    the {hidden} {/hidden} command is supposed to hide text (replace curly barackets with square ones)

    And the text is supposed to appear when you mouse over it...

    But if the hidden text contains an apostrophe it doesnt appear

    the repeat of this line below below has its instance of "its"spelt right:

    Have you tried hiding the apostrophes in the hidden text?

    I have hidden the apostrophes

    Also, hidden doesn't work at all if there is a line return in the text, making it very hard to hide a lot of stuff when you want nice formatting:

    [hidden]Here is a line return which stops this hidden working->
    [/hidden]

    Thanks for pointing this out, I'd been thinking there was something wrong with my browser!

    It\'s like magic - it may look impossible...<br /> but once you know the techniques behind the illusions...<br /> it\'s easy!

    Wouldn\'t it be nice if the explanation of this techniques was to be found in the FAQ?

    Yes, but it would better if Russ and Chris just fixed their script. Not escaping quotes is a school boy error for coders, they should be ashamed!

    That's great! Thanks Daemon
    I agree that the RHP coders should automate this

    [hidden]however line returns still break hidden (but not bold and italic for some reason)
    And they can't be escaped[/hidden]
