Sorry if this is obvious or anything but how do you uncover any spoilered-out text, it's really bugging me not been able to read posts.

    You hold down the left button of your mouse and highlight the text.

    "<span class="spoiler">Yes, that confused me too at first. If I hadn't been idly highlighting the board with my mouse one day I might never have found out.</span>"

    Actually, highlighting doesn't work for everyone (like me&#33wink.gif. Not all of us use IE, I use Opera. If anyone has a better idea than copy/pasting, I'd be glad to hear it, thanks. smile.gif

    blah@emoticons.

    Just as a side note, doesn't emoticons sound like really wussy Transformers?

    You can just call them smilies, which not only doesn't sound like a Transformers reference at all, it's also slightly funnier.

    Iccyh, you can also hit "Quote" on the post you want to read, that shows it in code. A bit tedious, I know, but better than copy-pasting IMO.

    Opera 7 beta 2 can highlight the text just fine. Only earlier versions have problems, probably something related to CSS interpretation.

    Yeah, I'm still using Opera 6. I'll get 7 when it's out of beta. I'm sort of surprised that they're charging for use of the beta (without ads, that is).

    Just 'cause I'm feeling picky, "problems" wouldn't be the word I'd use myself, I'd just say that it interprets the code differently (than say IE). I like my Opera :)

    You can play with semantics all you want, but if it's interpreting that code incorrectly, I'm gonna consider that a problem. ;)

    Ooohhh, semantics are important though.

    As far as I understand, CSS doesn't spell out *exactly* how it should be interpreted, and as such, you can discrepancies between two browsers on how things are displayed. Having something written for one browser that won't work for another isn't a mistake, error, or problem, it's just a difference in interpretation. This has been a long and annoying problem with browsers, and is usually blamed on poor adherance to the standards layed out by the W3C...

    I'm just hesitant to call it a mistake that Opera doesn't display CSS exactly the same way IE does, as being standards compliant has been something Opera has been quite good at.

    I swear, I'm usually not this easy to get going, hehe. :)

    I use IE, and I still have to hit the "Quote" button to see spoilers. Text shows up when I highlight it, yes, but the text is white against a light-blue highlighted background, making it very difficult to read.

    Also, in Opera (6 works), you can click on the icon or use Control+G to toggle to a user stylesheet for a second to view the spoiler text. Don't know why I didn't remember that earlier.

    Aha, thanks. I rarely (almost never) use the user style sheets, it wouldn't have been something I'd thought of smile.gif
