Currently when a team founder edits his team page, he must know html to be able to edit the team page and insert images or links.

I think this is bad because anyone can start a team on a BOINC project for a variety of reasons. I don't think it should also be compulsory for that person to know html to add an image, a url or a link to the team page.

A simpler way might be if the team page could be edited with the same BB code that is used on the message boards. Anyone can learn BB Code in a few hours of messing around. It takes a long time to learn how html works and nobody has any idea of the list of html tags that are allowed.

This is what i personally wrote out; How to use HTML in your team description

What do you think? Should editing your team description be done in html or BB Code?
