Thanks. That mark-up is actually accessible from my WAP phone (the original cblast35 confused the HTML-to-WML gateway with the unnamed textarea form fields) and is easier to read (I never have to scroll an individual chunk of text).

Update: Please don't use MM/DD/YY format for dates. It is pretty confusing in many regions of the world. YYYY-MM-DD is the international standard for good reason.

    I have also experienced problems with WAP phones (I am using google's HTML->WML gateway) when surfing sites built on everything engine. It is not that bad living without perlmonks on my mobile phone, but not being able to access is really sad.

      Google's HTML-to-WML gateway pretty much throws away anything inside of a <form> (since they don't support the filling in and submitting of forms, I guess they consider hiding all of the text of the form to be "helpful" in preventing "confusion", *sigh*).

      This is why surfing PerlMonks as AnonyMonk no longer generates an empty <form> that would be used for voting (and perhaps updating text) for a non-anonymous user. This change allows you to read the content of most PerlMonks nodes via Google's HTML-to-WML gateway.

      blakem's version of CbLast includes a <form> that appears to have no purpose and that causes Google to render it in WML as little more than showing the time (no chatter is visible).

      I'll ask blakem to remove the <form> and provide the source code to his script so perhaps Chady can switch over to it as well.
