What's BBCode? Bulletin Board? Like using *this* for italics?

These are for text formatting.
italic, bold, underline
Italic-bold-underlined
Try it to find out :-)

You can type your text, then select it and click an appropriate button (B, i, u) to convert your selection into a new format.

So it means Button Code? What's the extra B? Bay? Basic? Or is it just arbitrary because it sounded cool? Board Button?

Isn't it really just HTML code insertion?

So I thought originally.

Believe it or not, I used this kind of stuff on the Apple II in Apple Writer! I used to be on GEnie BBS and Compuserve before it turned into a monster.

Seems I can't type my own code <font face="serif" color="0000ff">in here, though. </font>

The wickets are interpreted as text by &lt; and &gt;

The HTML code is not allowed because of possible abuse. That's why BBC is involved.

Not even strict BBCode (from your reference), like:

<color=red>Then again, </color> (or with brackets) [color=blue]maybe [/color] [color=green]I can.[/color] [size=15]Or can't[/size]

Oh well, I really didn't need it anyway!!!
