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

It is possible if its been malformed once (single step), multiple iterations can be impossible.

IIRC I think http://validator.w3.org/ can help ( Bundle::W3C::Validator )

As can these
HTML::Encoding - Determine the encoding of HTML/XML/XHTML documents
Encode::Detective - detect a data encoding
Encoding::FixLatin - takes mixed encoding input and produces UTF-8 output
Encode::DoubleEncodedUTF8 - Fix double encoded UTF-8 bytes to the correct one

But you ought to post some minimal html

I figure it ought to be as simple as parsing the file, decoding the entities, treating the string as octets and deciding what charset it is

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