    For lack of a better place, how do I turn HTML on or off in the boards?

    You have to have 'admin privilages' to do this and at present that means me and the site constructors.

    HTML has been turned off on our boards and is likely to remain so. However, you can use Markup on your posts if you wish.

    What went wrong? I entered:


    (ignore the "" marks)

    as per the instructions.

    Clicking on 'Preview Post' displayed my image as expected,
    but clicking on 'Continue' resulted in the HTML being displayed
    rather than my image.

    HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the set of markup symbols or codes inserted in a file intended for display on a World Wide Web browser page. The markup tells the Web browser how to display a Web page's words and images for the user. Each individual markup code is referred to as an element (but many people also refer to it as a tag). Some elements come in pairs that indicate when some display effect is to begin and when it is to end.
    HTML is a formal Recommendation by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and is generally adhered to by the major browsers, Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape's Navigator, which also provide some additional non-standard codes. The current version of HTML is HTML 4.0. However, both Internet Explorer and Netscape implement some features differently and provide non-standard extensions. Web developers using the more advanced features of HTML 4 may have to design pages for both browsers and send out the appropriate version to a user. Significant features in HTML 4 are sometimes described in general as dynamic HTML. What is sometimes referred to as HTML 5 is an extensible form of HTML called Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML).

    I've tried using Markup. It seems to work fine when I click on 'Preview Post', but then displays the HTML when I click on 'Continue'. What am I doing wrong?
