Well, I’ve had enough! I want to be stylish and cool. I want to quote other dopers, I want to give links, I want to be in bold baby! And I’m going to do this all on my own. No asking for help, no looking at instructions, and damnit no preview!
Have I gone crazy you ask? I don’t think so, I should be able to figure this out since my major in college is Computer Science! So I need some of you pro-dopers to rate me on my first vB code performace.
[li]Style[/li][li]Accuracy of Code[/li][li]Correct Usage[/li][/list=1]
So as one smart person probably said
You could email me (email@example.com),or just do it the easy way and rate my performance by replying here
Well, personally, I find underline to be silly. Use italics instead.
Also there are a few things you’re missing. They aren’t in the vB code link, but were added for the scientific types in GQ and stuff. Without them, we could never talk about H[sub]2[/sub]O or how e=mc[sup]2[/sup].
Though it seems to depend on the browser you are using (for viewing, not for submitting, of course), you can get small text by interlocking the [**sub] and [**sup] functions. So tell me [sup][sub]if it works for you[/sub][/sup].
When it works, the text is small but the baseline is maintained instead of pushing the lines above or below it (depending on whether you used [**sub] and [**sup], of course) away. Neat.
I also tested the limits of the [**quote] function, which I think ended up being around 12 or so nested quotes. God how I would love to have an argument so complicated as to require that! I think I would quit posting forever, and retire as king of the world (Emperor Norton was my grandaddy ;)).
