When you think that format is only a means of output, it's just one of many tools. There are many questions about HTML, XML, etc. output.
I think the trend away from format is that nobody really cares about text output anymore in a pretty format. They want gimmicks, images, bright flashing lights and all the latest bells and whistles
That said, I use format for text email reports I send out. I just think there's really not much to it - at least not as much as the "extraction" part ;)
It's sad that a family can be torn apart by such a such a simple thing as a pack of wild dogs
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
