Off-topic: I'm not sure I understand your comments re: &gt;. The <code> and <c> tags aren't "HTML"; they quote all their contents so they'll appear as-is, until the next </code> or </c> respectively, so you can just paste code without worrying about markup.

Note that <pre> does not get the same special treatment.

    Oh..was afraid of that...since  'code'   is an HTML keyword like 'p'...

    , I used an extension where it says 'edit in a write area', that composes in HTML and writes the result.  It works with most sites that take HTML, but I guess it doesn't work here because perlmonks has redefined the 'code' keyword to behave differently than the standard specifies?  Urg...how...'unstandard'  ;-)

    I wonder how much of a bother it would be to use a keyword that ISN'T defined in HTML so we wouldn't be redefining the standard?  Just a thought.

      I use the <c> tag.
