Bill,

The superscript idea is kinda neat and it's immune to the vagaries of proportional text fonts, but whaddya do if the chord changes in the middle of a long word?

I've tried using <PRE>Preformatted Text</PRE>, but it somehow gets messed up in the submission process. Here's an example of a method I have used successfully:

~~~~~G~~~~~~~~~~~~~~C
When I was young, I used to wait....

The tildes are unobtrusive and unambiguous, and as long as you view it in a fixed-pitch font, it comes out right. It seems like finding the perfect way to display chords and text is akin to the Holy Grail to Mudcatters.
