Yes, and can you please stop asking that question? I read it several times, and you're starting to get just this side of insulting. If I got something wrong, fine, say so. Stop trying to dismiss everything else I've said by suggesting that I'm completely uninformed. > There is simply no mention > of `[=...]` as a markup option, which makes me wonder where you > got it from? I got it from that document.... or so I thought. Since it's now deleted, I'm no longer sure. Having a reference again would be nice. It's hard to have a conversation about a document that does not exist. Ok, that said PLEASE DO NOT USE UNBALANCED CHARACTERS TO DELIMIT! Please, for the love of all that is valid input to any scanner / parser anywhere, do not re-introduce quoting hell. Really. Please. Don't. I'll buy you a beer. I swear, just put the unbalanced operator down and step back. Sorry, but I use POD specifically because it makes my life simple. Introducing unbalanced quotes into it would remove that functionality. A few examples: "And then I says, `Mabel,' I says, `shut up.'" The ``` character is no longer used. And of course, TONS of Gnu documentation which uses the TeX-friendly: This is the way you ``quote'' things. which means cutting-and-pasting such docs is now much more labor-intensive. -- Aaron Sherman <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Senior Systems Engineer and Toolsmith "It's the sound of a satellite saying, 'get me down!'" -Shriekback
