deprecated pre box

Is there any wiki markup available for deprecated examples?

Hmm, that was a bad question. What I meant to ask is: what markup should I use for bad examples (which aren't necessarily deprecated), i.e. examples that show what not to do? --Maian 02:07, 26 Aug 2005 (PDT)
Oh, I don't think so, but you can ask dria to create a CSS class for that. --Nickolay 11:50, 26 Aug 2005 (PDT)
I'll add it to my TODO list for the new skins. I have to go through them again this weekend to fix up some stuff anyhow. Good idea, Maian. Thanks :) -- dria 21:06, 26 Aug 2005 (PDT)

coding style

Should semicolons be added to all the examples?

--Maian 21:06, 25 Aug 2005 (PDT)

The original authors didn't use semicolons, but I'd add them. --Nickolay 00:58, 26 Aug 2005 (PDT)

More coding style questions:

  • How many spaces should an indent have?
  • String literals in single or double quotes?
  • Code braces appear where?
if (x) {
} else {
}

or

if (x) {
}
else {
}

or

if (x)
{
}
else
{
}
  • What about empty code blocks?
if (x) {
}

or

if (x) {}
  • Should there be a space between operators and parenthesis?
if (x)
if(x)

Or does any of this matter?
