Here is an example. The bold tags are typed by hand:

Code:

+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
| 46   -   [b]246[/b] |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+
| 46   -   469 |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -   29  |
+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+


Why does this not work? Try again. The bold tags are generated by highlighting the text, then clicking the B button:
Code:

+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
| 46   -   [b]246[/b] |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+
| 46   -   469 |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -   29  |
+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+


I guess I don't get it. The phBB Help says:

Quote:
All formatting used within
Code:
tags is retained when you later view it.


Really?

One more try:
Code:

+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
| 46   -   [b="246"][/b] |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+
| 46   -   469 |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -   29  |
+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+


and one more:

+--------------+
| - - x |
| 46 - 246 |
| - - x |
+--------------+
| 46 - 469 |
| - - x |
| - - 29 |
+--------------+
| - - x |
| - - x |
| - - x |
+--------------+
Code:

+--------------+
| - - x |
| 46 - 246 |
| - - x |
+--------------+
| 46 - 469 |
| - - x |
| - - 29 |
+--------------+
| - - x |
| - - x |
| - - x |
+--------------+

Keith,

I've tried, with no success, using different colors within the code tags (to make colouring chains easier to follow) and thought I was somehow doing something wrong. Coupled with your experience, it seems either we are both doing something wrong or it's just not possible.

Tracy,

I agree.

But, I swear I saw a post which had bold within code.

Actually, I now think I saw the following:

A section enclosed by Quote looks a lot like a section enclosed by Code.

But, if you have a
Quote:

you can have bold within it.


I now believe that anything you put in a Code section comes out exactly as you put it in.

Would you please explain to a beginner how to put a grid into a message.
I do not understand the use of the "boxes" e.g. quote, list, etc.
Is there an explanation available for this format.

Thanks

Earl

how about this:

+--------------+
| - - x |
| 46 - 246 |
| - - x |
+--------------+
| 46 - 469 |
| - - x |
| - - 29 |
+--------------+
| - - x |
| - - x |
| - - x |
+--------------+

Code:

<pre>
+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
| 46   -   [b]246[/b] |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+
| 46   -   469 |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -   29  |
+--------------+
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
|  -   -    x  |
+--------------+
</pre>
