( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thanks, monks, that was most helpful.

Yes, chipmunk, I do need to pass the page thru my script (this is really just an example, the actual site to which I'm intending to send stuff is PayPal, which is set up in such a way as not to be able to cope with the concept of an item for sale having more than one attribute, such as (specifically) t-shirts, which come in a variation of sizes and colors... long story.

Thanks, repson, for providing a concrete example of what you and cm meant by a BASE tag. For having worked in HTML as long as I have, you'd think I'd remember that kind of thing, but that's the kind of detail I forget more often than I'd like to.

Thanks, merlyn; for the moment, since my script is only ever going to be hitting, the BASE tag is all I really need, but that's a really interesting article that I know will come in useful to me in the long run.

Again, thanks all,

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.
