McGrath Where is Spancil Hill? (204* d) RE: Where is Spancil Hill? 04 May 98


To fill in the time until I get Spancilhill from Robbie, here are a couple of tips for formatting text on the threads or even emails.

They are just a couple of simple HTML commands.

----------------------------------------

"Line BReak" Command
<BR>

This skips you to a new line ..........handy for song lyric formatting. - e.g.

Goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>Goirim fhéin Micil ’s Máire,<BR>Goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>Siúd iad naCeannabháin Bhána.

Will look like this when posted to the thread;

Goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
Goirim fhéin Micil ’s Máire,
Goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
Siúd iad naCeannabháin Bhána.

----------------------------------------

"New Paragraph" Command
<P>

This skips you to a new line and leaves a space. - e.g.

Na Ceannabháin Bhána<P> Goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>Goirim fhéin Micil ’s Máire

Will look like this when posted to the thread;

Na Ceannabháin Bhána

Goirim fhéin, goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
Goirim fhéin Micil ’s Máire

----------------------------------------

"Bold" Command
<B>...text...</B>

Not to be confused with ..."Get your knickers off!" ; it gives you bold text for headings. - e.g.

<B>Na Ceannabháin Bhána</B><P>Goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>goirim fhéin,<BR>Goirim fhéin Micil 's Máire

Will look like this when posted to the thread;

Na Ceannabháin Bhána

Goirim fhéin, goirim fhéin,
goirim fhéin,
Goirim fhéin Micil 's Máire

----------------------------------------

"Italic" Command
<I>...text...</I>

Same as Bold but gives Italics. Useful for notes etc. - e.g.

<I>buairthín = spancil</I>

Will look like this when posted to the thread;

buairthín = spancil

----------------------------------------

Lower case or capitals will work fine;

<p> or <P>, <br> or <BR>, <b>...txt...</b> or <B>...txt...</B>, etc.
