    We have bold, we have italics, we even have bold italics text and perhaps some more font features.

    I would like to have [blue]blue text[/blue], [red]red text[/red], and even [green]green text[/green] too, it would look nice.
    But another one is very good in the Puzzle and poser Forum and that is [white]white text[/white]!

    Why in the earth would that be good for? White text on white background dosn't even show?, it is not readable, for gods sake...?
    Yes it is! If you mark the text with the mouse! Therefore you can give a solution in an unreadable text, as a non-spoiler feature, but you can read it if you mark it!

    Like:
    Question: "What number has the same number of letters in it as the number itself?"
    Answer: [white]The number 4, F-O-U-R, 4 letters![/white]

    Clever isn't it?

    Not really.

    The background colour of posts alternates between white and light grey, so 50% of the time it wouldn't work.

    Most forums use a combination of javascript and hidden div's (or spans) to create "Hidden Spoiler" systems.

    Mine alternate between yellowish and greyish-yellowish. But maybe it would be possible to set the colour of the letters to the background colour, or make them transparent?
