    Ok, to be fair it only stayed on that step for about a second, and I was prepared to take a screenshot just in case it would.

    Edit: Hmm, how do you insert line breaks here?


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

     I've been considering giving 2010 a shot - how is it?

    <p></p>, <br>, or use the wysiwyg editor (i.e. disable NoScript).



  • Weng: I only use it for C++, so the one thing I can say is that the new Intellisense is good. It underlines errors with red squiggles now, just like the ones you get when writing in .NET languages. It's still rough around the edges - takes a lot of time to convert large C++ projects and locks up for about a minute if I try to get a Ctrl+Space suggestion.

    derula: I don't see a WYSIWYG editor in neither Opera nor Chrome... I didn't think to try HTML tags because using [img] tags to insert images worked, so I expected something bbcode-ish.

    The best WTF in that is the following: Say you type the following in the wysiwyg editor:



    [quote]

    bla

    [/quote]



    TinyMCE will replace it with:



    <p>[quote]</p>

    <p>bla</p>

    <p>[/quote]</p>



    And the HTML sent to the browser will be something like:



    <p><blockquote></p>

    <p>bla</p>

    <p></blockquote></p>



    Very clever...



  • When it's stated that 'the forum software is the WTF', what do you expect? ^_^

    I wasn't aware of the horrible tag soup issue though. That does go a long way to explaining some of the formatting / layout explosions I've seen happen.

    I don't see one in Lynx, either!



  •  Maybe it's downloading an episode of ReBoot.

    Does InteliSense finally resolve templates properly ?

    It's so bad that Hixie's Java HTML 5 parser, designed to work with tag soup, explodes in a shower of bits.
