    The iPad's browser doesn't play well with some text editors. Explore your options in the forum and see if it will let you select an HTML editor as default instead of a WYSIWYG editor.

    Alternately Tapatalk and Forum Runner are apps that can read and post to a great many forums, bypassing the web interface.

    Careful. I hear that's dangerous. Some medical studies or other suggest that people who learn things are more likely to get cancer than people who don't.


    {That was a joke, just in case someone took me seriously. Though, theoretically, only dead people should not be learning, so any study on the subject would have to government funded. The researchers are probably not publishing for fear that the public would learn about it and demand their funding be cut.}
