BB Code
A markup language for Message Boards; slightly simpler than HTML. NOT used on the TV Tropes wiki or forums.

The most common ones, found on nearly all forums:
[b]bold text[/b]
[i]italic text[/i]
[u]underlined text[/u]
[img]http://the.address.of/an/image/to/display[/img]
[url]http://the.address.to/make/a/link/to[/url]
[quote]to be or not to be that is the question[/quote]

Some tags also take a parameter:
[url=http://the.address.to/make/a/link/to]text to be linked[/url]
[quote=Hamlet]to be or not to be that is the question[/quote]

Also common on many forums:
[s]t̶o̶n̶g̶u̶e̶-̶i̶n̶-̶c̶h̶e̶e̶k̶ ̶t̶e̶x̶t̶[s]
[spoiler]Darth Vader is Luke's father![/spoiler]
[spoiler=text label]text label [/spoiler]
[code]#computer code[/code]

Occasionally used in Faux HTML Tags, especially on forums whose software strips out anything that looks like it might be an HTML tag (like, for example, "<blah>"), on forums that don't allow HTML posting.
