    You might already be familiar with most of the BB Codes available, but here's one I hadn't seen before:

    [SPOILER] - Text Containing Spoilers
    Hides text that may contain spoilers so that it must be clicked by the viewer to be seen.

    Example:
    [SPOILER]Simple spoiler[/SPOILER]
    [SPOILER=Spoiler Title]Spoiler with a title[/SPOILER]


    Output:
    Simple spoiler
    Spoiler with a title

    , BB 10 will
    lose market share
    , Android will
    maintain market share
    and iOS will

    For people who frequent IMDb, the spoiler text is familiar, although it works much better there. If you hover over it, the text reveals itself without clicking. It is great though.

    Interesting, when I use the default mode on a Windows laptop, the spoilers and newpalm, etc. don't display.

    I'm using Default style on Windows 7. Clicking on the spoiler button in Post #4 opens its contents directly below; clicking again hides those contents. AFA newpalm (the smiley) goes, that one isn't available yet but the old smileys are being scrutinized for compatibility.

    Didn't mean to inject any confusion, Edmund, but you should know (not meaning should have known previously) that since I've been posting since my TX days -- when you *had* to know what the text for emoticons were, using Blazer -- most times I just skip the extra effort to find & click on an emoticon, and key in the text

    Spoilers work in default style on Chrome 32 bit on Windows 7 and Chrome 64 bit on OSX 10.9.4. They work in BH_Custom... and default style on Safari 7.0.4 and Firefox 31.0 on OSX 10.9.4. Do you really care if they work in IE? Neither do I. I haven't checked BH_Custom... on Chrome but I'm sure it would work. Spoilers are grey in default style and orange in BH_custom... style.

    BTW, I agree about keying in text for things. I'd rather type :confused: than mouse around the screen looking for something to click on and recognizing what the confused face looks like in this week's icon set.
