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)
