Question ASCII Diagrams?


I've tried a few post here using simple ascii diagrams, (a pictures worth a thousand words eh?(particularly when you can't spell!!)), but the post seems to have all of the spaces stripped out of it when posted so the result is an unrecogniseable mess.

Is there any way to stop this?

Cheers

My self portrait (how vain!) is much better than that. (Best viewed with a mozilla/netscape browser).

Hehe.

Errm, does this belong in Website Suggestions?

       |   |_ |   |       |    | \    \ 
        \_____/       |__|   \__\

Thanks, what font did you use cos mine looks wonky?

And as I read it the title of this forum is Website Suggestions and "Questions". So I think this qualifies.

Cheers

i just typed "acsi text generator into google and typed in stuff... it should automatically line up as you're using a fixed width font. it's more likely to be the applciation you're drawing it in in the first place, try a basic temrinal app in a basic terminal i.e. no konsole or gnome-terminal with fancy fonts and pico or vi....

Darin, where'd you find that one? I've been looking at quite a few, but I haven't seen one that can do that. It's amazing!
