This thread has a twin thread on ahkscript.org: http://ahkscript.org...&p=54213#p54213
The thread on the autohotkey.com forum it will contain all IPB bbcodes that are supported there.
And the thread on the ahkscript.org site will contain all phpBB bbcodes that are supported there.
 
In the end we will see that there are quite a few codes that on IPB that are not supported on phpBB (yet). Now I'd like to discuss with you how we can convert form IPB to phpBB anyway. Maybe using work arounds (e.g. instead of a horizontal line we could use a bunch of underscores (____) or maybe we can find plugins that are compatible with phpBB 3.1.6 that would allow using some IPB codes on phpBB. And we could also write our own plugins to do the job.

Its worse than this. there are a number of bbcodes that were broken in the conversion to IPB from PHPBB. I suppose this is as good a place as any to start though

Okay, but if they broke, they are broken now, so it doesn't really matter too much if they keep being broken, right? I mean, sure we can try to fix that too, but I wouldn't give it a high priority..
