Using a BBCode to HTML transliterator in Cross-browser Testing
A BBCode (Bulletin Board Code) to HTML transliterator can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if you're converting a comments section of your blog that uses BBCode to a new format that uses HTML, then to make sure the conversion is correct, you can write unit tests for your conversion algorithm. The input data for the tests will be BBCode and the output data will be HTML. This utility can also be useful if you're converting a PHPBB forum that uses BB-style comments to a newer forum. You can just load the old forum posts in this utility and get HTML-formatted forum posts. Another use case is just playing around and experimenting, and transliterating BBCode to understand how it gets transformed into HTML.
