in reply to Check your signature (Signatures mistaken for content)

I've said this before, but I hope it's not TOO redundant. I think .sigs should be a separate entity, and not something that is pre-inserted into the reply text. Then the system could do any manner of CSS or html "--" separation of the sigs from the content in a consistent manner, and people could turn off all .sig displays if desired.

    Your wish is granted! Someone added this a while ago. Sigs are now wrapped in two div tags, one with class pmsig, and the other with class pmsig-ID where ID is the user id of the poster. You can add on-site CSS in your user settings to change how they are displayed.

    For example, I have sigs set to a font-size of 2px. "What's the point if you make them so small?" you may well ask. Mostly it's so that if someone accidentally gets their post content wrapped in the sig tags, I can zoom in my browser text and still read it easily, yet keep most sigs small enough that they are easy to ignore.

      I'm aware of the pre-inserted pmsig wrappings. That's not my wish. Re-read my post, please. I am saying that the system should not stick ANYTHING sig-related in the reply box. The sig is not the reply. If I have a .sig, it should be displayed (or not displayed) separately, just as the subject and other node metadata are displayed separately.

        I guess I don't quite understand what you mean by "displayed separately." Do you mean placing sigs in their own <td> element, like the subject is?

        For what it's worth, you could do this yourself using Javascript put in the Free Nodelet. I think I'll take a crack at it. I'll write up a node about it if anything comes of it.
