Just another 0.02:

In Denmark there is no areacode. Phone numbers are just 8-digit numbers with a possible extension (no standard for that, format etc depends on the local switchboard). The number is traditionally formatted as dd dd dd dd, but even that has begun to vary: some people use 2 groups of 3 digits and a 2 digit group, others 2 groups of 4 digits!

Earlier you could figure out which phonecentral the number was attached to, but following (EU instigated?) rulechanges you can take your number with you when you move from one part of the country to another. Thus there is no areacode, or all of Denmark (including cellular phones!) is in the same area.

Things do vary.

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.
