There aren't any. I looked into adding [spoiler] [/spoiler] tags some years ago but couldn't get it to work right so I dropped it.

Responding to you here instead of PM, Wan... In absence of a spoiler tag with conditional visibility, the one thing I've seen people do is a hack, but it generally works well enough... Put the text in white text and ask people to highlight to invert the text like this...

Spoiler alert - highlight text to view....

Yup! That works pretty well too!

Added a post so this one would land on the darker background so I could see how readable it gets.

EDIT - Pretty readable. So, that trick doesn't work well on the darker background. Neither does cyan.

I tried mixing the two colors to make one color that was half-way between - a little lighter than the dark post background, and a little darker than the light post background... Here it is.

Sweet! Thanks guys. I wanted to be considerate of others and not ruining it for some that hadn't yet seen something.
