pseudo html tags disappear in the forum


    Jan 22 2006 | 12:24 pm
    Hello,
    I just posted a message on the list with one paragraph surrounded with
    pseudo html tags to indicate it was a bit off-topic.
    Like this:
    blah blah
    the tags disappeared in the forum post (fortunately they're still in
    the list), so the meaning of my message is changed. I suppose the
    reason is that a parser removes everything it doesn't understand,
    although human readers are still more clever than it is.

      Perhaps try using [ot] and [/ot] or something like that.
      It's a fairly common thing for forums to remove all but standard html tags.
      In fact a majority only let you use a select bunch like bold, italic,
      underline, and a few paragraphs. Perhaps putting them inside a pre tag may
      work:
      Blah blah
      *goes to see if that works*

      You found the brown color :-)
      I could indeed use [ot] rather than , or whatever, but for me the
      point is that, as a list user, I won't normally check on the forum what
      happens (I don't really like forums).
      I guess this is the price to pay to get the best (?) of both worlds...
