Writing on the forum

Hola a todos, I posted a question on the LSLC forum today in hopes of finding an answer to something in the grammar section here on RS. When writing on the LSLC forum one has the option to italicize, under line, use bold type etc. and it occurred to me that would be a nice option here. ¿Buena idea? Saludos, Ricardo

Well, I discovered accidentally how to get *bold face*. Just put stars (*) around the text. I don't know how to get <italicize> or underline. I am trying angle brackets around italicize to see if it changes anything.

Hmm...the angle brackets !vanished! from the &printed& text. Here I am putting (!) around vanished and (&) around printed.

He noté que cuando carácteres especiales, algunas veces estan aparacer en el forma extraña. Estoy de acuerdo con Ricardo que la capacidad de negrita y cursiva palabras sería buena.

I'll try to experiment here in this spot - bear with me. Has anyone tried html? <b>This text is bold</b> <i>This text is italic</i> <p>This is an <u>underlined word</u>.</p> <p>My favorite color is <del>blue</del> red.</p>

HTML. I can't write the commands without them being interpreted. If you go to the following web site though, I think you'll find the usage pretty straightforward. Let me know if you have a problem. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_formatting.asp

Are the accented letters here somewhere?

No. Formatted characters (bold, italic, ...) and special characters (language specific accents) are very different.

Aurora, try doing what I do a try. All the accented letters are in the course. As you come across a new one, copy and paste the character into a bloc notes file (or a Word file - whatever) that you keep on your PC desktop. When going through the course then, simply keep the file open and copy/paste the characters where you need them. I find doing this even faster than using the keyboard provided in the "Write It!" section.

I am using a Mac and can select Spanish in Preferences so that when I need an accent I just hold down that key and a little box pops up with all the choices for that letter numbered and while holding down the key you hit number 1 or 2 or whatever. Works well and again much faster than the keyboard provided.

Janway: On a Mac, you can also change to the US International - PC keyboard in settings, then you can type accented characters by first typing ' then the vowel, ñ by holding option and pressing n, ¿ by holding option, shift and ?, and ¡ by holding option and pressing !. I have used this method for several months and like it.
