Display inline sanitized XHTML markup

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin returns raw, inline XHTML markup that has been validated and sanitized.


Markup that doesn't follow these requirements will be rejected with an error message:

  • Elements must be well-formed.
  • Tags and attribute names must be in lowercase, attribute values are required and must be enclosed in quotes.
  • Empty elements must be self-closing with a space before the forward slash, e.g. <img ... />.


Dangerous constructs such as <script> elements will be removed.

Use Cases

Inline is useful for creating "phrase" elements not supported by WikiFormatting, or for including attributes such as titles. The #!html WikiProcessor works well for creating larger chunks of markup, and in particular block-level elements such as an <address> that are also not supported. A Microformat is an excellent example. However, Inline is designed to be embedded directly in another construct, typically a paragraph of text.

Examples now a [[Inline(<acronym title="Python Enhancement Proposal">PEP</acronym>)]].
Visit [[Inline(<a href="..." title="My Link">my link</a>)]].
