    If I figure it out I'll let you know.

    edit: using ordinary html code doesn't do it.

    I have no clue. Perhaps you should look elsewhere.

    nope who knows

    Wow, I just guessed at that. Not too complicated.

    Edit: Since I'm not quite as heartless as Xanthos, why don't you click reply and quote on his message?

    Hey Frank, this is it:

    Open and close bold: [b.]text[/b.]

    Open and close italic: [i.]text[/i.]

    Open and close bold italic: [b.][i.]text[/b.][/i.]

    Hope that sorts it

    PS: pay no mind to Xanth - he's everyone's arsehole.

    oops PS - leave out the fullstops - I had to insert them to enable you to see the command string.

    Shouldn't that be [b.][i.]Text[/i.][/b.]?

    Thanks Skeeter, I knew someone like you would come through with some reasonable advise. I've seen Xholes act before and find it as tiring as others who I will not denigrate the site by posting their name(s). He lives in a cut and paste world.

    And it took PMSmaster three edits to get his drivel posted.

    Thanks again!

    Frank, I like your sense of humor. You crack me up. But Zandermania left you a clue. It went over my head, but Cms solved it. And he left you another clue. Skooter tried to mess you up. Aiko solved her cunning misdirection ploy. And I (the only almost creditable one here) confirmed it. Sorry it took us so many edits but detective work is a science, and great science it takes time and experimentation. If you chose to be led astray by a painted up witchy city woman. Go ahead. Muuuuhahaha. You apparently never understood the word teamwork.

    You are right, my apologies to all. A little patience on my part would go much further wouldn't it?

    But I don't see how Skeeter tried to mess me up. She was the first to give a forthcoming answer. My thanks to her most certainly.

    But never the less she gave a partially wrong answer. Just to throw you, I am sure..(I'm kidding of course, I do that for effect) You should know better than to trust a serpent. Hisssss. She is very sly that one. ;-)

    I could have edited it less, but decided to help you. I will never help you again so that I can avoid having an overabundance of edits.

    Actually cash, it matters not what you close first. Either way works, as well you know.
