Suggestion for your blogs

I don't have a blog, but I read and post on several. I'm also pretty ignorant of HTML formatting. One of the blogs I follow recently put this handy formatting key right before the comments section. It shows up with every article.

HTML Formatting Tips

Italics - <em>Your text</em>
Bold - <strong>Your text</strong>
Insert image* - <img src="">
Insert link - <a href="">Text of your link</a>
*Please do not insert images over 400px wide and 50KB in size. Thanks.

I'd love to see more blogs do this.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

Some blog and forum programs have those formatting features like B, I, U, links, built in, like BF. I think too, the webmaster or blog owner can add them if they wish.

For blogs that do not have the formatting buttons, you can make a cheatsheet for yourself with the basic html codes. The html codes should be the same for all blogs.

<I> </I> also works for italics. B works for bold and U works for underlining. gotta love HTML 1.0

Although I still write a lot of HTML by hand, I make gratuitous use of Blogger's quick buttons for formatting

I would have thought the first suggestion would be a link back to the forums.
