    Does anyone know of a CONDENSED, printable list of BB Codes?

    I looked at the list included here in the Lounge and "print preview" shows it to be 7 pages long.
    Googled a few and they ranged from 7 to 9 pages. i don't want to print a book, just a reference list of available code.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I just used SnagIt to capture the BB Codes as a PDF file. Tis 6 pages long 256KB. Interested?

    I could try to export it to Word to see if I can get it in a smaller size.

    OK, forget converting the PDF to Word... ended as a 1mb file.

    However, I converted it from a PDF to HTM file and it is 4KB in size. I'll try attaching it to this message and hopefully you can print it off. If it becomes unwieldy, I'll delete this post.

    I'm afraid that didn't work.

    I'll try to post a handy list later on.

    I'll look forward to the list, Hans.

    There is a little error in the Lounge's long list of codes, involving Horizontal Rule {hr}. A closing {/hr} code is required (interestingly, it isn't required on the same line). (Note that you actually would use [square brackets] in place of the {curly braces}.)

    <hr width='100%'>
    Also, it could be challenging to keep a cheat sheet up-to-date -- it seems that page keeps getting longer and longer.

    Here is a two-page Word document. If your eyes are good, you could print the two pages reduced to 50% on one sheet.

    I haven't attempted to display all results accurately.

    Here's another take on it. It's "tight" (meaning a little bit cryptic as well as lacking "white space") but includes the icons in the standard editor for cross-reference. There's a PDF for quick printing and a DOC if you would like to edit or expound.

    There wasn't room for smilies. I'm sure someone can put one of those together as the collection expands.

    I hope this is the sort of list people may be able to use. I intend to put the gifs with the links and update the page but I wanted to be sure I was doing it the proper way. Feedback will be appreciated.
