Formatting Codes Supported on the XMetaL Community Forums

Use the following codes to fancy up your posts.

Plain text separated by simple line breaks is good enough for most people but the following "BBCodes" are supported.

I'm listing them here because not all of them have an associated button to make inserting them easy, and not all BBCodes supported by the software that drives this forum (SMF) are enabled.

In most cases the name and usage of the BBCode is similar to the equivalent HTML tag.

BBCode:Example:Renders As:
abbr[abbr=exempli gratia (for example)]eg[/abbr]eg
acronym[acronym=eXtensible Markup Language]XML[/acronym]XML
b[b]bold text[/b]bold text
code[code]//XMetaL Script Language JScript:
Application.Alert("hello world");[/code]

Application.Alert("hello world");
