But, I still have not solved one of the original problems (the original sin) which is the fact that the CSS overflow function does not work for the bbcode pre tags, and so the scroll bar is currently for the entire post (wrong) and not for the text in the code tags.

I am pretty sure this problem happens because of how the original site uses table tags for each post; so I'm going to have to redesign all the posts to use only div tags without table tags (except for the small drop down / pop up menus).

There seems no way to get around this very boring and "not easy" part of the project, so I think I'll start on this in the next phase.

Basically, I think I'll create a new postbit template which on my user id will see, so when I fat finger some CSS or other make an error, only I will see the error, but you will only see the normal site.

Then, when we think I have it working OK, I'll make it live for testing.....

Thanks again.
I have fixed this problem... YAY!

To learn more about tags, read 'Specification of the PFS File Format'. Tags are set/removed to/from all pfs frames in the stream. Note that currently only OpenEXR file format supports tags. OPTIONS

If no channel is given, tags are added to the frame. --remove [channel:]name], -r [channel:]name] Remove tag of the given name. Ignore if the tag does not exist. If no channel is given, tags are removed from the frame. EXAMPLES
