Here are a few tips on writing a comment:.

When replying to a comment, please always mention to whom and to which comment you are replying; for example:

Hi Son of perdition (#666).

You might also make that bold (or “strong”), like I just did (see below).

If you want to enhance your comment with italics, links, bold, and other formatting, you may use HTML. From wordpress.com.

HTML code always starts and ends with angled brackets, < and >. Anything inside a pair of angled brackets is an HTML tag. Tags are predefined HTML commands that specify how your post will look and behave.

For example, to italicize a word, we use the <em> tag, which is short for emphasis.

To open a new tag, you simply type the tag you want to use just before the text you wish to change in some way: <em>. When you want to end that effect, you insert a closing tag, which is the same tag but with a slash: </em>.

Let’s try writing some simple HTML!

Be careful! The most important thing to remember about HTML is that for every opening tag, < >, you MUST have an equivalent closing tag, </>. If you forget to close a tag, your formatting can turn into a mess!

Formatting text

Here are examples of how to make these changes to your text:

To place a block quote:

<blockquote>For 50 years, WWF has been protecting the future of nature. The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally.</blockquote>

To make text bold:

<strong>bold text here</strong>

For italics:

<em>italic text here</em>

For underline:

<u>underlined text</u>

For strikethrough:

<strike>strikethrough</strike>

To add a link, we use the <a> tag (the a is short for anchor).

Here is an example of an anchor tag:

<a href="http://www.wordpress.com">Start blogging on WordPress.com</a>

URL

Here is what that anchor tag will look like on your site:

Start blogging on WordPress.com

Here’s another HTML tutorial site.
