( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have a form that is filled out without regard to special characters. This means that quotation marks, slashes, and many other characters which raise hell with HTML and CGI's will be typed in.

This information will be used both to return a HTML page with another form (including HIDDEN INPUTS where the quotation marks raise problems) and to generate a plain text email. Then the form will be submitted and an HTML page will be generated which requires the quotation marks to appear again.

I have no problem dealing with returns and paragraphs, but was wondering if there is a module that will handle all possible input characters that would cause problems (especially quotation marks) when generating HTML from the input.


In reply to Form Entry to HTML and Plain text by belize

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.
