The (B) Smilie

6 posts in this topic

Is there any way of altering the smilie codes so that ( B) doesn't come up as the smilie face wearing shades, but simply as ( b ) in brackets? Very often one can be writing something that addresses several points, in the form (a), ( b ), © and so on, and for ( b ) to come up as ( B) rather diminishes the effect one may wish for. I know you can untick the 'Enable emoticons' box, but you might want to still use smilies in the post, just not necessarily when you want ( b ). Could it not be possible to change the code so that ( B) is represented by something else, thereby avoiding a small amount of confusion?

* You could add to that © as well, perhaps, so that it comes up as ( c ) rather than ©.

B)

It isn't practical to change that as it would break that emoticon in every post in which it's been used before.

There is a better way to do it by using bullet or number lists.

And you can still use letters if you like

[List=A][/list]

  1. Thing
  2. Another thing
  3. More things

[List=a][/list]

  1. Stuff
  2. More stuff
  3. Yet more stuff

Or even Roman numerals

[List=I][/list]

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

[List=i][/list]

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5

To be fair, most of them have probably been put in there by mistake :D
