How DO you

italicize or make bold a word in a post? If I hit Ctrl-I ro -B, I flip to some pop-up or other. What is the secret?

At the bottom of this thread there are the forum rules, on the last line there is a link to the vbcodes which are used to format text.

[i]Around words to make them italicised[/i]

[b]Around words to make them bold[/b]
