Formatting of text

As there is no test forum, allow me to use this one for a quick test and set of questions/comments.

Comment: no test forum to try tests on! Oh well, driving is also learned in real traffic.

Let us see, is HTML escaping done for text, as we require this sometimes for examples:





However, other times we don't want HTML escaping, and especially are interested in using HTML formatting to achieve better text:
The quick


fox jumped over this keyboard.

And sometimes, we really like to paste a piece of code, which should then be shown in some font like Courier, slightly smaller type. We try a pre sequence:

There is no preview functionality.

After appending, want to be returned to thread, showing me my append in context. Not have that little "your are ok" thingie. Just annoyance.

General performance at 00:50 is sub-par. No further comments.

    HTML escaping works. Super!

    However, no way to bold this stuff. So back to the good old *high-lighter* here.

    Source code looks OK, because of breaks added and nbsp sequences. Ok this we can live with.

    Preview is probably like spell-checking. Somebody will see it.

    That OK button still annoys a few minutes later.

    What happens to a link: ?

    htmlbScrollX&Y copied really confuses oft. Somehow I am at the bottom of a page, press some link, and then the next page places me before a white screen. Scrolling up is then required. One should rethink this.
