( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
since the body of my discussion topic was lost to a bug that vroom says should now be fixed, i'll reproduce my original text here:

so, here's my idea: along the lines of the other custom markup provided on Perl Monks, like <CODE> and now <READMORE>, i propose that we be allowed the possibility of accessing the colors for the current theme as variables through some sort of extended HTML.

my initial idea was to use entities, for example &pm.bgcolor1;, &pm.fgcolor1;, &pm.bgcolor2;, or &pm.fgcolor2;. this is not the optimal solution, since the theme colors seem to be divided into primary and secondary sets which should ideally be kept together. but, without the site on the whole using CSS and doing something like <TABLE CLASS="pm_secondary">, i can't see how to do it.

the whole idea may simply be infeasible or simply too unwieldy, so i'm interested in getting some feedback.

    [choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
    [Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
    [Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
    [Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
    [LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
    [ambrus]: Corion: those are good rules.
    [ambrus]: Discipulus: oh sure. the input data has different filenames every time I get them.
    [ambrus]: the directory structure may be 1, 2, or 3 deep, it may have spaces in the filename or not, it has dates in various format, different keywords for the same meanings, and the dates and other keywords are assembled in various ways.
    [Discipulus]: no ambrus by specification i mean for example license per core instead of per socket, so fields are different
