    I learned this while on another forum, but here's some tips on how to post tabs.

    1) Type up the tab using Word Pad / Note Pad with the font Courier New (this font uses the same amount of space for each character, which means perfect alignment)

    2) Copy the tab to the clipboard

    3) In the message window, use the "code" option to format the text. (this automatically turnes your font into Courier). This can be done by typing:

    [ CODE ] *paste tab here* [ /CODE ]

    without the spaces in the code, of course...



    Heres a blank tab and an example of the code option:

    Code:
    G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
    D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
    A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
    E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
    


    It would be great if this could be made into a stickey for future reference... :) ;)
