I don't want to stir up trouble, but I noticed we have HTML enabled by default. Does this worry anyone else? It'd be really easy to work up something dangerous, or heavily annoying, at the least.

I'd vote against it.

Ditto. I don't think much of anybody actually has a need for it, and it offers another potential problem/hole. If Scott has it dialed in tight or monitored, though, then it could be very cool to have.

I prefer markup that does what I mean, not what decides what it should look like. The UBB tag for CODE is still screwed up -- instead of using PRE, it uses TT and lots of BR's. The end result is (marginally) heavier code, and the linebreaks aren't preserved when I copy and paste.

Yet another repeat. I have to wonder which particular answers keep bringing up Stravinsky...

<table><tr><td><img src="http://dsch.8k.com/russcomp/strav.jpg" width=109 height=151 alt=""></td><td><p>If I were a Dead Russian Composer, I would be <b><i>Igor Stravinsky</i></b>.<p><p></p><p>Known as a true son of the new 20th Century, my music started out melodic and folky but slowly got more dissonant and bizzare as I aged.

...and, just because I don't feel like posting in both this thread and the other: (besides, this one doesn't seem to be a repeat...)
