( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

On a semi-related note, speaking of well-formed SGML, is there a good reason why the <readmore> tag appears in the HTML that's sent to the browser? The browser can't do anything with it directly, it makes it even harder for the page to validate, and it prevents tools like HTML-Tidy from processing the source until the <readmore> is manually removed.

While I understand that there are good reasons to be able to figure out where and if a page contains a <readmore>, why couldn't it be transformed to <!-- readmore --> before the HTML is sent to the browser?

Then again, I'm sure there's probably a good reason and I just can't think of/find it.

How do I love -d? Let me count the ways...

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.
