Who wants to play with italics, bold and underlining in the discussion board?

0

I learned how to bold, italicize, and underline text in Discussion Board posts from our friend IchthyosaurusRex. They’re called HTML tags. Since then I’ve had lots of fun with them! Here’s the technique: 1. Start the special effect(s): • Start with an open bracket: < • Put in the letter of what you want to do: i for italics, b for bold, or u for underline • Next put a closed bracket: > 2. Type the words to which you want these special effects to apply 3. End the special effect(s): • Put in an open bracket: < • Then put a slash: / • Then put the letter of what you want to stop doing: i for italics, b for bold, or u for underline • Put in a closed bracket: > You can use any combination of the three, but when you “turn them off,” be sure to do them in the reverse order of how you started them. Here’s an example. If you wanted to bold, italicize, and underlined Askville in the following sentence on the Discussion Board, your tags would look like this: We all live on the Askville
