I am just building my first site and one thing that really pisses me off is that the outline of the html is a bit messy. I like my outline to be precise so that I can visually see immediately what is going on
--2 tabs---- li
--2 tabs---- li
EDIT: ah forum doesnt like indentation. And Sean posted a second quicker then me! yeah I have noticed TinyMCE outputs shit in its html editor.. I would perhaps just copy the code from there into a HTML formatter (trying to find a link) and then copy it back...
I've used this before with badly formed HTML inside the WYSIWYG editors, it does a fairly good job at cleaning up the mess TinyMCE cannot handle.
Also, in terms of the forum - we've already developed some ways of inserting styles in these forum posts like my bold text and [link]www.google.com[/link], similar to BB code. We're in the process of testing. This means you can put some snippets of PHP or HTML in these posts with syntax highlighting and actual tabbing. :-)
the base tag and the meta tag may not be in the right place. it would be nice if the indentation was perfectly clean. I know that this would probably be a real luxury, but if you suffer from OCD then it is a bit of a must have ;-)
as sean mentioned, thats what you use tidy for (php-integration at: http://www.php.net/tidy)...
for complex sites, its just too much hassle to keep track of the indentation-level across multiple nested templates.
for simple sites: make sure that you don't have any whitespace between template-commands and the following html (ugly, but keeps indentation correct).
or even easier: use a proper source-viewer in your browser ;) install firefox web deveoper toolbar, firebug and the "source chart"-plugin
I am familiar with the solutions you mention, but is there an easy way to add it to my SS development? I am completely new to SS and I was wondering if you could just add a command or something that would clean up the html.
