Converting a Snip

We need to do the following things.

  1. Headings
  2. Links
  3. Bolds
  4. Italics
  5. Quotes
  6. Lists
  7. Images
  8. HTML Objects
  9. Line Throws

Headings

Headings, lines start with “1 ” or “1.1”, the ones need to be H3, or the title, and the onedotone need to be H3 or H4, depending on how the one is treated and if there is one.

Links

These take the following format

{link:flickr pictures|http://www.flickr.com/photos/davelevy/sets/72157623287187871/}

The anchor text is between the colon and the pipe, the URL is between the pipe and the last ‘}’. I need to extract the anchor and the URL and generate an anchor tag.

‘< a =HREF=”‘ + $hyperlink + ‘”>’ + $anchortext + ‘</a>’

Don’t forget about the img decorations for the hyperlink.

Don’t forget about the name only anchors!

Zurich



Spires of Zurich

The financial & commercial capital of German speaking Switzerland.

Why

I needed to visit on business, in Jan 2007, and returned 13 months later. In 2010, it began to be a second home, travelling through it to Zermatt (flickr pictures) and Budapest (flickr pictures) and needing to work in Zurich West. I have not been back since, sadly.

Money


The Swiss still use the Swiss Franc (CHF). Yahoo converts CHF:GBP here…, and the Currency Converter by OANDA.com, the Currency Site. is also available – 1.51 CHF:1 GBP 8 Sep 2012

Things to do

We spent the weekend walking around the old town and visited the Kunsthaus, the ferry quay with its views down the lake, the Lindhof park, the old botanical gardens, the University for its views over the town and the Fraumunster with its Chagal & Giacometto stained glass windows.

Hotels

These first two are recommended by the business travel agent, and neither are in the rough guide.

My Map

This is Zurich city centre, the google map has the airport marked up.

Getting There

In England, since we’re without the car, a very useful public transport is the Speedbus, which runs from Woking Station to London Heathrow Terminals. This is quicker than driving and parking; you’re taken straight there. The buses leave Woking every half hour on the hour or half hour. I have taken to flying Swiss from LCY.

If travelling to Zurich West, for the Crown Plaza or Mercure, one needs Tram No. 2 from Paradeplatz,the 6,7,11 & 13 go from the tramstop on Bahnhofstrasse to Paradeplatz. The 11 & 13 can be caught from the tram stop at the Hauptbahnhof front concourse, the 6 can also be found at the tramstop at the south side entrance.
