instead of html?

Hmmm I think you're confusing bbcode with HTML code. BBcode is simply a macro if you will to save time. It's not a web language like HTML, JavaScript etc. It's similiar to setting up a hotkey so when you press F4, your email program loads.

To answer your question then, no, but also, no point in doing so.

Hi Ausant

BB code is a set of tags based on the HTML language that you are already familiar with. They allow you to add formatting to your messages in the same way as HTML does, but have a simpler syntax and will never break the layout of the pages you are viewing. rgds,Simon;)

Bbcode is a specific feature of vBulletin to automate the output of common phrases or content easily, so it only works on a vBulletin forum like this one.
