How do I create bold, italicized, and underlined text?

Mercer, PA(Zone 5a)

How do I use bold, italics, and underlines in my message posts? Sometimes I like to emphasize my Kentucky accent. ;~)

Thank you darius! I know that Dave only allowsthese three html tags and that's all I wanted to know how to do really.

I didn't see the "underline" tag at the link you provided, do you know what it is?

Thanks again!

TC...


Edited to try the "U" tag.

Looks like I answered my own question but still, thanks for the helpful link darius!

Here's a clever test of colour and text size, which probably won't work here, alas....

No, darn it, it didn't
!

John,

That's right - only bold, italy, and underline. Anything else is just too noisy and detracts from the content itself.

Hey Dave, I want to go to "italy"!

I know you meant to spell "italics", I'm just being critical because of gettin two English papers back today with several grammatical errors, including one or two on my spelling!

TC...

Spring Hill, FL(Zone 9a)

Hey tc, was it gettin that gotcha on the spellin?

TC, the error was intentional. :)

Dave

Oh, okay Dave. Maybe that excuse will work on my Brit Lit professor. ;~)

kikisdad; no, it weren't that, it was simple little words like "is". ;~o

"TC... I don't thinmk Dave allows much more than italics, bold and underline, so this site should give you enough of the basics."

I went there and tried the Bold and Italic and got message "Method Not Allowed". Am I doing something wrong or have things changed in over a year?

Thanks, Terry, cant you insert this at the top of this thread so we don't go through all this angst?, or maybe darius can edit her first post?

You're welcome to contact Darius and ask her to edit her post...the FAQ was created after this thread, which is why it wasn't posted at the outset ;o)

I hold down the shift key and hit 6 but when hold down shift you get the ^ than hold shift and do the underscore_ than hold shift and hit the 6 again ^ so its ^ _ ^looks like this with No spaces I just did it so you could see
What do you think did I do a good Job ^_^
