|Summary||0000370: Word limit is long enough for English, not long enough for the web...|
|Description||The sample code below is not a good representation of the practical application of this problem, but it is easier than recreating the actual circumstances in which I encountered it: in extension documentation, a list of links for further reference. |
This wasn't an issue in previous builds because the text prettifier broke URLs into separate words.
This issue is minor enough that it probably doesn't matter. But it does seem arbitrary when applied to extension docs rather than to code.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Test is a room.
http://www.fabiovisentin.com/tutorial/GIMP_transparent_image/gimp_how_to_make_transparent_im [^] is a thing
|Additional Information||Error message is "Word too long: http://www.fabiovisentin.com/tutorial/GIMP_transparent_image/gimp_how_to_make_transparent_im. [^] (Individual words of unquoted text can run up to 92 letters long, in order to allow for the longest recognised place name in the English speaking world: a hill in New Zealand called Taumatawhakatang-ihangakoauauot-amateaturipukaka-pikimaunga-horonuku-pokaiwhenuak-itanatahu. You say tomato, I say taumatawhakatang-...)".|
I (facetiously) suggest that Inform ought to allow up to 101 characters, so that creation's thunderclap from Finnegan's Wake can be the yardstick: "bababadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronntonnerronntuonnthunntrovarrhounawnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk"
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
