This is messy, first the text is escaped and then GUI tags are inserted, refs D720. But it should be escapeText(text1) + highlight(escapeText(username)) + escapeText(text2), otherwise it doesn't work with nicknames that contain an escaped character.
So escaping first is wrong, escaping later is wrong too or uglily complicated.
Same problem later in nickname highlighting of session and gamesetup chat.

This orders to the user to execute a command and in the next sentence it says the command should not be executed.

I can't identify a use case for the defaults, i.e. to join the room "arena" on "lobby.wildfiregames.com" with a password "XXXXXX".

The sentence can be removed without replacement in favor of the suceeding sentence.


Using SSL version, but does not inform the user how to configure SSL/TLS (nor how to run without SSL)

The trailing comma shouldn't be sent, rather than removed

mostly split(" ", 1)


But the protocol implemented is XMPP, so IRC seems terribly off to the reader, especially since most commands are well defined in that protocol such as /me, /kick:


Clients MAY implement a variety of interface styles that provide "shortcuts" to functionality such as changing one's nickname, kicking or banning users, discovering an occupant's full JID, or changing the subject. One option consists of IRC-style commands such as '/nick', '/kick', '/ban', and '/whois'; another is to enable a user to right-click items in a room roster. All such interface styles are OPTIONAL. However, for convenience, a mapping of IRC commands to MUC protocols is provided below.


The /me command [1] is a text string that enables a human user to type an action phrase and have it be presented in a special way within an instant messaging client. The text string is followed by a verb or verb phrase, such as "/me laughs" or "/me is logging off now".

The only command that is implemented in this function and in IRC but not in XMPP is the /say command.
The only use case documented for the /say command is that it allows sending of urls starting with slash.

The /special command and the g_specialKey are an extraordinary way to implement a boolean that should have never been written.

"nice" should be "translatable"
