( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Honorable sirs, forgive me if this question taxes thine time unnecessarily, for I am but an egg, but stumped.

A relative newbie to the site, I found the user information in my home node (that is the term for it?) an interesting way to keep track of things I had posted, and as a way to learn, by watching the responses to the same items from others.

A few days ago, I decided to be brave and look at posts in the Q&A section of the site. I responded to one answer already present, then found a posting which I felt brave enough to attempt an answer (or portion thereof). I was quite preplexed when the posting exists, but did not show up in my user search, and was wondering why this might be, or if perhaps I had somehow caused it to not appear.

This issue may have been asked before, but I was unable to find it if so. Therefore, sirs, I beseech thee, take pity on one so new and grant me a portion of wisdom and knowledge, or grant me direction that I might find the light to make clarity of my darkness and banish this confusion from me. What wisdom and knowledge you may choose to share with a new one such as I would be received with great appreciation.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
