Allowed HTML tags

by ysth (Canon)
on Nov 27, 2008 at 09:28 UTC ( #726352=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've added <abbr title="..."> to Perl Monks Approved HTML tags and (somewhat more reluctantly) PerlMonks Approved Chatter HTML Tags. Any suggestions for other HTML tags that would be harmless to allow? Please do a search before answering; revisiting old controversies would be pointless, as I'm only interested in the non-controversial.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Could we get a "bq" or "q" as an alias for "blockquote"?

      Definitely not "q", because "q" is a real html tag that's currently not allowed but only because the gods think it has poor browser support, so it might be reenabled again when everyone uses browsers that support even all the new HTML 5 tags.

        Well, <code> is a real HTML tag as well, and that didn't stop perlmonks from turning it into something different.

      I second this motion. It gets annoying to keep typing the whole word.

      I'm so adjective, I verb nouns!

      chomp; # nom nom nom

    Coming from the semantic markup school of thought, I'm rather partal to <cite> myself. .

    I agree, <bq> for <blockquote>. Also, is there any chance of disabling <pre> tags for newbies and anonymous?
