Description Dan Bolser 2008-04-24 16:12:57 UTC
Why should the extension decide what formatting I want for my inputbox? (using a table and centering). Cant you strip most of the formatting from the extension code and allow users to format it using their own preference? 

Keeping the break={yes|no} option would allow users to easily recreate the existing format without forcing that format on all users.

For backwards compatibility we could make two versions of the extension, moving to the 'format free' version over time.

I don't like being forced to have a table (with a predefined style) where I don't (necessarily) want one. 

Can't the extension just dump a format free form into the page where it is included?
