HTML Enabled!

Vote
The people have spoken!

I asked your opinion, I listened to your comments… and the vote, while not unanimous, was pretty much a landslide. Most commenters in this blog (at least, most commenters who expressed an opinion) want to use HTML in comments. And almost all the people who voted against it either don't care very much or had concerns that, while valid, have been addressed by TypePad.

So I've now enabled HTML in comments. You can use italics, bold, strong, emphasis, strikeout,

blockquote

and a couple others, which I don't know what they are so I'm not listing them here. Preview your comment if you're not sure. Go nuts, everybody!

Just an FYI: This means that, from now on, URLs that are posted in comments will no longer automatically get turned into live links. You can either use HTML to convert your URLs into live links, or just leave them as they are and let people copy and paste.

    … that’s odd. That’s a blockquote tag above, but I actually wrote it with html entities, so that it should actually just print as [openbracket]blocquote[closebracket]. And it previewed that way… But then actually got read as an HTML tag when posted. I guess you can’t entirely trust Typepad preview.

    Sorry about that, Nentuaby. I’ll let TypePad know. But I can’t promise they’ll take action soon, as they seem to be to their ass in alligators right now. (They recently rolled out new composing software, and while it looks like it’ll be good once all the bugs are out, right now it’s very buggy. I’m guessing they’re putting all their tech efforts into that.)
