    Looks like PHP is always up for a good spankin'!

  • Urgh (unregistered)

    since the condition is messed up wrt smaller/larger comparisons, the spanking does not really matter, though

    if ($code<=19968 && $code>=40895)

    This condition can never be true. Was it || instead of &&?

    Gotta love the </spank> closing tag, too.

    "Spank" is one of those comedy words that can't be said with a straight face.

    Well caught, good Sir / Madam!

    TRWTF is that it always returns a tag with font-family:kochi-gothic.

    Please remember the elementary school rules. Attempted murder? Spanking. Successful murder? Spanking. Attempted assasination of El Presidente? Spanking. Successful assassination of El Presidente? Write "I will not kill El Presidente again" one hundred times.

    You get +1 too for an XML reference and because I only see because of your post he wrote ZooL instead of ZooT :(

    No, it is indeed never true, which is why it never returns the unaltered character and so always returns the cjk span wrapped version for any html entity that has four or more decimal digits.

    If my reading of the jolly docs on php.net (http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.preg-replace-callback.php) is correct, this will convert a run of compatible entities into a separate </spank> for each entity, which might be a bit expensive for large chunks of CJK text (even if you have fixed the <= && >= bug).

    Who cares?
    Not you, apparently, but others might wish to marvel in the supplementary WTF-ness of the way the replace-with-callback is being used.

    EDIT: or, indeed, tell me why I read the docs wrong.

    Man, browsers are getting advanced. Now, to deliver corporal punishment, parents only have to write an HTML page with

    <spank swats="3" device="hand" id="no-homework" alt="This will hurt me more than it hurts you.">
       Bad, bad, bad!!!
    </spank>

    The script used DOMPDF [...]
    So is that called an application these days? Convert HTML (which still is largely unfit for printed documents) to PDF using a third-party tool?

    At work, I solved this in Java by creating an in-memory DOM object, converting it using an XSL-T template into XSL-FO, and using Apache FOP to create the PDF. It leaves the code small and generic, and leaves you free to format the invoice any way you want by modifying the XSL-T/XSL-FO template.
