How-To: Text Style Guide for dA
Okay so there's probably guides like this out there but I wanted to make my own. So, for those who have been wondering how to make your text in comments stylized (like bold, italic, etc.), here's a handy guide to tell you how to do just that.
First, in order to make text appear a certain way other than the default, you will need to use what are called HTML Tags. For each of these tags, there needs to be an opening and closing tag around the text (single word, multiple word, or whole paragraph) that you want to stylize (the opening tag before the word, the closing tag after the word). An opening tag looks like this (without spaces): < > with a letter or multiple letters in between the brackets and a closing tag looks like this: < / > also with a letter(s) in between the brackets, after the "/". For example, a Bold tag would look like this (without spaces): < b >word(s) go here< /b >
Below I have put some basic ones, there are more but I either don't know/forgot them or I didn't want to
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers--
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
