BBcode request: overline
« on: October 18, 2019, 07:49:40 pm »
Might it be possible to extend the BBcode to render text with overlines, according to the CSS level 1 attribute:
Code: [Select]
text-decoration: overline;

Active low signal names.

OK.  Fair reason.

Not sure how practical that might be.  If it requires customised code change, then don't expect the idea to be taken up.  Those turn into a maintenance nightmare, which we can't expect Dave to have to deal with.

While overline BBCODE support would be nice to have we can live without it.  There are two common ways of indicating a signal is active low in normal ASCII plaintext.   nSIGNAL or /SIGNAL.   

Its also already possible to resort to Mathjax.
Code: [Select]
\$\overline{SIGNAL}\$
gives: \$\overline{SIGNAL}\$.
Unfortunately, that's a mess for anyone with a browser that cant run the Mathjax javascript properly, and also doesn't render till the page is fully loaded, which is problematic for those on slow PCs or slow connections.
