History: [-]

I found a notepad with some of my very first card designs on it. Here they are, without any changes.

This eventually became Mighty Jagrafess.

added line breaks

The name is supposed to display in three lines, like in the history. Why do \
tags only work in some fields?

I thought this would be a great name to have in an Un-set, like Our Market Research.

Ha. It's because I apply slightly different filters to different fields. The mana cost field recognises letters even without braces, that kind of thing.

I try to encourage people to use Markdown rather than HTML, although the Markdown library I'm using also accepts a limited subset of HTML. I guess I could apply it to the name field too.

The most important thing is to filter out custom scripts / CSS from user-supplied content. There should be nowhere on Multiverse where you can submit the text

< script >alert("Boo!")</ script >

and have a JS dialog pop up. So I need to be moderately canny in how I do things.

It would help if anyone had ever heard of markdown, I think. Yet another flippin markup language is not what the web needs :(

Anyway, according to wikipedia: To force a line break, insert two spaces at the end of the line.

Sure. But that requires a) you to be able to write multiple lines, and b) for me to apply my Markdown filterer to card names :) dude's original approach (using < br > tags) would have worked fine as well if b) were in place.

And I think a lot of people know Markdown but don't realise it. It's the formatting in use on StackOverflow and every other StackExchange site, for example. It's also not exactly new (2004, I think, although I only discovered it on SO and other SE sites).
