How can I write in bold or italics?
Some html is allowed on the message board, and in the chat room. The general format for using html is to put an opening 'tag' before the thing you want to modify, and a closing 'tag' after it. For bold, use <b> to turn bold on, and </b> to turn bold off again. Similarly italics are turned on with <i>, and turned off again with </i>. Don't forget the ending tags, or you'll end up turning other people's messages bold, etc. Also, do not use > and < for anything other than html, or you may find that portions of your message get deleted. If you really need to display these symbols (as I do here), type "& g t ;" for ">" and "& l t ;" for "<" (without spaces in each case).
