Maybe a better way would be to allow the user to construct his/her own stamping method? Do something similar to mIRC and use a lot of % variables to represent things, then allow the user to construct the stamp in a simple text box.

...and you can create fancy xml tags like 54x's example <say method="flagofficer" source="diamondblade">'Hoy you lot!</say> by using the stamp <say method="%c" source="%p">%t</say>.


Unfortunately, that doesn't handle the escaping needed for XML... which means that it would be XML up until the point someone said "Hello! </say> my name & lose!"

Ah, well. That's enough necrohippoflagellation for me.
