[00:15:50] <Bytram> FatPhil: Not at all sure what you are *trying* to create, so it's hard to follow along. If you could please type it into a plain old text file dump the hex chars (ASCII) of that, it would ensure I knew what you were doing / trying-to-do. Tx!
[00:16:10] <chromas> What is an extrans anyhow?
[00:16:26] <chromas> When I do a webby search, I get a website about transgender christians
[00:17:40] <Bytram> it's one of the formats for, IIRC, submitting a story. Basically some kind of kludge between HTML and PRE, but I doubt I ever did more than try it a couple times on /. and here.
[02:10:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, pretty sure you gotta escape < and > anywhere if you want it to not get eaten. possibly not in <ecode> tags
[02:14:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> frankly i'd like to get rid of extrans and just keep html, pot, and code
[02:14:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> then fix code
[02:14:57] <Bytram> that *does* sound desirable
[02:15:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> extrans means we have to detect what is and what isn't an html tag and that's fucking complicated and error prone.
[02:15:48] <Bytram> it has also been too long I've been awake with in adequate sleep to make any solid decisions, so I think I'm going to head me to bed.
[02:16:04] <Bytram> and subject to change without notice

[08:09:04] <FatPhil> I Was trying to draw the graphic here: https://soylentnews.org
[08:10:11] <FatPhil> I find extrans to be the mode that's the most useful to me generally, as it's close to WYSIWIG, but, as that graphic shows, it often falls short.
