The PGC Challenge Checkers have two separate outputs -- the first is HTML output for presentation in the website and is shown to you when you succeed or not with the challenge.

The other output is visible only if you successfully fulfilled the challenge and should be in Markdown compatible with the Geocaching.com. But it will almost never look the same as in the HTML output above, but it should cover enough information for the cache owner.

If you want to have your output look the same as in PGC, the best option you have is to screenshot output from PGC and attach it as an image to your log.

Using a screen cap of the script output isn't what I have in mind. When I copied the HTML above it, all I got was the text on the screen. I had to heavily edit it to make it useful. Ho/where do I get the HTML coding?
There is no way to get HTML into the logs anymore. For that, there is the markdown example log as I already pointed out. But it will almost never look the same way as in the HTML output, because markdown is limited in many ways and it is also not desirable to have overly long, beautified and decorated logs. Just listing the caches or logs as usually requested by the author is really enough.
