How-To: Text Style Guide for dAHow-To: Text Style Guide for dA4 years ago in Other More Like This
Okay so there's probably guides like this out there but I wanted to make my own. So, for those who have been wondering how to make your text in comments stylized (like bold, italic, etc.), here's a handy guide to tell you how to do just that.
First, in order to make text appear a certain way other than the default, you will need to use what are called HTML Tags. For each of these tags, there needs to be an opening and closing tag around the text (single word, multiple word, or whole paragraph) that you want to stylize (the opening tag before the word, the closing tag after the word). An opening tag looks like this (without spaces): < > with a letter or multiple letters in between the brackets and a closing tag looks like this: < / > also with a letter(s) in between the brackets, after the "/". For example, a Bold tag would look like this (without spaces): < b >word(s) go here< /b >
Below I have put some basic ones, there are more but I either don't know/forgot them or I didn't want to
