Forums use HTML, which is quite good, but that also means that a number of characters do not display, and this can cause parts of the posts to "disapear".

These characters can be entered using their ASCII codes, but it takes time and if one doesn't know by heart the ASCII table, that's quite troublesome.

Would it be possible to add a drop down list in the "post" "reply" and "reply with a quote" forms, where one could select a special character needed. It would sure be useful when posting Find and replace strings, or anything else requiring the < character (or any special character).

Could be a drop down list, a table...nothing fancy but would make things easier, especially for those not too familiar with computer stuff.
