              Uh, why did I have to be foolish and click the (now working) link in your sig? I'm thoroughly depressed. Sheesh. That song should come with a warning label. And a bottle of something strong. You okay?

                Eric, is there any reason why your code won't also recognize standard bbcode (i.e., square brackets)? When I want to post something on more than one board, I always have to change the bracketing to post here as well.

                  Finally, yea! Thank you very much Zoomie.

                    Sorry - you can come over and drink with me if you want tonight if it will make you feel better. I am fed up and frustrated, but otherwise doing OK.

                      The thing about allow users to post HTML text is that there is a possibility of a malicious user introducing something that ruins everyone else's experience of the site. bbcode was introduced as a way to remedy that. It escapes all angle brackets so that they're displayed as text, so that they won't interfere with the page's HTML. It then converts the acceptable square bracket tags into their HTML equivalent to be displayed as HTML. It was done this way because it was easy and quick. It's also silly to have the users to learn a separate pseudo HTML dialect when all its purpose is to stop malicious users. The creator of bbcode probably did it because it was easier than a full HTML parser. Since I like reinventing the wheel so much, I wrote my own HTML parser. It understands HTML tags and their attributes and is smart enough to remove all the dangerous ones. It might be a little inconvenience to some old forumites, but I'm hoping that to everyone else, it's as natural as writing HTML.

                        I'm with you - joinng you with virtual drink! Thanks for the laugh Smile

                          Hey, I responded to this last night without even thinking. Where have you been JK???? I made an island for you, put pics of cute guys and gals on it for you (OK, maybe the swimmer guys werent for you!), offer you drinks, hire a party bus, put pictures of ET on it responding to your reference, and then you disappear? Maybe I should be asking if you are OK? Wink
