That is not fair, you should first left align the text and next apply unordered lists,
Well, yes and no. Here's what you get - see leftbullets.png. Notice, BTW, that it isn't really left-aligned - there's some left-margin and/or left-padding over there. Anyone who has ever wrestled with lists in HTML is familiar with this problem.
But what you really want is probably something like this - see goodbullets.png. Turns out to be surprisingly difficult to do.
As I see the rage here I'd suggest this be an opt-in feature. I will allow this feature in my skins but will make better base.css default for comments and such. I think this is less bad than struggling with support cases like this (from today):
Just out of curiosity I tried configuring the editor. I included subscript and superscript, which operated as expected. Getting adventurous I included an image tag, which opens a file browser to get the image. Initially I was surprised that the image was added as data, but then thinking about it, how would it work out the required path - something novice users wouldn't know how to do.
So, should it be suggested, I don't think adding image tags is a good idea!
Subscript and superscript though, they seem reasonable additions, given the issues raised can be ameliorated.
When I read this, I was electrified. It sounded like Christmas and Easter all in one day. But, as the others here have already written, unfortunately it doesn't work very well. Because if you use a lot of "fancy" HTML code, as JGromit calls it <g>, the preview does not work at all. If you close the HTML editor dialog with <OK> the chaos is perfect. I'm afraid the idea was really very good, but in practice it doesn't work at all. That is a pity.
In an older thread I had suggested that it would help me a lot if the panel where you write your comments was simply "smarter". In other words, there would be a syntax highlighting for HTML code, just like there is already such an editor in jAlbum. It's almost all there already. You just have to allow it, optionally of course, that the user can say show me the "intelligent" HTML syntax highlighting editor in the comments panel (see screenshot). Which, of course, does not change the code. Wouldn't that be a good compromise? What do you think?
Yes, holding down Alt will get you to the legacy themes, but they probably won't be around forever (pretty much abandonware). Might be good to add a light gray L&F to the new crop. I know that "dark" is all the rage, but for those of us with aging eyes, those are brutal.
