Hi Just want to thank JavaRanch for being here - it's an invaluable resource and I like it very much. One grumble I have though is reading code snippets in UBB [CODE] tags - it's just too small to read comfortably on my 15" monitor. I know code is traditionally shown in a serif font, but if you're going to show it that small, can't we use verdana or arial instead? Either that or make the code appear 2 points or so bigger. Anyone else think the same? Adam
You can use HTML tags as well as UBB tags. For code I often use: <pre><font size="+0.3"> System.out.println("Hi");</font></pre> which comes out as <pre> System.out.println("Hi");</pre> I arrived at 0.3 through exterimentation - it looks pretty good on my screen at least (better than 0 or 1) - but if probably isn't exactly the same on everyone's display. You can always use the edit function to change a post after you've submitted it, if you don't like the way something comes out.
