( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
well I did the XML decision end of last year and since I only needed static HTML pages I wrote a little perl program (which you can find here if you are interested) that takes a whole XML tree, builds one large XML document from that and pushes it thru an XSLT stylesheet.

OK, adding new pages and auto-link them is very easy now (hmm, from the XML point of view, only: as a matter of fact my sysad has disabled ftp in our firewalls so I don't have to bear with our pages right now :-).
Changing the layout only involves _one_ document: the stylesheet. But that is really ugly. I have been cursing XSLT for weeks!

Another problem of _that_ time was that the XML::XSL perl modules were not complete. I dunno of the current situation (though I'd really like to put that into my script -> any volunteers? ;-). So I used saxon (which is written in Java which is just incredibly slow on my home machine).

A good source for me has been at with loads of examples for XML, XSL, XSLT, CSS, Perl, ....

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
