How do you literally write a [tag]?


How do you literally write a [tag]without it doing its stuff[/tag]?

I've seen posts where the "tags" are visible, but can't see how to escape them (I tried Wiki style double [[s, etc but to no avail.

[Failed experiment]



P.S. Is there a help web site for the software this forum runs on?
I'd show you, but it is a trick with the tags and it doesn't display. :P

And as for the software, I think it's hand-made, but I dunno.

Like firedraco says:

the use of tags to peoples

[sup]the tiniest tags![/sup]


P.S. Any tag inside another, where the inner tag doesn't touch the outer tag, has the same effect. But you can't avoid the edges for the bold, italic, or underlined tag :-(
