Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out...
Hmm, I think it'd be a pretty simple if...else statement, but I do agree it'll need to be reworked regardless.I'll work on the help tab thing later.
As for the colours, we prefer if they are not used especially in posts since we have different themes and it can be very difficult to read something other than black on them all.
The colour that you've used is hardly readable at all on the Dungeon theme and I'd rather not promote the use of colour in posts for reasons like that.
I'm sure I could work on something to force colours to be black as a default if a user selects it but it's too much work for something that'll probably need to be redone after a merge with ZI anyway.
