Aaron, /please/ take no offense. I just don't understand where you picked `[=...]` up other than that is the (hated) syntax artifact of the original `CGI::Kwiki`. I don't recall ever using it in regards to Kwid. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation. :) > > 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.

In my first mail of the thread I pointed to it: http://svn.openfoundry.org/pugs/ext/Pugs-Documentation/perlkwid.kwid As I said in my last mail, it has moved around a bit, so pardon our dust. > 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.

No problem with this example. `` doesn't /hug/ anything so it shows up asis. Cutting and pasting LaTeX doesn't mess anything up in this regard. But really, you'll likely refactor it to: This is the way you "quote" things. Since `` and '' don't do anything for you in either Pod or Kwid. Cheers, Brian
