in reply to Subtle Quirks

I just wanted to say that I think that colored "See Also" section at the bottom was probably the first font tweaking I've seen on this site that didn't make me look for the o-- button and msg vroom about removing FONT tags. Nice work!

    Thank you.

    I used a perl script called delirium to do that. It's a text filter that works on STDIN/STDOUT. It also uses HTML::Parser so it won't mess up your tags (just your content ;). I've put it up here at, and it's also in the CVS repository for Free Software at my werk. (Just hit the link below).

    Be glad that I didn't make the whole article delirious.

    Obviously written by a Sandman fan :)

    If I can suggest one small tweak that would make it look even more like the way that Delirium speaks, perhaps you could get it to add in <sup> and <sub> tags at random.

    print "Just another Gaiman fan\n";
