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... 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?

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
