Forum software ignores tabs and leading spaces in message

vbimport

#1

Hi:

This message board appears to ignore tabs when text is pasted into the message. It would be helpful if the tabs were respected, even if there is no particular convention as to how many spaces they should be.

This is Courier New text
There is no way (?) to keyboard a tab here.
|<-- this is preceded by five spaces – ignored|
|<-- this is pasted in with a leading tab – ignored|

This is the text wrapped in code tags_

     |<-- this is preceded by five spaces -- not ignored|
|<-- this is pasted in with a leading tab -- not ignored if indent-tags are used instead of a tab.|

OK – thanks for taking the time to post this. I hadn’t considered this a ‘code’ issue, but of course whatever works is helpful.
