|This a Useful Notes page.|
A markup language for Message Boards; slightly simpler than HTML. NOT used on the All The Tropes wiki or forums.
The most common ones, found on nearly all forums: [b]bold text[/b] [i]italic text[/i] [u]underlined text[/u] [img]http://the.address.of/an/image/to/display[/img] [url]http://the.address.to/make/a/link/to[/url] [quote]Marks text another poster said.[/quote]
Some tags also take a parameter: [url=http://the.address.to/make/a/link/to]text to be linked[/url]
Also common on many forums: [s]strike through text[/s] [spoiler]text to hide[/spoiler] [spoiler=text label]text to hide[/spoiler] [code]computer code[/code]
Occasionally used in Faux HTML Tags, especially on forums whose software strips out anything that looks like it might be an HTML tag (like, for example, "<blah>"), on forums that don't allow HTML posting.
