2. Text Markup within the Text Pane
The table below displays the overall function of text mode (input) and the graphical forum post (output). All markup is done with text only. The text pane in the forum text editor does not itself display any graphics. You can however get a preview of the post using the preview button in the Forum Controls section of the Forum Editor.

3. Known Bugs
These are some known bugs to watch for.
3.1 Known Bugs with adjacent emoticons
There are situations where adjacent emoticons cause the rendering engine to sputter.
The workaround is to add some superfluous code tags [c][/c] to help the parser's interpretation of the markup..
...Instead of - :D:D:D:D:D
...Use this - :D[c][/c]:D[c][/c]:D[c][/c]:D[c][/c]:D
and the parser will render 5 adjacent similies.
3.2 Beware the Html stripping "feature" with the "<" symbol!
