Inline markups are processed before block markups so it "should" work. 
Otherwise, you can call the PRR() function "PmWiki Redo Rules" to 
restart the markup processing from the beginning after your specific 
markup is done. Like PmWiki does with (:include...:).

Do you mean that your adding an entry to $HandleBrowseFmt breaks the 
existing translations in other entries? Or are the broken translations 
only inside the newly added entry?

If you add HTML to $HandleBrowseFmt and require translations, you can 
pass the HTML through FmtPageName(). NOT recommended for stuff written 
by users in a page.

If you have specific strings that need their translations in the PHP 
code, you can use

  $local_string = XL("String to be translated");

Or, to only process the $[...] strings in some HTML, you can use 
something like this:

   $intl = PPRE('/\\$\\[([^\\]]+)\\]/', "XL(\$m[1])", $html);
   (This is how the Abort() function in pmwiki.php does it.)

If I need to programmatically add some HTML at the bottom of the page 
body, I'd add it as an entry not to $HandleBrowseFmt, but to 

   $HTMLFooterFmt['my-recipe'] = '<form>...</form><script...>';

If none of these helps, can we see a snippet with the code and markup 
rules? I'd like to try to reproduce it.
