"improved" is a matter of opinion. You can't for instance use a line of code and highlight a section you want to focus because there's an implicit CDATA context inside.

BTW, in HTML, PRE is a blocklevel element, while CODE is an inline element, so they aren't quite interchangable, nor can you not prepend every CODE element with PRE.

IMO, it would have been better if Perlmonks just had C for code, and left the HTML CODE as is. But, IIRC, the C was introduced later as an alias for CODE.

    You can use <tt> to just mark some inline html as code. Inline perlmonks code tags actually emit <tt> tags to the html, not <code> tags.

    Hmm, I seem to recall PerlMonks used to treat inline <c> different from those in their own "paragraph" i.e; preceded by \n\n


    Oh, I see. Thanks tye ...glad to know I only misremembered reality rather than remembered fa +ntasy.

    In Bob We Trust, All Others Bring Data.

      If there are any newline(s) inside <c> or <code> tags, then the contents are rendered as a block. If no newlines are included, then it is rendered in-line. It has been that way "forever".

      The only change (made years ago) was that a newline directly after the opening tag is now ignored (other than that it still causes the contents to be rendered as a block).

      - tye

    Funny, you're under the impression that any of that matters
