I understand it's unorthodox syntax, but many parsers handle that. As I said, I know how to correct that. I'll try the trick with the font sometime... I also noted that [ LIST ] dis not indent that part of the post, but [ Li ] did, even though LIST seems to work elsewhere. The parser is just very, overly-picky it seems.
Another oddity I've noted is that a close tag can sometimes close two open tags. If you use bold and underline (or ) italic and underline, and close both, sometimes you end up with a hanging [ /i ], and when you remove the hanging tag, both formatting issues remain closed by one [ /u ] tag. it's just odd, and I was womdering if perhaps there was a patch or fix for whatever SW you're using that would fix this without breaking everything else.
I guess I can keep wishing.
As a side-curiosity, I need one person that can do a set of tie-in scripts using PHP, Perl and MySQL. What I need is a cart script in Perl that parses the database my catalogue uses and generates a cart form from it, using the fields already in place in the SQL database, and then to add a module for the SW that I use in PHP that toes into the script to place the add to cart button on each entry and adds a view/modify/checkout protocol.
One customer promised to do it for me, and I even gave him a huge discount on an order plus a couple-hundred in goodies to do it and he flaked. Do you know anyone that'd do this in trade for vintage hardware; and/or a cut of my sales via the cart (limited duration of 1-year preferred)? I can do some PHP stuff, but I'm not very SQL-oriented and I haven't touched Perl for two-versions or better. Beyond thst, I barely have time to breathe, and everyone wants on-line ordering.
If you know someone who.d be interested, please let me know. (Or if you, someone reading this, are interested, please P.M. me.) It would help out a lot for the people who can.t remember how to use a phone.
