( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, I need to test some HTML files if they contain the expected markup and I thought what if I gave an expected sub-html and then use something (e.g. HTML::TreeBuilder to check if the tree built up from the expected snippet matches some subtree of the received HTML. This should disregard white space where they are irrelevant and it would disregard the order of attributes inside a tag. So
<li>text more <a href="..." alt="name">anchor</a></li>
would be accepted even if it was written
<li> text more <a alt="name" href="...">anchor</a </li>
Is this a good idea? What problems will arise? Is there a module already doing something like this?

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.
