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.

      He doesn't want the sigs to be part of the reply node. I don't think that will ever change though and its not realy a bad thing. We have a feature that most communities don't, historic signatures. ;) In most places when you change your sig it changes all your posts, now it does not. The extra div and css is plenty to do all the formating you want with signatures.

        The extra div and css is plenty to do all the formating you want with signatures.

        I thought so too, but not quite. The reply text is inside a <ul> element inside the reply <td> element, so that the text shifts a bit to the right. The sig divs and text are also inside that <ul>. That prevents some of the potential formatting because the sig block doesn't extend horizontally over the entire reply area. For example, you can't create a sig box that matches the subject box at the top of the reply node. The sig box will only extend left to the left margin of the text, not to the left border of the reply node. And because the sig is in the same <td> as the text, it will only extend right to the box with the "[reply]" link, not all the way to the right of the node.
