Detail

If I write Some prose, and want to bold the 'n' in one, what happens?

If you select the 'n', then hit B, when you save, you get spaces between the 'o', 'n', 'e'.

This is clearly not what the user intended.

worse, if you hand hack in the html 'b' bold tag, next time around, TWiki removes it.

I was talking to Harlan the other day, and I wondered if we should write some code to convert all literal html to custom %TML% tags (that Wysiwyg can then round trip convert successfully - due to its knowledge..), so that they can be protected abstracted and managed automatically.

  • Set ENDB =

As you have discovered, TML makes for a pretty poor text processor.

However the WYSIWYG converter should not put spaces into one. It's not supposed to convert to TML unless it has a suitably positioned space.

Confirmed.

With regards to the hacking HTML tags to TML; so you want to extend TML to be a superset of HTML? Do you really want to do that? How do you plan to pass parameters to these tags?

-- CrawfordCurrie - 27 Aug 2008

I don't want to pass parameters, and I don't want to make it an important functionality - more a way to aggregate the literal html tag usages, abstract them, and help us developers and our users to identify which are common and should do with more support.

Fixed on trunk and 04x02 release branch. Any unusual effects with emphasis, let me know; it's all a bit delicate.
