The question of using HTML in posts has been raised with me by PM, and has also been mentioned on BoatMad
. It's possible that other people may also be interested so here are my thoughts . . .
The short answer is that it is a security risk, with a whole range of exploits from the trivial to the malicious. Some more details can be found here
Most things that might require HTML can be achieved using vB code
so there's not much to be gained anyway!
