Mostly I just had to get that out of my system. You don't have to say anything if you don't want.

Or: This could make a great test edit page! Because I'm excited about the fancy text features.
BIG text FTW!

Not necessarily; I think some features don't show up in the preview that do in the final post.  I have a few things that I want to experiment with, but don't want to arouse suspicion that I'm hacking or whatever.  As I think my featured stripe Ible showed, I'm not overly afraid of playing around to see what's possible.

If you use color hex codes instead of names, you get a much wider range, as I am sure you already know. <br /> <div id="refHTML"> </div>

Yep, already done that (I hate using color names, you have so much more control with hex). I'm thinking more about the fact that you can embed scripts into HTML, and all the weird formatting elements. You can use tables...<br /><br /> <table border="1"> <tr> <td> </td> <td>USA</td> <td>UK</td> </tr> <tr> <td> Braces </td> <td> Fix teeth </td> <td>Hold up trousers</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Suspenders</td> <td>Hold up pants</td> <td>Hold up stockings</td> </tr> </table> <br /><br />.. or you can <i>abuse</i> tables... <br /><br /> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="30%"> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#003399"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#003399"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF0066"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF0066"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF0066"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#993333"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#FF6699"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> <td bgcolor="#000000"> </td> </tr> </table> <br /> What about the ability to embed "images" inline in your comments?<br /> <img src="http://www.adiumxtras.com/images/thumbs/dango_status_icon_set_7_19047_6248_thumb.png" /><br /> Even weirder stuff like <ul> <li> <ol> <li>A list...</li> <li>.. within...</li> <li> .. another list!</li> </ol> </li> <li> Why would you do such a thing? </li> <li> <ol> <li>Perversity</li> <li>Showing off</li> <li>Wanting to be just like Wikipedia</li> </ol> </li> </ul> <p align="right">What if you feel your argument needs some more <i>justification</i>?<br />You can be <i>in the right</i> whenever you want to be with paragraph align tags, providing you are sufficiently <i>dextrous</i>..</p> <p align="center">but you might be better off <br />finding the middle ground</p> <hr /> This comment is rapidly giving me flashbacks to 1990s HTML homepages so I'm going to stop now... just giving a flavour of the stuff you can do with the power of arbitrary HTML.

When you hit "big" font and go to "source" to edit your remark, it shows the source code, and you can add more "big" "/big" tags around your text until it is the size you want!
Should be useful for when you meet another overunity enthusiast.
That one had five tags nested around the text!

I think you're cool because you know about particle physics. And then sometimes you say something unexpected and I spend the rest of the day laughing about it.
