    Here is a list of the tags that are needed. ``` <a> <b> <code> <strike> <i> <img> <ol>, <ul> and <li> <hr> ``` Feel free to add more to the list.

    Omg you're so right!! With some html you can improve your answers bigtime, every forum has it. Especially the `<img>` tag, it would be so much easyer to add pictures in the text instead of attachments. Also ordered lists `<ol>` can be very usefull. Many people do not understand \(\LaTeX\) very well so it can be hard to improve the structure of an answer. What i would like to add to the list: `<table><td><tr>` (tables can be done in latex but is kinda for more advanced) `<mark>` (you can highlight text in color with this tag, would be very usefull) They could also create a text editor where you can select text and automatically put them in html tags by just clicking on buttons, like you can in many forums) \(\Huge\sf\color{blue}{Great~Idea!!}\)

    Thanks for the suggestion: `<table>` is needed!

    However, I am not with the highlighting. We don't want to make this simplistic site blocked with gifs and highlighted text. Let's just keep the formatting simple :-)

    But yes, this stuff is really needed. Almost every forum has these, every good one!

    Or a filtered system like the BBCode tags.

    You could make an extension to do it, but the only shame it that it'd only work for people using the extension.
