Hattrick Markup Language or HT-ML is Hattrick's version of the so-called BBCode. At the beginning it could only be used in Hattrick's forums. It's main purpose is to provide additional effects such as bold, italic, underlined, links and others.

With the transition of the site to .NET, it was also made available for HT mail. Since the update of the supporter package on the 17th of March 2009, it can also be used in guestbooks and press announcements, which originally only Foxtrick or Firehat users could do.

HT-ML tags have remained the same for a long time, only the addition of the Youth Academy to the game in 2007 and the redesign of 2008 brought changes in terms of available tags. Additional changes were made with the introduction of the so-called Forum v1.1 at the beginning of 2009, where quoting was eased up a little

Since the beginning of May 2009, the HT-ML has to be strictly nested. This means that any tag cannot exceed the scope of its enclosing tag.
An example: [i][b]Hello[/b][/i] is correct syntax, while [i][b]Hello[/i][/b] is not.

Current HT-ML code[edit]

This table shows the known markups and their usage.

The text between the two tags is put into a separate block written in italic and with a gray background. Interlacing this tag makes the background become darker and darker.

1. ^  Tables must be strictly nested. The minimum table is: [table][tr][td]Single cell[/td][/tr][/table]. Example of a 2 row, 3 column table:
[table]
[tr][th]H1[/th][th]H2[/th][th]H3[/th][/tr]
[tr][td]A1[/td][td]A2[/td][td]A3[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]B1[/td][td]B2[/td][td]B3[/td][/tr]
[/table]

This will result in (note that Hattricks forum has another design for their tables):

H1H2H3
A1A2A3
B1B2B3

2. ^  Valid attributes/values for TDs and THs are:

  • colspan={1..N} - This particular td will span over N columns.
  • rowspan={1..N} - This particular td will span over N rows
  • align={left|right|center} - The textual alignment within the cell.
  • valign={top|bottom|middle} - The vertical alignment within the cell.

3. ^  See 2 above.
