    Ok, I just accidentally discovered this, and wanted to share in case you hadn't found them yet either.

    When you're composing your post, if you highlight a word/sentence/whatever, and hit Control+B, it adds the bold tags around your highlighted selection. Control+I is italics, Control+U is underline, and so on.

    Just a quick tip for those using those codes a lot.

    I just discovered that the other day! I use those keyboard shortcuts in Word all the time, so it's cool to be able to use them here too

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    Do you mean that it is easier to do than to type in the paranthesis each times around each part? . That isn't working for me at all. It throws me into Favorites. I have a strange machine.

    In case someone experiences the same problem, I find it easier to highlight the section you want and then hit the Bold "B", "I", or "U" that is in the toolbar above the reply screen. Just under Message: and below Fonts, to the left.
