Recent twts from ullarah

@mckinley@twtxt.net the following is a list of elements that directly render in a Yarn.social post. However using HTML tags in a post will make “many people very angry and is widely regarded as a bad move.” haha!

Since the HTML tags won’t render at all for CLI based clients.

p.AllowElements("a", "img", "strong", "em", "del", "p", "blockquote", "ul", "ol", "li", "pre", "code", "figure", "figcaption")
