    Is there a reason the carrot style tags don't work on my forum?
    Is it an option?

    My knowledge of html is limited but I always used to put music in like this:

    <BGSOUND SRC="waitng2.wav" LOOP="2">

    But now it doesn't work on the forum.

    In fact no <> style tags work it has to be [] style

    For the most part, your posts will contain plain text, but on occasions, you may want to emphasize certain words or phrases by making them (for example) bold or italic.
    Depending on the rules of the forum, you may use HTML code to produce these effects. However, more often than not, the administrator will have disabled HTML code, and opted instead to use vB Code: a special set of tags which you can use to produce the most popular text-effects. vB code has the advantage that it is very simple to use, and is immune to malicious javascripts and page layout disruption.
    You may also find that the administrator has enabled smilies, which allow you to use small icons to convey emotion, and the [img] code, which allows you to add pictures to your message.
