  • Are you saying ' and " must not be single octets anywhere in the text of HTML, but rather, that ' and " must be used? What part of the HTML spec did you get that from? In attribute values, yes, but in the text, there's no such requirement.
    • These are subtleties that I see no need to try to explain to people that resist even encoding . This is not a normative reference work, but a rule of thumb intended for an audience with a poor track record of understanding and accepting standards.

        "...even encoding < and > ."

        Apparently this is some strange new usage of "Plain Old Text" that I was not previously aware of.

        • Plain Old Text still allows HTML, but it takes care of newlines, and it's worked that way for years in Slash without too many complaints.

          We'd get a lot more if it worked as you wanted it to. You wanted Extrans. Which has a lame name. But oh well.
