Made this page as a scratchpad to test some markup which seems broken. Actually, I think I'll do it on the StructuredText page.

OK, I'll try on long/ugly test here.

This refers to a [12] for an in-page link reference.

Different test - getting nested hrefs. This is a test by BillSeitz to see what happens when you have a WikiName in the middle of a quoted-href-label phrase. Result: if you ViewSource?, you'll see that there is a pair of nested hrefs, which is not valid HTML.


Here's a URL which won't get rendered properly because it has a semi-colon in it. http://www.kuro5hin.org/?op=displaystory;sid=2002/2/2/14302/91040 and here it is behind a label

testing breakage of Userland links --BillSeitz, 2003/06/28 18:00 GMT reply
Excellent discussion on HackThePlanet? about building a$7057?mode=day PersonalWebArchive?. AaronSwartz points to$7073?mode=day his Python-based "Archiver Proxy", and a ZoPe product call zzKnowMan. DaveMcCusker? points to some of the potential complexities$7070?mode=day , especially if your tool builds a search-index in addition to just saving copies, and notes his understanding of the BuyBuildAvoid? concept: At work, I often have the opportunity to consider using an index to make something sophisticated work. We resist doing this every time, however, because I explain it will be hard to cope in any reasonable low latency time when (not if) corruption occurs. So we avoid the effects of entropy partly by avoiding the maintenance of systems we don't want to process when corrupt. (Things that don't exist don't get corrupt, and don't cost any time to create either.

testing line starting with number --BillSeitz, Mon, 25 Aug 2003 17:07:31 +0000 reply
should generate numbered list if line starts with 0. like

  1. first entry

but shouldn't do it for just any line starting with a digit like

  1. Cherryhouse Lane

actually that's the StructuredText standard --BillSeitz, Mon, 25 Aug 2003 17:12:25 +0000 reply
went back to everything resembling a spec document: lines starting with a string of digits (and possibly interspersed periods) followed by whitespace get turned into ordered list. how lame

Annoying, isn't it. Perhaps we should add a workaround to stxToHtml.

This is on my list of "annoyances" which I intend to look at more deeply now that I've got my own (not shared) computer. :-) I like numbered lists, even out of order, and wasn't sure if it was HTML or STX that forced the numbers to be re-ordered. But I'm not sure what common behavior should be.

Would you mind describing in detail how you expect this should work?

Well, originally I thought that starting a line with #. or just # made sense, since that's a number sign

and if you want nested lists with full sequences of numbers (2.3.1) then use a sequence for the level like #.#.#.

but if we want to leave # to be usable for unordered lists, then how about just using 0 (or 0.) (for showing all levels of hierarchy, use 0.0.0)?

sigh, I don't even remember the HTML rules for stuff like this so some of the above might be stupid.
