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

I'm not ignorant to the Mac OSX community. They're certainly out there. And, until google ports it to Safari, they can use Firefox. It is deceitful and wrong to say sidewiki is not cross-browser -- as a terminology nazi you should know this. It ran on two browsers in the initial release!!! Just because it doesn't run on your closed-source proprietary browser of choice, doesn't mean it is "dead in the water." Granted, this may not be the end-all solution for the Mac OSX community, but that does not mean it is not solution. And, that doesn't mean it is not a better solution for all of the perl community than sidewiki. I don't want to use two cpans (ANNO/search.cpan), you don't want to use two browsers. Unfortunately, the downside to the sidewiki solution is people without the sidewiki toolbar, such as Safari users, have to continue with two browsers.

Where are the browser stats for perlmonks or cpan.org? Lets show up, we apparently require more data to determine if the costs (more work for OSX users), is worth the gain less work for Firefox/Explorer and soon Chrome users.

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