( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is the classic case, and I have and have seen many such needs. For text-based stuff as you describe, it's fairly straightforward. One of the groty issues we've run into with all available solutions, however, is that images (logos, etc.) from the web page get re-interpolated and this just makes them look like the dog barfed. Since there are very few pages any more without some graphics, this becomes a more pressing issue. I think converting is more important than manual formatting, but maybe I'm biased because we run into this all the time.

As to XML versus CSS versus a little language, I think that if it "just works" for the primary use case, any extra that I/we have to learn in any format is not too much to ask.

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.
