I would like to see support for this[/], which is supported by some other forums. It makes it easier to deal with bbCodes.
As that would be pretty neat, it might get far to confusing if you have a few different BBcodes ending at different times on one line of text.
That is a pattern matching bug ridden nightmare waiting to happen, and I don't see how it would be beneficialunless I'm missing something. Why not just use ?
Laziness would be a factor I guess, not having to type [/spoiler ], [/color ], ... makes it pretty easy ( [/] is shorter). When nesting tags, you don't need to see in which order they were opened to close them.
Once you've been using the above method, you don't want to go back. :) Though I can understand it may be a nightmare to implement, but it was just a suggestion of course.
Come on, if you don't allow overlapping tags, it is no issue at all to support. Need I remind you that if you want to succeed in that valid html goal, you can not allow overlapping tags.

Yeah, stop overlapping tags, see how tickets, bug tracker, and this feedback forum reacts :P
What do you mean by, overlapping tags? Using a list tag inside a colour tag?
XHTML doesn't allow this because it's an application of XML which is a strict language and only allows a sort of "tree" structure of elements. HTML is an application of SGML which is not always strict. Technically, if you want to XHTML valid you'd need to do this:
Which as you can see, is very confusing.
I see what you mean. Trying to overlap tags at the other forum gives me this result:
with eryone in italic. Looks like they don't support overlapping tags either then. I've never used them so I wouldn't miss it, but I understand why you can't have both.
Hello everyoneHello everyone
I am quite sure that HTML doesn't allow overlapping elements either.
Also, I have yet to find a real use for overlapping elements, in my limited experience, it only looks bad.
