( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Woe is me, for this post seemeth off the topic, but by my troth, methinks I should at some stage publish a work titled "how thou shalt and shalt not use 'thou'". Such as in:

so thee canst reply with "XP doesn't matter" and gaineth thy 50 XP ;-)

...translateth into modern English as "... so to you can reply... and gains your 50 XP ;-)

Indeed, that kind of spellynge remindeth me of "He who slasheth the dot", a minstrel who is not well known for his accuracie in the writing of the English tongue...

So: some hints:

  • thou = "you" (nominative case) -> "Thou art a knave"
  • thee = "you" (accusative case) -> "I knight thee"
  • thy = "your" (possessive) -> "Thy computer crasheth"
  • ...th = The same as ...s for 3rd person singular.

May thy mind in future be clearer!

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