My laptop only gives me script choice when I am in
microsoft works and it still doesn't let me go BIG.
(but it gives me 12 choices of script.
I am doomed to be small!!! lol :-)

You can type the html code yourself, like this:

<h1>This is heading 1</h1>
<h2>This is heading 2</h2>
<h3>This is heading 3</h3>

<font color="red" size="3">This is some text!</font>
<font color="blue" size="2">This is some text!</font>
<font color="green">This is some text!</font>

This text contains <SUB>subscript</SUB> text.
This text contains <SUP>superscript</SUP> text.

See how eeeeezie!

Phil I used to go to a website to insert a picture into a comment, I can not remember how I created the link. Can you help me?

We are no longer able to insert photos into our posts here. They changed the site. I wish Greta would have them change it back but I think that the images took up too much server space.

Start with <

them img src=

then you put in the location of the uploaded photo http://www.

then close with another >

The only space in there is between img and src.

Kathryn, you can't use those letters in combination. For a while you could not use the word gift because of the (gif)
It's silly

And I had typed out an edit, spacing everything. But then the site locked up and wouldn't let me in.

The problem is this is a very old style (software-wise) board. Security issues are a big concern, as could be server speed. I have a friend that wrote his own code for his board and had to take out the use of apostrophe's due to security issues. Crazy.

I don't know how many things they've blocked here for security reasons, and how many they've blocked for file size/server speed reasons. They allow uploads of photos in the expressions area, but maybe they can control that better?

Start with <

then enter i m g (with no spaces) followed by one space, then s r c (with no spaces)

follow this with = (no spaces)

then you put in the location of the uploaded photo, like http://imageevent.com/kathryn_in_mn/june2003trip/avalonreefclub?p=35&b=-1&m=-1&c=3&w=1&s=1&n=1&l=0&z=4 (no spaces)

then close with another >

The only space in there is between i m g and s r c.

I had to spread those out because this site will not allow either of those three letters in a row together.

it was nice when we could add photos to our posts.
Who knows why they changed it, probably just to piss us off!
