Return to TT (thing)
<TT>, the [terminal text] tag, causes the enclosed text to display in a [fixed-width font]. This is useful in creating, for example, a [list] of [words] in which length is important, or in drawing something like a [magic square] of numbers.
For anything much more complicated, the <[PRE]> tag is perferable. However, <[TT]> is far less likely to cause bad formatting in [the page of cool] and such places.
The effects of the <TT> tag are perhaps best seen when viewing symbols of vastly different width; consider "'w' and 'i'" as compared with "'w' and 'i'" in normal text.
