Ehh, sort of. Yes everything you see on WOG is HTML because HTML is what your browser understands so that's what has to be sent. However VB does not allow HTML tags in comments, but rather what is called BBcode (bulletin board code) which is a light-weight set of markup tools.

The reason for this is because with some creative HTML you could do some very nasty things to someone who simply viewed your comment if you were so inclined. By using BBcode in the comment editor VB can prevent attacks that would be possible were full HTML allowed.

Pretty dang close for something that doesn't really support copy paste from Excel

Excellent. We're commenting with BBcode, sort of a sandbox extension of HTML. I may as well find a user guide to BBcode so I can fully 'spress mice elf. Wordplay in the sandbox, seems only natural...

In the editor, these two lines appear to have the correct alignment. But once rendered, it looks like they've lost the column divider between Model and HP.

You exported the spreadsheet as "tab delimited" ? I imagine the rendered result has something to do with vBulletin's default tab stops. Or something

I see that some of the column spacing is made regular by a mix of tabs and spaces. Is that the ultimate solution, Mike?

Tabs are going to be iffy on any system because tab stops are not well defined from system to system.

The editor doesn't let us adjust tabs. It shouldn't really be rigidly interpreted, the editor *should* (there's that word again) let us adjust tabs. But anyway, hit the <tab> key while in the editor and see what happens. It is only pasted tabs that have any chance of being rendered. OK for script kiddies, but we're grown-ups who know how to use tabs

Not really complaining to change things, just sorting out the capabilities of the editor. Thanks for the info, Mark.

Actually the real issue is that tabs aren't part of HTML so how the ASCII tab character (ASCII code 9) is interpreted is going to be browser dependent.

You guys have already lost me, but if you scroll down to the bottom of the page on the WOG Internet site there is a large box with this in it, that may help.

Bless you, Guru. I found the INDENT tag. If I ever post another table, I'll be on top of it.
