Bluejack... looks like the number of messages increments even when an edit occurs.

I was just going to post that.

Also, why aren't the formatting codes standard html? it took me three edits to work out it was [] and not <> - and when you go back to edit it comes out as a jumbled string of characters.

Answer is in the parsing.

We can't let normal html pass through without running various security risks, as well as the age-old problem of people entering bad html that ends up messing up the whole page (or making it invisible, or crashing browsers, or entering script that might be a security risk to other people visiting the site).

But because the underlying software handles so much html, having it scan for < or > tags ends up slowing things down quite a lot.

This is not too far from UBB code, so it will not be too startling to some users. Others will just have to adapt, I'm afraid. Or don't use formatting.
