in thread bivnn.cgi -- an alternate interface to newest nodes

Odd that you should say that. The output from xNN and reputer is no smaller than the output of Perlmonks itself, plus, you have the source to make it bigger, which is not as easily accomplished here. (But you're right, I too dislike pages that use a blanket <font size="-1"></font>).

Could you elaborate on form inputs used as display elements? All the form elements I can get my hands on have a function, but I could be missing something.

    (I swear I responded to this, but that response seems to have gone missing-- maybe I previewed without submit.)

    My bad. I was looking at the reputer demo on Konq 2.2.1. Under IE 5.5 (here at work) it looks a lot better. The xNN demo also looks quite nice on IE 5.5, but I suspect it is also going to have problems on Konq (I'll have to check it when I get home). But the fact that the pages change fairly dramatically between clients is exactly why blakem's plain old CGI-generated HTML is so great. It looked the same on both IE5.5 and Konq 2.2.1-- a big win in my book.

    The form elements was talking about really do serve a purpose. They just don't do it on the demo page, so my apologies to epoptai for that unfair criticism.

[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
[jdporter]: A: yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know how hard it will be to get out of that mess.
[LanX]: M-x untabify
[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
LanX thinks it is appropriate here :)
[Your Mother]: They would think so.
