We are told that BBCodes can be used to format our postings. I am one of those (very few?) weird people who have memorized a few such codes, such as [_i] [_/i] (underlines added for clarity) for italicizing intermediate text. I doubt that there are many other oddities like me. So, two questions:
1) Would it be possible to provide a pointer to TFM for BBCodes for easy reference when posting and/or replying?
2) Is it possible to provide buttons for pointy-clicky encoding of regions of text such as many other fora provide? See http://www.mersenneforum.org for an example where I post rather often if you want to see what I mean.
