in thread Making Perl Monks a better place for newbies (and others)

I detest, for the most part, any WYSIWYG html editor I've ever used. I would not propose that.

But paragraph breaks are so frequently used, I think it would be justified. I would not (edit: want to ) have to manually insert space between words with   either.

I think if there is a big key on the keyboard for it, (RETURN) why not use it.

The whole problem goes back to the 80's only because different computer makers had different implementations for "return". newline for Unix and newline-linefeed for windows.

If not for such incompatibuilities, we never would have needed HTML to bridge the divide.

    I take it you mean sentences; joining words with it makes for HTML display disasters. That’s bad style today and going back decades so affording it… If one wanted to attempt a more traditional approach, pedanticism demands   but then you should probably also be applying   or some other traditional typesetting non-\x{20} space for word separation.

    If not for such incompatibuilities, we never would have needed HTML to bridge the divide.

    That is an extremely odd thing to say…
