Several questions. Some of which I have found/read answers to.
has good code when it comes to changing text color, within a post. But I wonder why simple html code doesn't work. For instance <i> word </i> shows up that way, doesn't italicize the word. I can use the italics feature from the menu to do that, but I'd prefer to do it within the post with straight html, easier. And I wonder about changing colors from the menu too, rather that using the span feature to do that. I mean maybe I am asking why, as a wysiwyg editor, the menu line doesn't work the way it would in Word or Yahoo mail, or anything else?
I'm still looking for a way to turn links into links too, lol, without the code showing. Can anyone refer me to the section of the codex that explains how to make html with without it turning into the &lgt stuff? I mean just accept the <> tags within the document. I'm practicing with the code feature and preview, but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and I'm wondering why is all. I'd like to use the visual editor, and still easily change colors and italics and add href links within the document and have it accept those html codes, not print them as part of the document. Just need to know where to look to find out how to do that. Thanks! :^) gene
