I tried the normal method for message boards, and it didn't work.

This seems to be as good a place as any for a test post of what works:

UNDERLINE
BOLD
STRIKETHROUGH
ITALICS

I tried , [move], and
    , but none of them worked. I think this board is set up only for a single font size and no animation.

    Some message board software goes overboard and allows all sorts of processor-hungry display methods. It's low-frills but not necessarily no-frills. I do like the ability to make bulleted lists though. I tried out one more thing - quotes are possible, although it's indented and not boxed or highlighted in some way.

After I get the server upgraded I'll be installing something a wee bit better than I'm using now. You can see a preview at http://blameitonlove.com.

I also tried [font size=n], but to no avail.

No, you can't enter html at all.

Well, italics and bold can be pretty handy, but as one who, by choice, gets all his email in plain text, and prefers Usenet format over Choose your Avatar-motion gif riddled web formats, I like this one fine. Hopefully whatever the new upcoming format is, it's not too glitzy....a bear gif bouncing across a message isn't going to add much to usefulness...

Cute. But can you make a bear that breaks into other peoples' posts and steals their stuff, then a ranger that gives them a ticket for improper word storage...?
