Using backquotes ( ` ) in the syntax of your language/markup is really the most american thing I've ever come across.
@bram "proudly canadian"?
@ffeth ah, everything is his fault -.-
I still don't understand how you could come up with a so unintuitive syntax for rst >.>
@bram I'm not in love with the syntax, but I sure love the modularity and extensibility.
Markdown is short on those, alas.
The highlighting in vim helps me a lot.
@ffeth yeah, sphinx with rst is really a great powerful extensible tool, I just can't handle the fact that I still need a reference for writing a dam url because I forgot each time this `_a <qsd>` weird stuff :/ (and I won't talk about other things)
@bram This is why I tend to put all urls in "urls.rst". I just have to copy, paste and modify... :)
@ffeth hu, do you have an example?
@bram That I think of... not public (and I'm on a new computer :).
In a doc :
.. include:: includes/urls.rst
Now a link to Apache_
@ffeth oh, that simple? That's great, thx!
