[center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

Hello again. Here, I would like to speak out once more.

I don't know if the forums has this function, or anything similar. But I think it doesn't, so I've decided to say it out. I suggest that this forums should also add a centering feature when posting, so when people post their messeges, they could center words or phrases needed to center.

If the forums already has this, then I don't think this would be needed, but do notify me. If not, I would like you all to give in some comments about this suggestion of mine.

I know it's not a creative one, because I got the idea from other forums and messege boards, though I really thought the board should need this.

I really thank and appreciate the people who reply to this thread. Whether it be agree or disagree, say out your opinions. smile

Sounds like a good idea. After I clear out a few things I am working on, I will look at it!

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

If we're going to have a 'centre' feature, also what about

j              u                 s                  t                i                f                 y             
                                                                                                                   

and

                                                                                           Align Right?

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

How can you "justify" that?

Aligning is good idea but you have to define a constant widht for the posts.

Aligning is not a bad idea. But what's "justify"?

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

It's when the computer makes words align themselves to the left and right by including a few double-spaces here and there. It makes everything look very neat, but justlooking has shown its weakness in her post. It makes text look silly if there isn't enough of it.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

And your justification of my justifying is bad too. tongue

The reason why I couldn't get it aligned (apart from just using the spacebar) was because when you click 'Preview', the width of the area shown (of the preview post) is not the same width of the actual post (if that makes sense?). On top of that, the message box, where you type your post, is also a different size.

I don't get it. You're saying her post was justified when you don't explain it.

Oh, like the words are spaced at a certain distance in each row?

M[sub]a[/sub]=x[sup]e[/sup]
[align=left]left[/align]
[align=center]center[/align]
[align=right]right[/align]
[align=justify]here is a fairly long piece of text so that you can see how justify works. I will say again "here is a fairly long piece of text so that you can see how justify works". Is that OK?[/align]

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

[align=justify]Now we not only have different alignments, but also subscript, superscript and a horizontal line! This is [sup]super[/sup], Rod! tongue I must try these out now...[/align]

Okay, question: how come the text changes size when you use the [align] tag?
[hr]
Hop, two, three, four!

[align=left]Left![/align]
[align=right]Right![/align]
[align=left]Left![/align]
[align=right]Right![/align]
[align=left]Left![/align]
[align=right]Right![/align]
[align=left]Left![/align]
[align=right]Right![/align]

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

Now let me try.

[sub]This[/sub] is [sup]great[/sup]

[align=justify]Here  we  go  ![/align]

[align=left]Hurray![/align]

[align=center]It[/align]

[align=right] Works![/align]

[hr]

And how come the text changes after aligning?

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

Looks fine for me ... tested in Firefox and IE.

What happens, text gets smaller? What display style (under profile!display) are you using?

Anyone else see a difference?

I'm using Oxygen, I think.

This is what the text looks like for me.

[Just noticed... there are smilies and buttons now!!]

Re: [center]A Centering Suggestion?[/center]

What I mean, is that when I'm using the aligning code, the text of the whole messege of my own post turns small. Though when I don't use the aligning, the text is normal, like your post, MathIsFun.
