Why can't I post using HTML tags in the JavaScript and HTML forum? I know there's UBB, but...
Is it possible to have it turned ON?
TIA,

Hi Manish,
I think HTML has been turned off in those forums to make it easier to post code containing HTML.

Yeah, you are right!
Makes sense, that must be the reason.
How can I do the following using UBB-
1) Increase font size, when I include it in [code] tags, it's too small too read.
2) Changing text color.
I did look for it in the UBB help, but no luck!
TIA,
- Manish

The thing to bear in mind is that the font settings are only the ones which your browser applies. Most people don't have any problem reading things in "code" tags, and messing with the font size and/or colour is a sure way to irritate people.
If your browser shows "code" text too small, you probably also get very small text on several other web sites. Check your browser settings to see what font is being used.

My browser settings are set to default and I do not have any problem with font settings with other sites including this one, except for "code" tag. Probably, it's fine with lower screen resolution. With higher resolution, it's not always legible.
I agree that messing with font size and/or colour irritates people which I do not intend to do. I believe, if used with discernment, it is very useful in explanation; but then there's always an alternative.
Thank you for responding.
