Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?
Yes for now you can use HTML tags in the body of the message only.
Here are a few simple HTML tags you can use:
<BR> = New line <P> = New paragraph
<B> = start Bold text </B> = end Bold text
<I> = start Italics </I> = end Italics
<font color=red> = start Font Color </font> = end Font tag
If you use HTML in your post, you'll need to include <BR> & <P> tags.
Please use care when using HTML in your post, if it gets out of hand we'll have to turn it off.
