We don't allow HTML markup in articles or archive entries, instead we use what has commonly become known as BBCode (UBBCode). Most HTML tags will be converted to BBCode upon content submission, however, as more and more sites begin supporting BBCode you might just find yourself falling into the simplicity of it all...
Our BBCode has been factored to be w3c xHTML compliant. The BBCode start and end tags must be within brackets . Also, you must ensure you "nest" your BBCode properly or it will not be parsed properly:
-- Proper Nesting: [Tag-A]Hello [Tag-B][Tag-C]everybody[/Tag-C][/Tag-B]![/Tag-A]
-- Improper Nesting: [Tag-A]Hello [Tag-B][Tag-C]everybody[/Tag-B][/Tag-C]![/Tag-A]
Please note that we recommend against using BBCodes which will "skew" the standard view of the site, we will however make exceptions. These tags are "color", "blink", "size", and "h tags".
Supported BBCode are as follows:
Align (align=left|center|right) - Allows you to set where the text is positioned on the page:
Blink (blink) - Blinky Text
Bold (b, strong) - Bold Text
This text will be bold.
Code (code) - Any data within the code tags will not be rendered by the users browser. Please note that BBCode will be parsed and xHTML code will be displayed.
Color (color:#hexcode) - Text Color
This text will be red.
EMail (email) - Inserts an EMail Link to the defined address:
firstname.lastname@example.org (eventually will be captcha protected)
