    We can already do boxes with quotes:
    Ask not what your country can do for you...
    ...and captions...
    METS WIN WORLD SERIES!!!
    .

    How about the option to do boxes with a fixed-width font? [Such as Consolas or Courier New] This would make it much easier to get tables to align properly. With variable-width font, you get:

    Round...........1....2...3...4...5...6...
    Carlsen.........0....½..1...0...½...½..
    Radjabov......½....1...1..0...½...½..

    ...which is not so well-aligned. Also, it would be great not to have to use dots to fill in the blanks. [Never cared for RHP condensing multiple spaces down to one.]

    They got one in '86, which has me covered.

    It could be worse. I could have used the Cubs.

    I support this suggestion.
    I send out a clan performance table in a message to all clan members every month and have to spend time experimenting with "dots" to make it readable.

    I got a good feeling about this century.

    I was 1 in 86 so don't really remember it. Closest I remember was the subway series about 14 years ago.
