    How to strike out text in a contri? I can only see the bold, italic and underline buttons on the edition box, yet some people manage to bar their text.
    How to do it?
    Thx.

    Carlos--- A few months ago, Mike K did a custom implementation of the strikeout code, at my request. V Bullentin, the vendor of the forum software, has now caught up with us.

    Here are some of the codes they support:

    , , Bold / Italic / Underline
    [color] Color
    [size] Size
    [font] Font
    Highlight
    ,
    ,
    Left / Right / Center

    Let's see what it does to this text, first without, and then with, the 'code' tags:

    Silvia 22 years old Italiana Intelligent Charming
    Benjy 23 years old English Intelligent Has redeeming qualities

    Code:
    Silvia  22 years old     Italiana  Intelligent	Charming
    Benjy   23 years old     English   Intelligent   Has redeeming qualities
    There you have it Chicos!:)

    That is actually a song lyric from Mary Poppins. I had to memorize its spelling when I was a very little girl, and when I am old and demented and don't know my own name, I will still be able to spell Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay... Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay :D)

    OK, tg, how about "They're coming to take me away, haha, heehee, hoho ..." a catchy little number by that celebrated one-hit-wonder artist, Napoleon XIV. :p

    That one's really tough to get out of your head, get your head out of, head out of your g... :eek:

    PS: Don't know how I got into this thread (all my usual habits have been thrown by the lack of the Search function!), but I just noticed how old it is :eek: . Hope Supercal hasn't been stuck in your head all this time, tg :eek: , since nobody answered your cry for help back in March!!

    W :):)
