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

I like the idea at least "in general". It would be good to discourage the casual editing of already-posted nodes. I fairly often navigate (to a parent node, to a domain where I don't have a cookie, etc.) just to get rid of the edit box because it gets in my way when reading.

Note that we should also mitigate duplicate posting, however. When we have previously had node types with an "edit" link and no textbox, those node types had a higher rate of people not noticing the "edit" link and eventually figuring out that the brower's "Back" button made an textbox appear.

Title:
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;
