    When I paste code to the board the indents or tabs get lost, making it harder to read.

    How do you paste code and keep the same form?

    Thank You

    Thanks Colo - but I don't know the first thing about HTML.

    It would sure be nice to be able to see all the postings laid out with the indents.

    I don't know html either...
    Type in:



    as you see it above and as Colo said,
    then enter your code.

    After your code type in



    This will retain the indents...

    Thank you
    I tried it on the "Test Postings Here" site and it worked.
    I didn't think it could be so simple!

    LOL, Fred. I have found most things are pretty simple here once you find out what they are, but they can be so frustrating when you dont know.

    Hi Guys:
    Someone just pointed this out to me the other day... the various "headers" and "footers" for bolding , italics indenting etc. are all very nicely documented on this sites FAQ page.
