in there. I played around with using it by adding it to my own custom DTD about a year and a half ago but I can't remember where I picked the idea up; it wasn't mine. I'm very fond of it though. Beats the pants off of span'ing everything.
