    Hi Domenico,

    I was considering printing out the discussion you were having with Urs here:

    is every connection flat?

    but part of the discussion occurred before comments were proper XHTML so some old comments no longer display properly.

    It’s not urgent, but for history’s sake, I wonder if you could paste the source below to your comment here?

    Urs, nothing to apologize! one writes things in a forum so that others can read them when they have time. the day I’ll want you to immediately reply I’ll use Skype instead, I promise :-) but let us come back to n-connections. I’m glad you like my point of view. I’ll try to develop it better as february (and exams..) ends. there’s a point in what you write that confuses me:

    2-functors 𝒫 1(X)B U(1)\mathcal{P}_1(X) \to \mathbf{B}^U(1) for G a 2-group

    do you mean 2-functors 𝒫 1(X)BG\mathcal{P}_1(X) \to \mathbf{B}G for GG a 2-group?

    Only so it displays properly. Thanks!

    Or alternatively, I could finally get round to implementing a fix for all these blockquotes that broke when we switched to XHTML.

    For those interested, the problem is that <blockquote>something</blockquote> is invalid XHTML as the contents of a blockquote have to be top-level tags (headers, p, divs, that sort of thing). Lots of the old entries that used the HTML formatter contained these. So now the validator takes a look at blockquote environments and scans through its “children”. If it finds one that shouldn’t be a direct child of a blockquote tag, it sticks it in a ’p’ tag.

    For my next trick, I’ll fix those pesky ampersands.


    In case it’s not clear: this means that that thread should now display correctly (it does for me) and that Domenico doesn’t need to do anything about it.

    Just in case you haven’t seen it: Domenico said a few days back that he’d go on a vacation. I suppose he is not online currently.

    Welcome back! I hope you had a great vacation, but I won’t pretend not to be jealous :)
