It appears I was thinking the other way around, "writing the other in
term of the one". :-)
I meant make sure the (:details:) markup which was added in 2.2.120
looks and works reasonably well with a partial polyfill when necessary.
progressive enhancement on the whole page DOM, it is the right tool for
this. That's why it is so simple and so customizable -- accepts
configurable DOM elements and wikistyles/CSS classes including when an
element has multiple classes and inline styles, can come from any core
or custom markup, its content can come from pagelists, pagevariables,
included sections, whatever.
Of course ToggleNext could easily create a <details> block and properly
move the summary and the proper details in the block, but it would be
If you mean writing a PmWiki markup rule function in PHP that can do the
same (produce <details>+<summary> from any wikistyles source text), I'm
not sure it is realistic at this point. It looks far too complex and
difficult to write properly and to maintain. It could be done but PHP is
not the right tool for this.
