( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Demoronizer, tidy, and various other aps have been discussed here.

Scott7477 is just beginning work on a tut on this general topic (and I'm allegedly helping, though in fact, planetscape has -- IMO -- done most of that by pulling together a formidable collection of refs, cites, etc.) while I may be of little value other than word-butchery.

GrandFather has posted a WYSIWYG editor in CUFP which may be relevant and helpful. I could undoubtedly name many other relevant resources...


Were I in your shoes, I would not allow "cut&pasting" of M$word (so-called) .html under any circumstances... for the very good reasons you outline... and
perhaps even more important, would not allow use of any other than a very small subset of html tags for a whole range of taste-, security- and simplicity-reasons and just plain "old-fogey-ism."

On the other hand, the Monastery does provide minimally restrictive methods for a visitor to write some .html. Have you explored those methods?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
