Is Autodesk implying that its web based discussion groups is
"state-of-the-art"? Me thinks they have not looked around too much. I
mean, this has remained the same for years. If that is state of the
art, then the art has not changed for quite a while. You only have to
look at the many web based forums (discussing all sorts of things)
around to see that there is heaps of forum software around that leave
the Autodesk one for dead.
Oh yes, and the research line is what is called a "throw away line" in
the business world. The best thing to do with such a line is to do as
it says - throw it away.

What about indents? Looks like it was removed from that paste
unless they were absent to begin with. I also don't see code within
the angle brackets, unless << code within angle brackets works >>
was supposed to be it.

I think you'll be happy with the improvements for supporting code in posts. See attached screen shot with a sample post from the new
system that includes:
1. angle brackets typed in
2. pasted code (specific paste function that preserved formatting, and provided variable width window within the post)
