    The Pike tag is an RXML tag, allowing the user to insert bits of Pike code into RXML pages. This is very convenient, if the function needed exists as a RXML tag, use it, otherwize, write a small Pike function that solves the problem. Unfortunatly it is also dangerous. The Pike code within the tag has full access to the server. Therefore, it is important that only trusted users have access to the Pike tag. Refer to the chapter about trust levels for information about how you can limit the number of users who have access to a dangerous tag. It is also very important to make sure that all user input is quoted properly before being inserted in a web page.

    As with all Pike development in Challenger, error messages will be reported together with a backtrace, making it easy to pinpoint any problems.
