( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

This is a nice option that would lower the barrier for newcomers.

I am not sure it is such a good idea though: usually if someone doesn't use the preview, doesn't see that their post doesn't look right and doesn't try to fix it, I see that as a sign that they do not really care about getting answers to their question(s). Or that they are just rude, "here is something that must be a question, figure out how to read it and then answer it, I have no time to loose following the obvious link to Writeup Formatting Tips". So why should we move the burden from them (to post properly) to the server (as the reload would increase its load)?

I haven't been a newby here in a while ;--) but really, is it that difficult to figure how to write a properly formated post? That's a real question BTW

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.
