    Bah! I had no idea about vB:
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...doctype=Inline

    Almost makes me want to write my own forum that defines it's structure in XML, and support raw content through namespaces..

    <forum:thread starter="jkd" date="1/1/1111">
    <forum:reply type="original">
    vB is messy!
    </form:reply>
    <forum:reply from="Thejavaman1">
    pimping is <forum:style-bold>cool</forum:style-bold> <forum-smiley type="cool"/>
    </forum:reply>
    <forum:reply from="Alex Vincent">
    Watch me prove 1/0 = 7 using MathML2.0!:
    <forum:external-markup>
    <math xmlns="bla">
    <!-- bla -->
    </math>
    </forum:external-markup>
    Neat, huh?
    </forum:reply>
    </forum:thread>

    Etc, and use XLink and XPointer to build real references and links to forums, threads, replies, users, etc....

    Server side XSLT transformations to support legacy browsers, raw XML to decent ones, etc. Might be an interesting summer project.

    jcj - another vBulletin board I have visited restricts post editing
    to with-in 5 minutes of the original post - I'm not sure how much
    time is allowed here, or if there is a time limit anyway.

    <script language="javascript">
    win = window.open('newpage.htm','win','width=440,height=220,scrolling=no,resizable,status=no');
    win.focus();
    </script>

    I'm just using the above to test whether posted codes are
    recompiled by vBulletin with nasty spaces between certain words.

    <baited breath>fingers crossed</baited breath>

    [edit] Not as bad as it could have been - the line breaking is a
    bit of a pain though [/edit 'ed within 5 mins]

    HTML code is off (See the box in the lower left hand corner of this page titled "Forum Rules").

    Links to DD? Here's one... http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ . (jk) Seriously, I don't believe there is one from this forum. I could be missing it as well though .

    swell....

    After signing up and creating a post, not even having a chance to get ANY replies, thank you for throwing everything away so I have to sign up all over again and rewrite a post again this time hoping I get it in the correct forum. So what are all the big improvements besides a long winded sign up? Is this the way that webmasters do it, throw away the entire site and start over from scratch just to “upgrade” something in it? It would have been better to lock out new posts and let the threads and replies have a chance and move over to the "new" format over time and have new posts to the new format only.
