In the absence of Using ReunionTalk, I don't really know where to post this, but I opted for here.

I have been trying, in another thread, to get my offering to include a word in italics. If I do what one does in Pages or TextEdit (Apple+i), then, amazingly, it launches Mail - what was the person thinking that set up that? No other combination of keys seems to work. If I write the italicised phrase in Pages or TextEdit and drop it in, ReunionTalk removes the italics. Are we not allowed to use them?

This is all explained in the ReunionTalk Help link, near the top of each ReunionTalk page.

OK Wise guy you say....

To start italics put

leftSquareBracket i rightSquareBracket like this but with only 1 i

to stop italics

leftSquareBracket forwardslash i rightSquareBracket like this but with only 1 i

This page

http://www.reuniontalk.com/doc/RThelp.html

which is under the ReunionTalk Help link at the top of this page offers other formatting suggestions too.

Cheers

Right - thanks! Really straightforward then!

It's not the fault of this forum. Web pages don't get to define their own shortcut keys*, so every page uses Safari's set. In this case command-I is set to Mail Contents of This Page (File menu).

But I do see your point...

*Well, not the command-x variety.

Common practice for Web forums, especially forums run on vBulletin (as this one is). It's sort of a cut-down version of HTML (which would do italics <i>this way</i>.)
