Re: Additions to Approved HTML ( ISO-8859-1)by Anonymous Monk

Hello and welcome monk, your concern/thoughtfulness is appreciated and is refreshing
perlmonks doesn't support unicode, so, um, yeah , it would be nice if it did but perlmonks faq doesn't unicode or utf8 or utf-8 it only latin1 or windows-1252 or something like that ) ; its encoding="ISO-8859-1" ie ISO-8859-1
These are all straightforward and simply represent attributes that are missing from certain elements but allowed elsewhere. I'm really just aiming for consistency here.
When is the last time you've seen "cite" used? Its one of those semantic-web ideas that are useless to humans that browsers don't display -- its library search engine stuff -- since the beginning of perlmonks there has been less than 30 uses of it (one by you, four since 2009 ), thats over 15 years
also a good 99.99% of nodes only ever use <p> and <code> tags
Also just consider dir, used to indicate the directionality of text -- latin1 is always one direction, so yeah Perlmonks uses the windows-1252 (similar to Latin-1) encoding ...
Sure theoretically perlmonks welcoms other languages and with entities they could be represented, but well, non-english postings are practically unicorns
Unknown Element: wbr
tye likes it http://mdn.beonex.com/en/HTML/Element/wbr.html and documentation is good (like a link or something)
However, I'd much rather see discussion and concensus before submitting any proposal; accordingly, please freely discuss the following and let's see if a concensus can be reached.
:) Wow such optimism, refreshing update: oh kcott user since 2010 , that explains it :P
I like you
