*Now fixed, see talk page.*

This page is an attempt to find a minimal criminal for the bugs in GeSHi, the syntax highlighter that powers <haskell> and <hask> on the Haskell wiki.

```
x == '-' || True
```

That breaks.

```
x :: String
x = map toUpper "hello"
```

Subsequent <haskell> blocks seem to independant of the breakages.

```
False || True
```

Looks like the (||) operator is causing the problems.

```
a || b
```

However, that works. Perhaps it only breaks when using literals?

```
'a' || 'b'
```

No, characters work too.

```
'a' || True
```

```
True || 'a'
```

```
5 || 'a'
```

```
'a' || 5
```

```
5 || True
```

```
True || 5
```

Any kind of attempt to mix literals of different types breaks.

```
'a' || 'b' -- chars work
```

```
"a" || "b" -- strings work
```

I think any number or constructor on either side of the || makes it break.

```
f 5 || g 6
```

```
f 'a' || g 6
```

Function application with numbers fails too.

Mixing "a", 'a', or a on one side and a function taking the same on the other works:

```
"a" || isDigit 'a'
```

However, with a numeric argument, it's wrong:

```
"a" || isDigit 5
```

Possible counterexample to 'constructors don't work':

```
a || A
```

Specifically, if they have two or more letters, they seem to fail:

```
a || Ab
```

More evidence:

```
Ab || a
```

```
a || Ab
```

```
Ab || 'a'
```

```
'a' || Ab
```

```
Ab || "a"
```

```
"a" || Ab
```

```
"a" || True
```

From the Intro page, '<' isn't linking, (++) goes to (.), (>=) isn't found

```
qsort [] = []
qsort (x:xs) = qsort (filter (< x) xs) ++ [x] ++ qsort (filter (>= x) xs)
```
