Here, a user has quoted one of My posts. The quotation reveals My HTML markup, the markup I usually use on LttD.

It is probably avoidable by simply using UBBCode, so this is not a complaint. Just FYI.

I'll bet for the HTML markup to show up as formatting instead of code, the user quoting your post has to enable HTML on their own post. That's likely what you're seeing.

Yeah, I'm figuring it was that because whenever you quote a post, it puts it back into the formatting that was used, so it'll show up with all the formatting the original poster used. With HTML, it does the same thing, but a new post defaults to using only UBBCode, rendering HTML into "just more text".

This post is mostly directed at the less web-savvy users. For you and I, it might be something simple, but this should hopefully break it down for others without as much background using computers.
