I get the picture :)
Though I'd like to end this rather pointless argument of ours with the following observations;
- When you click reply and get the list of available bbCodes you can use, it specifically states HTML ON.
- OP was talking about HTML, not XHTML.
- Assuming people will view source code to understand how forum features work, on their own, when relatively straight forward game mechanics that are elaborated upon in the rules gets numerous threads in the help section during a year, is a wee bit far fetched.
Technically you were right, assuming everyone involved understood that we were talking about XHTML. There's a reason I used the wording "...it seems", and that is because I don't keep myself up to speed on the latest developments :)
