info

Message to be written when title has been retrieved successfully. Keywords: channel, nickname, origin, server, title.

BUGS

As HTML pages are not always correct and not openable with a XML parser, links actually searches for a <title></title> tag using a regular expression. While this is not ideal, it usually works in most situations.

Only a few set of HTML entity characters are converted to the human readable format.
