    So....are you saying size matters?????

    Here is a website that explains how the UBB code works, but also shows the different font options, such as font type, size, color.

    I know a little bit about that. I got 2 1/2 inches chopped off in the day room at Creedmore not too long ago.

    Italicizing is nothing compared to messing with size, though.

    jl's got it......leave the forward slash off of the first bracket. You do include it in the second.

    You don't put a forward slash in the first bracket. You just put "".

    Encase the words you want to Italicize in brackets with "i's"....like this

    [ i ]word(s) to be italicized[ / i ]

    but without the spaces. And make sure you remember to include the forward slash in the brackets at the end (like I have above).

    Among lots of other things that I don't know how to do*, I haven't a clue as to how one italicizes text on UG.

    Could someone please provide a simple step-by step explanation?

    Thanks in advance.




    *My natural tendency towards idiocy is legendary among those who know me in my personal life. The only things I really know anything about are carpentry, the law (provided its one of my specialities), birdwatching and astronomy. I draw a complete blank when it comes to anything else.
