( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
you may be interested in the miracles of XML and XSLT. O'reilly's has excellent books on both of them, and you can get the supa-fly peacock shirt in some cases.
Most people are familiar with an use XML as a data record format, but it can be used to create 'normal' documents, ala DocBook.
In the XSLT book, ISBN 0596000537, the author (Hi, Doug!) presents an incredible case study called the 'toot-o-matic' which takes a source XML document and produces :
  • Hierarchical HTML forms
  • Hyperlinked PDF files in a variety of print formats
  • Prepackaged Zip archives for offline storage
This is a heavyweight example, but the book provides excellent and thorough explanation of the XSLT syntax, and how to perform different manipulations on a single document.

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;
    ] &#93;

    [Your Mother]: Sounds right.
    [Corion]: Your Mother: I think that that is basically the origin story. Flat earth started as trolling, but then the real believers drove out the trolls
    LanX is pretty brown in summer
    [Your Mother]: Though a bad match for the OP in question here. :P
    [Corion]: Your Mother: Yeah
    [Your Mother]: Americans are still pumping out video games where you get to slaughter as many Germans as you have the GPU for... It has always struck me as odd that this particular case seems fine to people. :\
    [LanX]: yep heard the same origin story
    [Your Mother]: I like it. I tottered on going into hucksterism because I feel like the world deserves it.
    [LanX]: he ... we have a movement here called Anti-Germans based on this
    [Corion]: Your Mother: I think that's because (in the west) the Nazi-Germans are recognized as universally evil. Of course, you could do some number games to calculate other measures of evil than "historic losers of second world war" to come up with other evils:)
