Copy the HTML source into your writeup replacing Xs with the appropriate numbers for your food.

Check my node under spinach for an example of how it looks.

Problems:

  • Copying. Browsers can't copy text worth @&$*. So when copying the html code your browser will probably add in spaces, convert tabs into spaces, and otherwise screw up the formatting. What can I do? I modified it until Netscape can copy-paste it to look mostly correct, but I doubt IE will copy it in the exact same manner. I see no way around this. suggestions welcome.

Tips:

  • When noding food items, node the brand name as part of the title. That way there aren't fifty different nutrional information writeups under common food items.
  • If it's a non-processed food item, like sugar or spinach, you could probably writeup the nutritional information under the non-branded title, as these items are pretty much the same no matter what.
