Thank you. Such examples are always welcome, but could you please include a bit of explanation for this one?

It appears that you inserting HTML comments -- at least they're the same syntax, though I commonly add a space between the comment tags and the text being commented out -- , though your example appears to start with a close-comment tag right after the first list dBCode.

So part of the questions that come to mind for me would be:

  • Can I still assume that, in general, HTML comment tags would still be used to comment out text? Ie, does the same rule of being able to include HTML tags still work?

  • Does this mean that there are some special comments which provide special functionality?
  • If comments are still comments, special or not, when what's the business about starting this sequence with a close-comment tag?

Thanks again.

Not sure what you're referring to because there are no HTML comment tags in my message.

I simply followed SOP for seeing how something was formatted by clicking on the Peek button on your Message 1. What I found was dBCodes with HTML comments mixed in -- I tried to post that with PRE tags, but the comments got commented out except for the mismatched close-comment tags. In order to see what I saw, please click on that Peek button yourself.

I'm fixing the bug over on the cloud server ... dBoard software performs better formatting of messages than other discussion board offerings, like vBulletin.

So then what are you actually doing? Showing us the codes for formatting our lists? Or just running a test for some tinkering you're doing with the forum software? Or something else? Shouldn't you have informed us of the purpose of your Message 1?

When I was in the war (USAF-speak), I maintained a communications system (phased out of service and replaced decades ago). To test the live system, we would send test messages in this format:

quote:
test
test
test

This is a test message.

test
test
test


Something to consider for the future.
