Well, I tried all the normal html tricks, and no dice. THe posts are actually stripped of all disallowed code.

The best I can com up with is this:

put space making characters up before the text, and colour those characters #EFEFEF.

So without the colouring we would get this:

______Test

If we select those underspaces and give them a colour (eg. red) we get this:

______Test

and finally replacing the name of the colour with #EFEFEF we get this:

______Test


...which is better than nothing, and as good as it'll get, i think ...

It's not a problem with IBF, it's a problem with HTML. HTML basically doesn't allow you to have more than one space in a row, so your best bet is to put

 

Does that show up? HTML? I should do a preview...

CODE
 


That is the code for a space in HTML. Knock yourself out. I think it works in sigs, but not posts. Bah.

Every web page is driven by HTML but HTML code automatically ignores spaces when there is more than one so


this to

HTML

will read like 'this to HTML'. It's so that code can be easy for the programmer to read without changing the format of the page.

In HTML if you want to add an extra space you need to type the code for the extra space in, that code is &nbsp. The '&' symbol tells the browser that it's about to get a bit of code and the 'nbsp' is short for 'non-breaking space'. There are various different types of spaces you can add with HTML and this is the one that adds a space without breaking onto a new line, hence the name.

I read this last night so I'm chuffed I get to tell someone else about it! biggrin.gif

However, this board usually doesn't recognise HTML code so Pab's method is the best I can suggest.

That's dodgy discount books for you!

I'm not sure if it works with this or not, but you could try holding down 'Alt', and tapping in 255 on your numeric keypad, then letting go of 'Alt'. It's an ASCII code that appears as a space, but isn't one.

Edit: Yup. See the space before I'm? That's an alt 255 that is.
