Sorry, but you seem to be contradicting yourself some in this thread.
Say something about the consideration already, not about the retitling after the fact.
Am I supposed to parse some difference between the two? I guess I don't follow Monastery lingo that closely. Overall though, I think it basically boils down to a difference in philophsy. I'm from the school that maintains that the only acceptable reason for changing content is to protect us from an imminent threat of anarchy. As I'm learning (I've only been here a little over a year) Perlmonks has a different set of values, one which prizes searchability over the author's intent. That's OK, I guess (variety, spice-of-life, all that). We'll have to agree to disagree. (Although I think Ye Olde Anonymous had the right of it). As an aside, I would have considered "HaXml" all by itself, with no body, to be a perfectly acceptable answer to the OP. (After all, I don't think most monks need to be spoonfed links from Google).

Anyhoo, I think I can speak for most of us when I say that this discussion is getting tedious and boring and unlikely to resolve anything. You can "consider" it my last word on the subject. ;-)

    In general, the words of the original poster inside the post are considered sacrosanct, their formatting less so, and the title still less so.
