Cool stuff++

After spending 15 minutes writing up a node this morning, and then managing to blow it away by mis-advertently closing the wrong browser tab - (UGH!) - this has come just at the right time :)

One minor asthetic request - the "Format" menu items are obviously toggles. It would be nice to have them "ticked" (or not) as they've been applied.

And one minor annoyance - it seems to convert any linebreak into </p><p>. Wouldn't it be more appropriate (and intuitive) if it only started a new paragraph where there was a blank line separating blocks of text, and convert all other line breaks into <br>?


This is a line, with a linebreak And another line directly underneath # Converts to: <p>This is a line, with a linebreak<br> And another line directly underneath</p> # Where as: Blah blah some text and random pontification that goes on for a few li +nes. Then a new paragraph starts here... # Converts to: <p>Blah blah some text and random pontification that goes on for a few + lines.</p> <p>Then a new paragraph starts here...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
