I know this has been posted a zillion times and even very recently, but I don't remember how to do italics. Is is (i)italics(i)? Well, if this shows up in the post, I guess I'll know what it is not!
this is how you do it....
Just put an i in the brackets before whatever it is you want in italics and then afterwards to make it stop you just put /i in the brackets. So it will look like this,except you use where I have ( ).
(i) A big noreaster is headed here and I want to throw up.(/i)
I was wondering about this the other day so I'll try it (i) now(/i).
Oh wait, you use what?
Oh wait, the funny brackets. Okay, trying again now .
One day i might even try uploading a picture.
Thanks Pidge for asking about this. I was stupidly allowing myself to remain frozen in some kind of technologically challenged mindset.
thought I'd join the game too .
You will need to open a photobucket.com account. It's free, and easy, but not free and easy.....
bold letters (b) (/b)
underlined words (u) (/u)
words in color color> ( fontcolor="green") (/font color) you can put any color in there

could anyone here possibly be talking about (parenthesese) Steve in Baltimore County.

I remember playing with HTML here over the years with some amusing results. I think the code in each person's message is "turned off" at the end of the message now, but it didn't always. We'd have threads where the responses went on in boldface or italics or the color green for two or three more posts before someone caught it and did a </>

Sigh!! I 've been given all the instructions for using HTML and told to sit down for a day and practice,practice,practice. That sounds like such hard work, when all i want to do is stroll through Garden Web and read online newspapers.
But someday i will, just not today.
Okay, I just checked in and I'll try to do all this stuff. Here goes.
(i)hello(/i). (u)I'm fine(/u). (fontcolor="red")How are you?(/fontcolor)
I've always wanted to (s)learn how(/s)know how to strike out words.
Huh? What am I doing wrong? Clearly I am missing some simple step. Help!
do those same things again, pidge, but use instead of ( ).
hello. I'm fine. How are you?
I've always wanted to learn how know how to strike out words.
Well, I'll be darned, it worked.
Yay! Congratulations Pidge. Now can someone tell me why I can do italics but not color?
