Heck, there are even cross-platform compatibility issues if you stick to ASCII. Not all the world is ASCII.

Enough of the computer world supports ASCII that it's reasonable to use any printable character from the ASCII set. Platforms that don't use ASCII natively should have translation utilities for it by now, surely. Now, if you write code that changes case by adding and subtracting or similar schenanighans, then of course that's another matter, but just using a printable ASCII character is a fairly portable thing. (By "printable", I mean from decimal 32 up through decimal 126. The control characters are more likely causes of trouble.)

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
