I've noticed that people will sometimes have text in different colors in their profiles.  How do I do this?  I don't see that option in the little toolbar.

The ones at the bottom are called blinkies. There are some sites that you can find them on, and add them to your signature.

Do a search for blinkies on Google and you can find some information on them. I also think there is a tutorial on them in the Tips thread that is the red sticky one in the forum.

Diane - thanks for your help...I know about the blinkies, I should have been more clear.  What I mean is on someone's profile page (like when you click their screen name)...sometimes the text of their profile info or notebook entries is in color.  Any idea about how to do that?

if BBC code is alowwed, just type [color=green] then it should show up green [/color]

I don't know if it is html or bbc code, as I haven't tried it.;ets see if it works!

you can also do [i] for italics [/i]

and [b]for bold[/b]

no bbc here I guess

but it is typing in italics here...weird.

now strike through

Type something in color in  MS Word  and then select it and copy, and  then paste it in the Forum.
