Re: primer on use quotes and italics for blog postings?
<i>this will be in italics</i>
<b>this will be in bold</b>
<u>this will be underlined</u>
To post a URL, especially a long one:
<a href="website address here">Link name here</a>
If it's a short URL (i.e. http://www.wikipedia.org/
) you can just copy+paste the URL, and the software will turn it into a hyperlink.
To post an image (disabled in the comments section
<img src="image url">
There is nothing in html to quote. I use blockquote, which is a single black line to the left of the quoted post.
<blockquote>quoted text here</blockquote>
I think that's about all you can do in the forum comments.
