G'day atcroft,


++ I could not agree with this more.

Decades of experience have told me that "Things will never change" is the catch cry of the damned. It doesn't matter how much you attempt to advise management otherwise, you find them unmoved.

Here's a real world example. I started a new job and recommened moving from font to CSS; heard the "Things will never change"; and was told to stop rocking the boat and suggesting changes they couldn't afford. A few weeks later, their major sponsor changed their corporate colours. After a decision to slightly change their corporate colour, the 70,000 code changes required, versus my singular one CSS change, was a better solution.

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.
