in reply to New hints....

ar0n made a patch to clean up the HTML to be in line with our desire to be XHTML clean. This includes putting the tags in lower case. Unfortunately, the small font makes <tt> harder to read than <TT> so I dropped the <s and >s and then decided to save some space, giving this:

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following: a, b, big, blockquote, br, code, dd, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, li, nbsp, ol, p, pre, small, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, td, th, tr, tt, u, ul
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.

Note also that the list of tags is now pulled from the official list so it will automatically stay in sync with what is really allowed.

Feedback welcome.

    Nice. And thanks for redoing the patch. I fully admit it was quick and dirty, I much prefer the way guys did it. Although I admit that I regret the loss of the <'s and >s if only because I wanted to be able to cut and paste them... But not great loss.

    Once again nice fix. I had no idea it was that easy to dynamically get the list of tags.
