Funnily enough tom I only heard of this tradition recently.

Other places where I've been, such as the mega man network forums, simply either type spoiler, or use the bb spoiler space code to print the spoiler in another colour.

I suppose it just depends upon where you've seen things.

Beware the grue!

Hi Dark,
I agree. On a listlike this where people use screen readers more often
than not doing it the triditional way is kind of pointless. However, I
guess it comes down to the fact it is simply tridition more than
anything else.

for myself, just a one line warning to give people chance to stop their
reading seems sufficient, for instance:

"how do I find the nature card in entombed?"

Warning, spoilage below!

You can find the nature card by playing any combination of  ranger and
healer.

Beware the grue!
