When I write a post, why is the HTML coding disabled? Anyone knows?

    I think only mentors and admins can use html (but I'm not sure). There's still several commands available- to see the tags for them, just push the buttons above the text box. If you want to make a table or something you can use LaTex.
    Or you might want to go to Control Panel > Edit Options, and scroll to Miscellaneous Options, where you can change the editor you use.

    I thought I could use applets, or javascript. I don't know.

    HTML is disabled because it has the potential to be abused and used to messup the formatting of posts. Even with HTML turned on the use of javascript and applets would be disabled.
