Just my opinion, but I don't think it should matter how a user posts his code.
As you know, opinions vary on this
As it happens I do think that I was too harsh in my reply to the post and it would have been better to have explained why posting the code in a different way would have been more helpful,
It does, however, irk me that users do not take the time to read advice in the plainly visible stickies in this forum often resulting in no code or a small isolated portion of code being posted and, of course, we have all seen code with smileys in it or partially in italics, bold, underlined etc
As to possible changes to the forum software, I am sure that you know where to post such comments/suggestions
