    It ssems that those of us who wish to use the '/' and '\' characters within the vB "[color]" tag are out of luck.
    Apparently the slashes escape the tag somehow and wreak havoc with the displayed result.

    So the question is...
    Is there any way around this?

    Cuz the Chaos Turtle that Griffith_SE made me would be even more awesome if it was in color! :)

    He's right, by gum!

    Did I just say "by gum"?

    Actually... its just the \ backslash thats a problem. I don't know of any way around it.

    ........___
    .,,....//..\\
    (_,\/..\_/. \
    ..\..\_/_\_/>
    ../_/.../_/


    This is about the best I can do.

    ........[color="a06060"]___[/color]
    .,,....[color="a06060"]//[/color]..[color="a06060"]``[/color]
    [color="00ff3f"](_,`[/color][color="a06060"]/[/color]..[color="a06060"]`_/ `[/color]
    ..[color="00ff3f"]`[/color]..[color="a06060"]`_/_`_/[/color][color="00ff3f"]>[/color]
    ..[color="00ff3f"]/_/[/color]....[color="00ff3f"]/_/[/color]

    Actually it's a known issue - and it happens with any tag that uses regexes (NOT bold/italics/quote/code). I'll see what I can do.
