Code:
[glow=red,2,300]

Where does this code come from? If it's a homemade function it's impossible to tell without the function code itself.

It's the BBC for making glowing text.

Testing

1,300
2,300
3,300

2,100
2,500
2,900

EDIT: Well the 1,2,3 seems to be intensity (thickness of glow for lack of better term). No idea about the hundreds, appears to be no difference on IE.

EDIT 2: Well, about 5 seconds of googling "BBC code glow" gives me this

Quote
Glow
[.glow=red,2,50]glow[/glow]
glow
The three attributes (eg red, 2, 50) in the 'glow' tag are color, strength and width respectively.


Hope that helps

Remember, kids, the glow tag in combination with the color tag is only readable on Internet Explorer (fail!) or textbased browsers (yay)..

Unless you perform the highly technical operation known as "marking". Presto, you can see!

On a side note, I still don't know what the width is supposed to do. It obviously does nothing in FireFox, but it doesn't seem to do anything in IE either.

Nice double meaning there. Tongue

Or is it a double entendre?
