Link coloring may be an option, but you have to keep in mind that people are using different CSS themes, so this probably should be implemented as a CSS class rather than blunt <font color="#ff0000">.

    Actually, that was on purpose. That way, neither themes nor CSS will lead to the colour accidentally being overridden. I was aiming for a representation that would be completely and entirely unmistakable under any circumstances.

      this is not true. this example style should disprove your case:

      /* color links */ a, a font { color: #457; background: #eee; text-decoration: none; } a:hover { color: #eee; background: #457; } /* override <font>...</font> tags */ font, b, strong { color: #457; background: transparent; }
      there are multiple ways to override the font tags in your example. my browser does not display your text in red, as you specified, as all font tags are overridden by a user-supplied style.

      ... you'll have to aim a little higher ;-)

        Then how about <font color="#ff0000" style="color: red"> ? But I can't demonstrate that since last I checked, style attributes got stripped from user text.
