The code tags reproduce everything in them exactly as typed, so other UBB or HTML codes (eg Greek letters) aren't converted to what they represent. Very useful for explaining how to code something. But, also very dangerous as the software doesn't put in carriage returns etc to format the page to fit the window width.

The UBB software generally formats text to a certain extent. It'll ignore any leading spaces, and put in only one space if several are entered together. That makes putting together neatly organised stuff (for example something like a table) very difficult. It can be done. Small things in code tags if you don't want special characters. Or lots of non-breaking spaces (special character & nbsp ; ).
