- TV.com carries XHTML's requirement of closing tags in the order you opened them. It may not even occur to those who haven't used HTML in the past that you can't do it another way, but in the past, plain old HTML let you close them in any order. What I mean is, if you were to some reason post a link using bold, then italic, then the code for the link itself, you need to type closing for the link first, then the italic, then the bold. The old way, you could have closed the bold, then the link then the italic and it still would have been alright, but not anymore.
Here's an example of correct coding:
The system won't let me display an example of incorrect coding, even if it's enclosed in the "CODE" tag.
- TV.com forums used to support formatting tags such as italics and bold using BBCode style. However, it no longer lets you do that, when mixing BBCode and XHTML on the forums, make sure you don't try to type anything that's HTML, such as bold or italics, as if it were BBCode.
- The "CODE" tag for displaying code without it being formatted only works if placed in square brackets and only if you type it in all uppercase currently.
