    Has anyone discovered a way to include a block of multiple spaces when you write on this forum? The software seems determined to compress whitespace wherever it can and with a vengence.

        I can manage by incorporating m-spaces like this, but it's tiresome to   resort to doing that manually.

    I'd like a convenient way to at times present some text ....

    Code (Text):
    like       t   h   i  s
                  and also .....         like        this!

    but without those CODE blocks. :smile:

    Anybody?

    e##\quad##x##\quad##t##\quad##r##\quad##a##\quad##s##\quad##p##\quad##a##\quad##c##\quad##e

    Good idea! That's certainly another way.

    It is not the forum software, this is HTML standard. It allows to make source code readable without having to worry about whitespace everywhere. Adding other types of whitespace is the best solution.
