Trying to find a way to format a bit of text nicely on BMT

This has been bugging me for while so I'm finally going to be humble and ask how to do it:

I want to post this exact text (including the tab characters) so that it shows as it does when wrapped like this in
CODE tags - but I want to lose the CODE tags.

    10:00     GBP         Chancellor Osborne Speaks                     
    11:00     GBP         CBI Realized Sales     
    12:30     USD         Core Durable Goods Orders m/m 
        USD         Durable Goods Orders m/m
    13:00     USD         S&P/CS Composite-20 HPI y/y
    14:00     USD         CB Consumer Confidence     
        USD         New Home Sales             
        USD         Richmond Manufacturing Index
Call me pedantic but it annoys me every time when I have to post it as "code" when it's not, and I can't find any other way to do it.

This is just to save me a minute or two every day - no big deal - but for some reason it irks me.

I found some stuff about using the TABLE tag and bb code, but that looks like overkill in terms of effort required.

I can see that I can use HTML tags, but that looks like the opposite of what I need - the ability to display HTML as code, rather than the ability to use HTML, e.g. the <PRE> tag which would be cool.


PS Let me just test something. Can't find any info on stuff like the H and the S tags. What do they do?

[top]Test the H tag?

The S tag

Use code tag or do a search for table tag and how to use (complicated)

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
