For example, I started this message with </green>, but with square brackets.

To my knowledge, if you're closing a color tag, the closing tag would be [ /color ]

Right. I understand how the color tags are supposed to work. I just found unexpected behavior when I accidentally deleted only the opening color tag on a reply to a comment, leaving the closing tag, like this. It changed the font size of all text that followed, which was an unexpected behavior, which I tend to consider a bug. This is the forum where bugs are reported.

Hrm, I guess that is odd... Not sure what exactly is causing it, I'll make a note of it and see if we can find what's going on. Cheers

This post suggests that similar behavior might also be triggered by opening, but not closing, a code tag
Code:
like this. I'm not sure if that provides any insight.

Well, they've never provided an html tag to make text larger, so now we can just use this bug to accomplish that. Thanks for the tip!

mea culpa. I guess if I had actually read the fucking subject line instead of skimming it... Unsure
