Over on the artima bb, they use a (java) tag instead of (code). That gets them the same indentation as our (code) tag, but it also gets syntax coloring. It otherwise seems to be similar ubb markup.
Any chance of importing ?Syntax Coloring

I think that is not an option with this software.

Bummer. It looks really nice, easy to read, etc. I noticed that the sun java forums use it also.

A definite should-add to the feature list, I agree.

I believe we were able to make this feature work on our server where we had some newer software running based on MVNForum. We didn't specify the language, but using the CODE tag did syntax highlighting for Java. In retrospect it would have been better to use a JAVA tag or something like CODE id="java" because we do wrap XML and HTML in code tags as well around here. I think the forums at PHPBuilder.com use a PHP tag for the same thing. It does make things easier to read.
