To underline text is the same as for bold and italics, except the pertinent letter is "u" rather than "b" or "i".

To indent text like I did above with the quote from Johnson's new book is the same as when adding the italic, bold, underline commands. But in place of the one letter of the alphabet at the beginning and end, it's a whole word: blockquote.

Another I often use is the full line to separate between text/paragraphs, particularly if I'm quoting a passage, or article I'm setting apart from my thoughts. To do this rquires only the first HTML tag at the beginning, i.e., the symbol "<" and then the letters "hr" and then the symbol ">". B stands for bold, i for italics and u for underline, but don't ask me what the hr stands for (hard 'ritten line, lol?).

This board appears to disallow turning off HTML or I'd write the commands out in full.

Just as with underline, superscript and subscript is accomplished. For super the code for the tags is sup and for subscript it's sub.

Let me try to hoist this word and lower this word to check via the preview function at the board. Just checked to see it's working. The sup command is great for numbered footnotes within the body of text.

Those are a few that come to mind that I use on a frequent basis. I got out of the habit of using HTML codes after Anyboard and Aimoo systems dumbed it down via click on the picture (where I still struggle at times).

Hope this makes sense. Writing with clarity is not my strong point (in case you haven't noticed). ;P


Other fun things are colored font commands, scrolling text from left or right, like a ticker-tape marquee style, strikethrough for text, help text to annoy others by making it BLINK!
