Boldewyn is the name of the donkey in German fables (at least, the ones from Goethe). Despite its bad name, a donkey is an animal with its own head and quite a portion of wit.

As someone pointed out once, if you say to a horse to jump down that abyss, it would happily do so, whereas the donkey would give you a kick where you deserve it to.

And someone else pointed out, that laziness is a core requirement for a good developer...

It might be worthwhile to add the "flash" tag, since I imagine that to be a community that gathered experience in exactly this domain for several years.

comment unicode symbol(s) for a long syllable in a Latin text
How about putting a stress on the c? Like hoć? Looks strange, but might bring the message across.

comment How did 7 come to be an abbreviation for 'and' in Old English?
A small addition: The Tironian “et” is also available as Unicode character and can as such be used in modern electronic texts: codepoints.net/U+204A

comment IE8 Expected Identifier
True, and things like foo['while'] are allowed. But with the issues around setting CSS float and class I thought, $.fn.do (not $.fn['do']) would cause issues, too. In any case, a thing like { do: 'foo' } is not allowed without quoting the identifier.

comment Placing HTML code from external doc into a JS file
There are many different options. Do you have a specific build chain/tools or is the JS hand-coded?

I'd say, that @Karlen's answer is better. I can reproduce Hashem's problem but have no easy fix. You should accept his answer, then I delete mine.

@Rizier123 Nope, the final ?> is optional in PHP and will be silently assumed.
