Not really, in phpBB2, you have a config field that allows only the HTML that you want allowed on your forum. For instance, tables and div tags are pretty much harmless.
The risk being taken in "harmless" tags is in the attributes, particularly the event handlers.

I think you just said the opposite of what you meant. That's a double negative. :)

Your statement equates to: "It's creepy if it's finished."
I got a postcard from my friend George. It was a satellite photo of the entire Earth. On the back he wrote, "Wish you were here."

It's not a double negative.. If it's not creepy when it's not finished, it doesn't mean it is creepy when it is :roll:

Whilst that is true in the Queen's English, who knows when it's American English... how many times have you seen "I could care less", when in the Queen's English it should be "I couldn't care less". ;)

true, or in mathematical notation
a =>b does not mean !a => !b
however a =>b does mean !b => !a

that's just it though, if your site for instance, reads out of the phpBB database for something and it doesn't use the BBCode parser at all, then it can interpret HTML as HTML, and display it as such, whereas BBCode would be displayed as just text.

thats the problem, not the inability to display certain things because BBCode doesn't support it :) that's always been fixable anyway and it's finally going to become really supported with Olympus which I'm very glad about, but the example above is why I'd prefer we still have the ability to define HTML in the ACP, at least in a limited fashion.

and it's only a security risk if the board admin is a friggin' idiot and enables script and object and a ton of other *beep* like that which people shouldn't need under any circumstances.

Ya, and when someone says "All but..."

Like "He is all but dead"...shouldn't that mean that is is everything except dead? Not over here...it means he is dead. :?
