Bulu now has support for Dean Allen’s most excellent Texile, using Mark Pilgrim’s PyTextile. I had originally installed it for some other project, but after using for a couple of minutes I got hooked. And I mean really, look at these “quote” marks, and my TLA’s, a big step up over hand coding the HTML in my pages since I am not likely to ever memorize the character codes for the proper quotes. To make it easier to edit, I store both the raw Textile and the converted HTML in the XML data files that drive Bulu, you can see this in the XML for this post.
Now all of this does bring up a question, would Textile cut it as proper content for an RSS
description element? That is, there are some people that do not like double encoded HTML in their description elements. Would Textile be just as bad becuase it is marked up text, or would it pass muster?
As usual, a couple days of testing and I’ll make a new release of Bulu.
