Yes. Not sure, but there have been offers to work on this for the 
single-signon that they're already doing for the bugtracker and t3org. 
I've been too busy lately to get this together, but it would be nice to 
have and it's on the list. Since I'm not a programmer, I can only act as 
a doorman to allow a programmer to access what they need to within Jive. 
Last time I'd discussed this issue was with Ingmar a few months ago.

Yes. :)

Yes, you just wrap it with [code] [/code] tags, which will preserve it 
all and set everything as "htmlspecialchar-ed". You can see it in the 
bottom line of the (currently) only sample KB item here: 

It is also css-stylable, so we can make it look however we need to in order to distinguish it from regular text.

But only 4 answers. I owe you one. :)

Excellent! I'll set your login up as a KB admin and email you offlist!
