  • My comment looks so ugly and cut-off every other line - why?

    Yes that may happen and it is unlikely that we will code a fix for that.

    For the interested people: A comment box is a fixed-size HTML table. So HTML will do the wrapping, when a text line gets too long. Though HTML only wraps on spaces. And that leads to the problem:

    Do not use return to make your text fit into that input box! Since HTML does the wrapping - it might have wrapped just some words before _your_ return. That way it will look ugly. So use Return only to split paragraphs.


  • What HTML tags can be used in comments?

    Generally all HTML tags you supply are filtered out. But some are allowed:

    <B>bold test
    <I>italics
    <LI>item indicator for lists
    <P>paragraph
    <OL>ordered list
    <PRE>interpretes the embraced text as is; does not cut out spaces and uses fixed font. It won't wrap automatically, so if you do not take care of that, comment boxes will get huuge. So do not tell us that you had the preview-option turned off!
    <U>underline
    <UL>unsorted list

    Those tags are to be used in their short form. Also NO arguments are permitted. We added a nice preview feature - if you are using HTML tags check the preview!

    If you have no idea about HTML or what we are talking about, do not use the features described above!

    Do not bother to ask us to support more tags!


  • I sometimes see [Submitted Link]. How do I submit a link?

    Just enter the link which you want to submit starting with http://

    It will be parsed and substituted with [Submitted Link].


  • Sometimes a comment box is larger than others.

    Yes that may happen and it is unlikely that we will code a fix for that.

    For the interested people: A comment box is a fixed-size HTML table. So HTML will do the wrapping, when a text line gets too long. Though HTML only wraps on spaces. And that leads to the problem:

    For instance when someone types in long words such as AAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH... or uses dashes between words, then HTML does not find a space to wrap and will wrap on the next space it finds. Result: the fixed table size is extended and the comment box will get bigger.

    Since the font is not fixed-size, it would be an unrelative high amount of coding work to pre-detect how many words will fit into one line.
