How to do italics and other fun text stuff

Scroll down to the post by mwoods.

Here's how we can convert regular text to italics, color, bold, underline, strike, and so on.

The key is using these brackets < >

These ( ) brackets are used for illustration only

To begin italics: write i between a set of <>
To stop italics: write /i between a set of <>

To convert to green text: between <>brackets, write: font color=green
To stop green text: between <> brackets, write: /font color


To convert an http address to a link, use this master string, and insert your URL and name of link where indicated:

(a href="")Name of link/description here(/a)

Replace ( ) brackets with <> brackets
Remove all "

For example, convert this address to a link:

Insert it into the master string
Insert name of link
Replace all ( ) with < >

(a href= good question about italics(/a)

....and when replacing the illustration ( ) brackets with the correct < > brackets, GW converts the string to a link:

A good question about italics

Hope it works for you too!

Hi Ppod.

People can also open their link in a new window with:

(A HREF="" TARGET="_blank")description of the link goes here(/A)

again, replacing ( ) with < >.
