LOL! It took me a while to figure it out as 13-yo son told me how.

You user HTML codes surrounded by angle brackets (< and >)

You put a "beginning" code where you want the format (Underline, etc.) to start and an "ending" code where you want it to end. The "ending code is the same as the beginning code except you precede it by a slash (/)

Some Codes are:

Bold: strong
Underline: u
Italic: i
Superscript: sup

The following are included in the "font" code:
Color: color = "name of the color, e.g., red, blue, etc.
Font: face = "name of the font e.g., arial"
Size: size = "how much smaller/bigger than normal e.g, -1, +2"

Some examples. Note: take out the space between the bracket and the code. I had to put them in so it would show up instead of using the code!

< strong>Bold< /strong> you...Bold
< u>Underline< /u> you...Underline
< i>Italic< /i> you...Italic
< font color = "blue">Blue< /font> you...Blue
< font face = "arial">Arial< /font> you...Arial
< font size = "+2">Larger< /font> you...Larger
< font color = "red" face = "arial">Arial in red< /font> you...Arial in red

I hope this isn't too "tech-y".....

RE: idiot-proof paint how-to? (walls) (Follow-Up #6)

I agree with the tips above, especially do not skimp on brushes and rollers. Find small containers that can be used for small amounts of paint for touch ups when you get wall dings, etc., and keep a small brush handy for that purpose.
I always wrap my brushes and roller in plastic, put into plastic bags and into thew freezer. Take them out in advance so they can thaw a bit and they will be fine to continue your project with. I've had brushes in the freezer for 2 years, reusing them as I worked my way painting through the house. Even oil based paints are fine in the freezer - just wipe off any excess moisture before using.
