WagaWiki : Table / html code problem.

Post by paul_b » Sun 08.20.2006 4:54 am

First I should point out that this is not a problem with WagaWiki, just one table of content.

Knumon added a table of counters to the page I'd written. here. However the Japanese text had all been changed to &# 1234; style form which is
a darn pain when editing.

Now I didn't want to have to retype it so I did a little fiddling around and came
up with this that I think looks quite nice even if I do say so myself. The problem is that it is stuffed full of HTML Junk left over by MS Word. >_<;

Anybody know an easy way to tidy it up without losing the Japanese text? Or does anybody know an easy way to turn the Japanese &# 1234; stuff into normal unicode text (as used in the rest of the page)?

perl -pe 's/&#(\d+);/chr($1)/ge' < bad.wiki.txt > good.wiki.txt

also removed all of the totally evil microsloth stuff.

please, please, please... no microsloth stuff. no HTML Entities (&#dddd;) stuff.
it's horribly horribly evil.
it breaks the history diffs.
evil! evil! evil! evil!

nah, there was horrible evil microsloth stuff in the first edition with the HTML Entities.
full of {font} and {span} and {br} tags for every table element. using {b} and {i} instead of {th} tags, putting {p} tags around everything. ewwww gross.. :)

I'm terribly out of date on html, and never really used Wiki in the first place. :(

ここに便乗させてもらいます。m(_)m
wikiの時間管理はUTCを基準にしているのですよね。
だとすると署名の時間もUTCの方が分かりやすくありませんか?
今のままだとアメリカ東部時間とUTCが混在しているように思いますが、勘違いかな。。
