[Delphi] Delphi JSON Reformatter (text or html output) – Pastebin.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/19

I might need this in the future from Delphi: [WayBack] [Delphi] Delphi JSON Reformatter (text or html output) – Pastebin.com

Return empty cell from formula in Excel – Stack Overflow

I never thought you could do it, but you can: [Archive.isReturn empty cell from formula in Excel – Stack Overflow.

  • a reference to a range that evaluates the function so it returns blank

Angle brackets in markdowndown needs to be escaped

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/19

A few days after filing <path> disappears from "Preview" rendering and also from actual rendering (at least in issues), I realised that this is by intent: Markdown allows to [WayBack] inline html which means that code like below will be all treated as such:

<path>

> <path>

*<path>*

**<path>**

> *<path>*

> **<path>**

The solution is to either escape or quote with back-ticks:

`<path>`

> `<path>`

*`<path>`*

**`<path>`**

> *`<path>`*

> **`<path>`**

Since WordPress also is based on pseudo-HTML codes, it too needs escaping.
