If you like, you may enter your location here. Whatever you enter here is displayed at the top of your home node with some other information about you. If you don't enter anything, your home node will show n/a for location.
Note: This field accepts HTML, but is not processed for PerlMonks markup; so, for example, shortcuts are not converted into links.
Your bio can contain anything you want it to: Information about you, information about your grandmother, your favorite links, helpful tips for making tomato soup. You enter this information as HTML text. See Writeup Formatting Tips and Perl Monks Approved HTML tags for more information about what you can enter here.
Other sites which use HTML comments (<!-- location:latitude:DD.MM.SS,longitude:-DD.MM.SS -->) entered into your Bio to display information about Monks include:
These sites replace jcwren's Monk Maps and Big Monk Map, as described in Put yourself on the Monk Map, (jcwren) RE: Monks' Maps!, and More useless Monk Stats, but use HTML comments in exactly the same way to get your location. See PMplanet for formatting details.
WH2FO is a Java application that processes an HTML output, created with Word 2000, and transforms it into an XML content file and an XSL stylesheet file. From these files, a standard XSLT processor may be used to obtain a file containing only XSL-FO markup. You can also apply a stylesheet that converts the XML back into HTML discarding all the extra markup added by Word. Using an XSL-FO renderer, such as FOP, you can also render your document into PDF.
OpenOffice.org - free office suite and MSOffice alternative
Use OpenOffice to save in HTML format. OpenOffice creates much cleaner HTML, and the resulting file may still be run through HTML Tidy or a script such as hstrip.pl.
There may well be more resources out there, but this list should get you started. I suggest examining each alternative's usage, sample (short) input and output, and a breakdown of the pros and cons...
