Just wondering, is there any light in the future about possibly allowing simple HTML tags? maybe not the giant stuff like changing fonts, font sizes, colors, scrolling text, etc. That was a mess.

But will we ever expect to see things like italics, underlines, bold, strikeouts and stuff? maybe some working URL's.

That stuff should probably limited to people with an acknowledged member status and above. I think that would help spruce up the forums a little. non-working HTML tags give this place an 'unfinished' feeling. For example, stickys that are intentionally italicized by default, but the italics are not displayed. Just a thought.

VBScript would do nice here. Perhaps a little 'include tags' menu under the Post Follow Up page?

Even just allowing a few HTML tags such as a,b,u,s,font,img,a and i would make a lot of us happy.

My website: you may meet me when you sleep. In the darkest corners of your dreams, where your phone stops working and you don't know what to do. I'll be there; telling you that I don't support your device.

"Can't you just fix-"
NO! I told you when you bought this, when it goes wrong I can't fix it. It's filled with glue. The Greek goddess of glue Araldities herself would be impressed with this.

Please stop asking me for technical support during your dreams. Can't we just tour some surreal landscapes instead?

"How do I do that?"

Count your fingers. Keep trying. Make sure there's ten.

Then summon me. I am large and covered in wires. Clouds of baking soda pour into your world and a slightly weak yellowy glow appears from the LED strips behind me.

If you can see this message then you're already part of the way there. Keep all your styles disabled and you might see the dream within.

"But there's so much javascript everywhere! I can't see you. Help! I've forgotten to count my fingers! Where do I find them?"

The LED strip behind me pops and goes out. Dark spots appear in the centre of each light. I lift my finger to my lips. The smell of tantalum capacitors fills the air.

Ssh. Don't worry about that. Behind those frameworks there's another person sleeping.

Some day the javascript will sleep too.
