QuoteFix does not work for me

Therefore, I tend to say

I want cats now.

The idea is to make the information as self-contained as possible. This does not give you a hint why I wrote it in the first place but at least the text contains a statement that is valid in isolation.

I would also complain that I lose track of who wrote what in an interleaved discussion too often. Is it just me? --Yecril71pl 19:33, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

I get the same problem. One of my prof. answered a mail and didn't see what he wrote. really crazy because i read only the half :( that is really bad! --Mabdul 18:06, 4 November 2008 (UTC)


Why did you choose such an uninformative logo? --Yecril71pl 09:02, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

have you a better one? *g* --Mabdul 18:06, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I have two ideas:

  1. a hand writing on the globe
  2. a variation of <5/>

Removing editorial note from the "What is the namespace declaration?" section

There's a little note in that section that says "(need to find a simple explanation for what namespaces are for)". I thought for cleanliness's sake that I'd remove it and just post a link to a straight forward description of the purpose of XML namespaces like http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_namespaces.asp. If someone wanted to write up something or link to another site, please go for it. Enderandpeter 09:03, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Maybe not quite as simple of an explanation, but I like the way the table at Namespaces.com shows how namespace partitions work. Rob S. 22:16, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
