The paragraph signal gives you a paragraph break, and it's not necessary

to close it. The line br
eak signal gives you a manual line return without extra space, and here, again, it's not necessary to close it.

Font tags work for bold, italics, showing text with strikethrough marks, and underlining. Subscript
subscript and superscript superscript also work.

Normal text on an html page wraps to both sides of the available space as this sentence does.
Though html automatically eliminates tabs and more than one space between characters, there is an option for setting a full paragraph apart.

This command is called "blockquote." It acts as displayed here by increasing both margins.

This will give you a highlighted comment:
This is a comment for your consideration.
This will give you a highlighted comment:
[table border=0][tr][td bgcolor=yellow][font color=darkblue]This is a comment for your consideration.[/font][/td][/tr][/table]
These commands will allow you to create tables:
HeadingAnother Heading
row 1, cell 1row 1, cell 2
row 2, cell 1row 2, cell 2


heading
1 2 3 4
under 123 under 4

Note: After you've made your table, remove all the returns between lines of the table to avoid having a large blank space under your table as the board puts in the returns on top of those created by the table.
For Example, note the extra space between the "~" markers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
23

These will allow you to create tables:[table border="1"][tr][th]Heading[/th][th]Another Heading[/th][/tr][tr][td]row 1, cell 1[/td]
[td]row 1, cell 2[/td][/tr][tr][td]row 2, cell 1[/td][td]row 2, cell 2[/td][/tr][/table]

[br][b]Note:[/b] After you've made your table, remove all the returns to avoid having a large blank space under your table as the board puts in the returns on top of those created by the table.

Links to images are generally preferred over placing images directly in the text of a post. Links to files ending in jpg, png, etc., are all translated instantly into embedded images unless you add a space within the URL (http://www. fmwriters.com/gifs/board-art/An10302.gif). In the rare event that you desire the image itself visible (when teaching a class, for instance), post the link directly . Make sure you own the image or that it is public domain so as not to violate copyright. Links to images are generally preferred over placing images directly in the text of a post.

Here's the neat short link that doesn't show the "http" stuff:

Do You Know What You Want From a Critique?

(Here, again, the "www" is broken by a space to prevent it from creating the link instead of demonstrating HOW to create the link.)
