If you want to display HTML code without browsers trying to make it part of the page; just replace the < characters with <b>&amp;lt;</b>

eg <font color=blue face="courier new">&amp;lt;a href=/>home&amp;lt;/a></font>

will show up as:

<b>&lt;a href=/>home&lt;/a></b>

There's a <a href=http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/charsets/charset1.asp>list here</a> of character codes that you can use to display things ( like smilies :&#41; without browsers or boards like this trying to change the way they're read.

( yes, smilies are on - check my sig. :&#41;
