It's something that annoys me. The formatting for text on here isn't that great. The shortcut keys don't work, so you have to manually click on everything (1st World Problems :/ ) and until you submit anything, it's confusing because things like [Bold] and [Centre] are everywhere.

I realize it's just a small problem, and that "fixing"it would be more work than it causes. But just to put the idea out there.

This has been brought up before (though I don't want to find it).
In firefox html shows as colour/bold/etc. It may be an option, or automatic, not sure (I use Chrome now).
Formatting here is annoying, but at least it works.

I think (though I'm not entirely sure) that beta has these options and the text formatting on there is a lot easier to use. However, beta is still in the early stages and we're not sure when (if ever) it will join the site. But it does mean that there will be somewhere in the foreseeable future, an easier formatting option.
