Forget the PRE tag.  Make it CSS and make it standards-compliant instead
of IE-compliant (like all the <br> tags plastered within the <pre>
groups on many Metalink articles).
All this talk of RSS, but I don't think I've seen a secured
(password-protected session w/cookies) website with an RSS feed.

        I don't want something as "advanced" as RSS from Metalink - I'd
be happy if they could simply allow people to post/reply in a monospaced
font!  Man, I hate posting/reading explain plans et al once they're on
        I mean, how hard can it be to add "<pre>" to a forum/tar post ?
