Maybe you could tell us what you're trying? Italics work on my Mac. Bold seems OK too. ;)

No difficulty here, I'm pretty much only ever on with 10.3 on a powerbook. I use Safari, even.

Stop using a mouse with only one button. :neener:

In all seriousness, are you having problems typing the codes for italics, links, etc. Or are the buttons that allow you to insert them without typing them giving you problems?

Odd...I'm a Mac 10.3 user and haven't had any issues with text formatting at all. Thus far I've not tried inserting pics, but can't see that would be an issue either.

Three Macs here. Two using OS10 and Safari. The third uses OS9 and Internet Explorer. No problems.

like when I click on (say) the big black B or I ,I get that little box but I cant get anything in the little box.
Also to insert photo's -on my old PC I would (right click?) and cut and paste the "properties" but I cant seem to use that. I am using a two button mouse &
I am using a 10.3.4...so I have to start typing in code? how about pics from news stories? how do I get the "properties"?

thanks!

Hello everybody.™

With a Mac it's only easier ;)

If you need Bold text, do this: [B ]x[/B ] and remove the spaces.

You have to first click in the JavaScript box before you can type in if unless the insertion point is already blinking.

how about pics from news stories? how do I get the "properties"?

Ya gotta do it like this: If you're using Safari, simply right-click (or Control-click) on the image to open it in a new window (or tabs if you configured that in the Preferences in the Safari menu) and copy the link in the new window. Then slam the icon with the mountain and the sun, and enter the address in. Or you could do it like this: [IMG ]x[/IMG ]

Ya' still gotta tell us wha' browser ya' usin', buddy! :)

On either Mac or PC, to use Bold, Italic, or Underline tags,
just highlight the text to be tagged and click on the appropriate formatting tag(s). If you want to use more than one tag, as in the prior example, highlight the text again and apply the next formatting tag. The same applies to using a different font, size, or color.

HTH.
