Part 8: HTML Tag Processing
As was noted in the previous example, you have the option of merging information
into an HTML form in two modes. You can perform a simple merge where the
PicLan-IP web server will handle HTML quoting automatically. This is used
for simple single-element insertions that do not need to contain HTML tags.
The other option, specified by the RAW(...) insertion point function,
requires that your code perform HTML quoting manually as needed. Fortunately,
the PicLan-IP function PL_QUOTE(...) makes this task easy.
In general, when you build a web application with PicLan-IP, you want
to do as little HTML within MV/Basic as is practical. If you HTML editor
will build the document for you with an acceptable layout, then you should
just use simple insertions to add your variable data. Only when you get
to variable sized tables are inserted HTML tags necessary, and even then,
they are quite easy to deal with.
