ah It actually works, once you format the text and put it all in one line...may not be worth it though, depends on how bad you need to use sed.

Everyone, please use [code][/code] tags around your code and data, to preserve formatting and to improve readability. DO NOT use quote tags, colors, or other fancy highlighting techniques. None of them protect whitespace or formatting.

To cbtshare especially, that long unbroken chain of letters is forcing the page to side-scroll very annoyingly. Please edit it to use code tags instead.
