Please please PLEASE implement an 'insert code' feature!

I see:

  • Insert video
  • Insert image
  • Quote

But no 'Insert code'?

The Flash/ActionScript forums are awash with untidy code snippets

I suggest (css) a blockquote with fixed-width font.

Use the >> button; it contains SQL XML Java Plain code HTMLP.S. see http://forums.adobe.com/thread/745403 for some example - I'm afraid HTML doesn't work out as I explected it (it is actually interpreting the HTML code).

The use of semantically incorrect tags which get 'fixed' to look 'nice'

on some user agents is what got us in this whole crappy layout mess.

Obviously the proper tag for code snippets is the <code> tag:

Well, I don't really mind how it is done, just as long as it is supported

Looks like the editor supports the code element, but we have to go in to HTML mode to do it!

When Jive designed this (old) forum software, it didn't have Adobe and its products in mind.
