It's quite adequate for the purpose at hand (especially when one considers the whole re-flowing, running galley effect). I'm enjoying reading Crypto on this thing. Perhaps a 9" or Letter-ish sized version would be nice to (especially for bigger, non-reflowable sorts of things).

It is not our fault — vB attempts to save us from malefactors by forbidding encoding of spaces and other characters. Even in the <code> setting.

Hrrrmph.

They gave about 54 free books (50 "classics" and $50 worth of any I want) so I've been pulling Homer, Huck Finn and looking (but not clicking) on pretty much the entire Shakespearean landscape. Anyone have any pet "must be in the library!" classic book(s)? I'm going to run out of ideas before I get to 50 (mostly 'cause I don't respect/know many of them and haven't tended to read Fiction & Literature books (I mostly stick to reference and biographies when grabbing paper from shelf)).

Ideas?

Anyone? Anyone?

Bueller?

...and The Koran
...and a bunch of Dickens and, ahem Twain's works.
...and

Lightbulb Encoding code (somewhat successfully)

Code should at least preserve whitespace, or it's useless as code - and thus encoding should not be necessary.

Lessee... (copied right from this page!):
HTML Code:
<style type="text/css" id="vbulletin_css">
<!--
/* vBulletin 3 CSS For Style 'akt' (styleid: 9) */
body
{
	background: #FFFFFF;
	color: #000000;
	font: 10pt verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
	margin: 5px 10px 10px 10px;
	padding: 0px;
}
a:link, body_alink
{
	color: #22229C;
}
-->
</style>
Seems to work, in preview at least.

Now, what if we have code that uses encoded characters? Test2:
HTML Code:
<p>(...) I go and sit on one of the benches
that for now are still in the shade, and just watch — it’s a very pleasant
area — enjoying one of the few moments of relaxation during this trip.</p>
grrr...! Entity refs are converted to Unicode characters.

Test3 ("double-encoded" with & coded as an entity ref itself):
HTML Code:
<p>(...) I go and sit on one of the benches
that for now are still in the shade, and just watch &amp;#8212; it&amp;#8217;s a very pleasant
area &amp;#8212; enjoying one of the few moments of relaxation during this trip.</p>
grrr again! Now the double-encoding is shown - inconsistent, to say the least.

Test4 (encoding the ; instead of the &):
HTML Code:
<p>(...) I go and sit on one of the benches
that for now are still in the shade, and just watch &#8212; it&#8217;s a very pleasant
area &#8212; enjoying one of the few moments of relaxation during this trip.</p>
Bingo! - just don't preview/re-edit because then the &-#-5-9-; is re-interpreted as a ';'...

Actually, this interpreting of entity-encoded characters in code sections is a bug in vB, and should be reported as such; if programmed correctly, this does not need to happen.

I will mention it, for what it’s worth. It is illogical, and makes the Code choice all but useless.

Thanks.
