There's more than one way to do things

Lesson 2 was very good. Nice work, again.

I don't have CSS (cascading style sheets, right?) on my Netscape 3.0 (on IRIX 5.3) but it looked really good. No background colors, but the tabbing was perfect and the new little badges looked good.

Some minor things:
1) In Lesson 2 in the Why should you use section, I think you're missing a closing ) after "there is more than one way to do it."

2) In the Query string ignored on POSTs section, in the third line you have "The above code with detect..." and you probably want will instead of with.

3) In the second paragraph of the Exercise, you're missing the word "what" after "in case you need help remembering..."

Finally, having been around Perl Monks and read the Book Reviews, I know that Castro's book is horrible. But you never explicitly say it. You use bad code from the book, but someone may think that the book is another reference for CGI programming (which I guess it is, but you probably don't want to promote the book after you've spent all this time trying to teach us good habits). Again, thanks for all the work. It's looking great.

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