HTML cleanup tool & simplifier. For basic & clean HTML 🔧

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/21

I have used other on-line HTML cleanup tools in the past (especially for including parts of web-pages in a blog post), but so far none beats HTML Washer: [Wayback] HTML cleanup tool & simplifier. For basic & clean HTML 🔧

An online tool that reduces HTML to basic tags and attributes. Removes scripts, CSS, and other non-basic elements like , , etc… Also, corrects errors and formats the HTML doc or a fragment.

Settling on PowerGUI for PowerShell development

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/08

Preparing for another PowerShell article, I found this blast from the past, as somehow this missed the publishing schedule back in 2014!

Original text

After struggling with [Wayback] PowerShell ISE for a while ([Wayback] it started as a proof of concept and wasn’t meant to be an IDE you know) reading [Wayback] Powershell Studio vs Primal Forms Free CE vs PowerShellPlus Pro (also free) – Spiceworks, I’ve started using the free [Wayback] PowerGUI IDE for PowerShell by Dell.

The [Wayback] free PowerGUI used to be maintained by Quest, and after [Wayback] the acquisition of Quest by Dell in 2012, it is still free and is now at Product Support – PowerGUI Pro.

It is great (even got [Wayback] full support for PowerShell 3.0) and you can get it at the [Wayback] PowerGUI Downloads.

Unwanted non-breaking spaces (&nbsp) |

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/01

Having spurious non-breaking spaces seems to be unavoidable: [WayBack] Unwanted non-breaking spaces (&nbsp) |

Deleting them is tough:

  • in the visual editor, deleting a non-breaking spaces will mess up at least lists, pre and code blocks.
  • the text editor is the only reliable place to remove them. Search for  .

html – CSS Display an Image Resized and Cropped – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/25

[WayBack] html – CSS Display an Image Resized and Cropped – Stack Overflow (thanks [WayBack] roborourke!); see full answer link for runnable snippet and HTML (the WordPress editor keeps fucking up preformatted code blocks with html or XML in it).

You could use a combination of both methods eg.

    .crop {
        width: 200px;
        height: 150px;
        overflow: hidden;

    .crop img {
        width: 400px;
        height: 300px;
        margin: -75px 0 0 -100px;

You embed the img in a div with class .crop, or in-line the styles in the img and div tags.

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/23

[WayBack] Using Permalinks « WordPress Codex:

So for instance points to Delphi version info table: C# Builder, Delphi 8 through 10.3 Rio and Appbuilder despite the actual URL not fully matching the title (because I do not like link rot):
