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

Great examples! ++

In the midst of a contractual dispute with Warner Bros. in 1993, he changed his stage name to the unpronounceable love symbol and was often referred to as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince (or TAFKAP)

-- from The late (mindbogglingly brilliant) musician Prince (wikipedia)

I find this stuff very entertaining for some reason. I remember being amused in the extreme by Prince's new unpronounceable name.

Since I don't have a list of references on this topic yet, I'll remedy that oversight here so as not to disappoint the LanX. :) Further suggestions welcome!

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.
