Is ther something blocking me from putting in fake HTML?

Stuff like
<rant>Why can't I use fake HTML</rant>
or
<jumping with joy>Hooray, you're back</jumping with joy>
:???

<edit>I was able to do this by blocking all HTML, but i'd like to use little stuff like <b> and <i> as well</edit>

is this "fake" HTML used by posters to explain how to write HTML, or do posters use it for other reasons, I guess I do not understand using it with out any real purpose, just curious, since I used to make web pages a few years back and I only used raw HTML using notepad Smile

yes - you can use entity references. those start with an ampersand "&" and end with a semicolon ";"..

To make a set of brackets, "<>", use the entities "&lt;" and "&gt;" (so <foo> would be written as &lt;foo&gt;)
