in thread Site HTML filtering, Phase II
If you give me a list of tags, and where you think they should be allowed, I'll look at them. Can't promise more, I'm rather busy at present.
Please don't feel like there's any urgency here.
I didn't mean to be complaining. These are actually
quite small annoyances. Still there are some
entities that I do occasionally miss being able to
and/or <acronym title="FOO">Foreign

being silly with this one, since we can still
use traditional "quote marks".
deleted text. This is semantically
pretty much the same as
that <strike> is deprecated and <del>
maybe I'm being silly with this one. (Sometimes
it's hard for me to tell when I'm being silly or
not about things like this.) If <del>
were supported, it would make sense to also
support , as they seem
to go together.
- It's tempting in some ways to add
<style> to the list,
but I can think of N ways in which it could
be abused, so it's probably best left out.
<cite> happens to be the one
I've used most often, forgetting that it wasn't
permitted, though <abbr> when I do miss
it is somewhat more bothersome.
As far as where they should be allowed, I'm not sure
I understand the inner workings of the site well enough
to say, other than that it's usually in an ordinary
node body (such as either a root node or reply in
SOPW, obfuscation, Meditations, ... you know, a
regular node). I don't recall ever missing the
ability to use any of these tags in a node title.
Hmmm... in the chatterbox maybe though.
