Why is code placed within a UBB? It becomes too small to read. Then using View|Text|Larger makes everything else too large. What is the purpose for this - the code reads finewithout it?
Just wondering.

That's a matter of opinion. The code tags maintain the indentation. Otherwise everything pegs to the left margin.

Unfortunately the size change came when we upgraded our version of UBB. I use Opera. The code inside the code tags isn't smaller in that browser like it is in IE.

You know - you're right, It would be absolutely intolerable to see no indents and the like in a code editor but I didn't seem to care in this context. :roll: It is good to know why - Thanks.
