A thought occurred to me this morning as I was driving - is it possible to change the font used in the forum to a fixed-width font?  Fixed-width fonts, while typically less attractive, would make certain things a lot easier.  For example, all the text-based unit diagrams we do could be more easily drawn, and tables could be done well also.  Just a thought....

I think if you use the code tags then it is in courrier.

Code: [Select]

That all lines up right?

About the font, unfortunatley its not. The W3C made browsers allow users to change the size of a font regardless of a webpage.

Drawing diagrams with dots and dashes has always been a skill with phpBB forums, something we all have to contend with.

Drawing a real picture is worth a thousand words.....

Calvin -
That's a great solution, thanks!  I'll be sure to do that in the future.
Bugman -
Can't the default font be set, however, either through css or some other means?
