    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Since I have no clue on how to post html on this page(w/o it showing the "code"), you guys can try this on a website you have and see if it works. If you don't wanna go through the hassle, go to html5tube.webs.com(that's my site)
    Otherwise, CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO POST HTML AND DISPLAY IT!!! Thank you <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/lecture.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":teach:" border="0" alt="lecture.gif" />

    You can't, only staff can use HTML in posts.

    Your codebox screws up the site. You should put it in a spoiler.

    We do not allow HTML for non staff as it has the potential to mess up the site layout or worse if the person has malicious intent and when it comes down to is most of the time BBCODE can be twisted to do most things basic HTML can do (even if you have to use something like http://www.teamopolis.com/tools/bbcode-table-generator.aspx ) and it is far safer for the site and users.

    Still have you not got something like firebug- http://getfirebug.com/ and/or one of the many development tools available ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/tag/debugging for starters)- obviously you can not do anything with PHP (does client side PHP even exist?) and other fun web development methods but it does allow you to do interesting things with HTML and javascript (client side stuff) or indeed sites depending on what their forms do. If you need something slightly more permanent then you can turn your edits into a greasemonkey script.

    "back on topic" I do not think mainline firefox has HTML5 just yet (not to mention it did not get on well with my security) but I did manage to add it in (badly- the page ultimately had two headers) and it half worked from what I saw.

    Equally http://www.uniformserver.com/ is quite nice to have.
