I also meant to mention that I disabled the code for adding the vertical box that displays the table of contents and other info. When the early sections are short, this makes the page look bad by pushing down the start of the next section. It can also get in the way, and the information it displays is either elsewhere or not that critical. Most of the time, it is easy enough to page down to see what's on the page, and most pages aren't so long that relative links to page sections are of much help.

I want to note some changes in how user-submitted pages are displayed. Instead of relying on the value of the UsesHTML column, it will check whether the text to display contains any HTML tags. It does this by stripping the HTML tags from a string and comparing the result with the original string. If they are the same, it doesn't contain any HTML.

The absence of HTML was previously handled by wordwrapping the text and putting PRE tags around it. But it is now handled by placing each separate line inside of a P tag. If you mean to use ASCII art on a page, you should add the PRE tags yourself.

If you use CKEditor's WYSIWYG mode, it will automatically add HTML code to your text. If you use Source mode, you will need to enter any HTML yourself. If you do not enter any HTML, then write each paragraph as a single unbroken line, and put an empty line between each paragraph.
