> FWIW, I didn't try dealing with header nesting because a lot of the HTML to be processed was very poorly written. If I had, the TOC would have looked haphazard.

actually I don't know yet how to deal best with wrong nesting.

E.g a h6 following a h4 would be ignored now (or added to the last h5 which is nonsense*)

I don't know if it's better to

  • include the missing intermediate levels
Or
  • ignore the heading
A warning should be emitted anyway.

Another nice to have would be to parse already available anchors, to allow multiple runs.

Again the problem arises if a new anchor should be generated or the last one taken.

I think all of this should be configurable, but so many options make this already a candidate for a proper module. ...

*) actually this explains weird problems I saw with latex beamer and wrong nesting. .. cool insight into alien code.

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.
