A Note To Everyone


Anytime you are posting code in with your thread, please enclose the code in [code] [/code] tags! This not only separates the code from the page with a visual cue, but it also preserves the formatting (indenting, etc), AND uses a monospaced font, which makes a big different in debugging source code. Without them, readable code becomes difficult to read, IMHO.

So, I offer a plea to you to take the extra moment and place the code tags around the code. In my perspective, this tells others that you are respectfully asking for help. You are, after all, asking others to help you find the problem, right? (=

Thanks for reading!

Also some good advice is to try previewing your post before you submit it ;-)
