Ah, Beauty and the Beast! Brings a tear t'me eye!

Subsequent viewings (and one of the Cocteau film) haven't quite held up as I'd like but it's a glorious film that makes you forget how much you hate Disney. Stands above its competition in '91. Menken and Ashman were quite a team.

Sure, it makes sense.

Except that the color=black prompts should work in any case; maybe there is a way to disable iB Codes.

I don't know if this makes sense or not, but I think if the original post was made according to the way the board was set up it will work with the edit/submit process, but if teh original poster had his own color scheme set up (even though that color scheme was the board's scheme) it won't.

I have no idea. This morning, I couldn't get the simple edit/submit modified post (which you recommended earlier) alone to change the color of my postings on this or some other "Best of" thread, but I did get the "color=black" tags to change the color.

But now, I removed the tags, and the color doesn't change back to yellow, and I can't find any earlier "yellow" posts of mine that wouldn't change the color by the simple edit/submit post.

Heksagon, I have been going through all the posts that are in yellow, as time permits, and editing them for color. Most come back in black without any prompts, others stay yellow. I tried your suggestion to Sabin on those that wouldn't change without the prompts. The COLOR=black at the top and /COLOR at teh bottom prompts don't worok on those either.

Sabin, I am able to fix yours without any prompts.

Any other suggestions?

Sabin, to change the color of your previous post, edit it, and add the text to the end of the post, and the text to the beginning of the post. (Doesn't need to be in italics)

2. The Thin Red Line (directed by Terrence Malick)
3. Before Sunrise (directed by Richard Linklater)
4. Goodfellas (directed by Martin Scorsese)

6. Unforgiven (directed by Clint Eastwood)
7. The Piano (directed by Jane Campion)
8. Fight Club (directed by David Fincher)
9. L.A. Confidential (directed by Curtis Hanson)
10. Ed Wood (directed by Tim Burton)
