in thread Wiki-Style syntax for posting

I still think that, for newcomers asking simple questions, the HTML formatting gets in the way. But some default text inside the (still too narrow) input box would definitely help.

I hope this subject does not get simply forgotten. Small details like this one don't really help banish the widespread prejudice that Perl is an arcane language, full of inconvenient oddities all over the place.
