A markup language for Message Boards; slightly simpler than HTML. NOT used on the All The 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]
[quote]Marks text another poster said.[/quote]

Some tags also take a parameter:
[url=]text to be linked[/url]

Also common on many forums:
[s]strike through text[/s]
[spoiler]text to hide[/spoiler]
[spoiler=text label]text to hide[/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.
