add lj-user tag

add lj-user tag

Short, concise description of the idea
There should be an <lj-user="xxx"> tag as well as the existing <lj user="xxx"> tag, since this is a common source of HTML errors.

Full description of the idea
About the most common HTML error I see on livejournal pages is the error message that occurs when someone types <lj-user="xxx"> instead of <lj user="xxx"> when linking to another user's name. Adding an <lj-user="xxx"> tag with the same function as <lj user="xxx"> would fix this, and the new tag would be more consistent with the other livejournal-specific tags.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Fewer HTML errors on friends pages etc.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Some work will be needed to add the new code and make sure that it doesn't cause any unforseen problems.
  • Livejournal pages that use this tag won't be completely compatible with Greatestjournal and other blog sites that use the original livejournal code.
Tags: lj-specific markup, § no status
