And you also stick the spaces between the codes. Why not just do the appropriate number of spaces first and stick the codes after? That was what my example was, as many spaces as needed that ends with a double bold, with nothing between the 2 bold codes. Using that method you do have to use the $chr(32) for each space, but when you do all that, you finish with a $chr(2) $+ $chr(2). Only 2 bold codes total, and the spaces all come before it.
