dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference.  Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work!  (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.)  :'D
 
I provided "working examples," which might make the codes easier to understand because you can see them in action. (Keep in mind that when you type html tags, the effects won't be visible until AFTER you hit "Preview" on your comment, journal, etc. I only made them visible for the purpose of demonstration.) Enjoy!!!
 

The following codes can be used in
comments, deviation descriptions, journals, and profile page widgets.


This will make bold text.
This will also make bold text.
This will make italicized text.

Playing With Text in dA [Semi-Tutorial] UPDATED
FONTS ON DEVIANTART
There are several things you can do with dA's text. You can use Italics, Bold, Underline, Strikethrough, and even change font face or font type. However, there aren't many directions on how to do these things. So, I'm going to give you a quick semi-tutorial on how to work these.
These features are easy enough to use once you know what you're doing. You just have to learn tags. You can visit this link to learn about some other common HTML tags.
The Simpleist Tags to Use Are:
< i > to begin italics and < /i > to end the italics
< strong > to begin bold and < /strong > to end the bold
< b > to begin bold and < /b > to end the bold
< u > to begin underline and < /u > to end the underline
< strike > to begin strike and < /strike > to end the strike
< s > to begin strike and < /s > to end the strike
< sup >
