Sorry, I forgot how italics work here.

Styling Your Post

Yes, you too can now use bold and italic (even bold italic if you are really clever!) type in your board posts! Fancy!

For those of you who know HTML, just use the standard opening and closing HTML tags when you write your post. The rest of us will need that explained. At the beginning of the text you want to enhance, type for bold, and for italic. At the end of the enhanced text, type for bold, or
for italic, whichever you used (using both tags creates bold and italic text, of course).

Inserting a hyperlink is even simpler. Just type or paste it in. The post page will automatically change anything that starts with "www." or "http://" into a link. You don't have to do any fancy HTML formatting.

PRE tags are also supported for table data or ASCII art. Just use
 and 
surrounding the text. For word sentences within those tags, you will need to enter your own line breaks, or the post will be too wide to fit on the screen.
