Spice up your comments with HTML!

I made the diagram below to show bloggers how to use HTML code to spice up their comments.

The following sentence is spiced up with Bold, Italics, a Link and Blockquote:

Here is a fun blog  where truth is explored by using various methods of  triangulations.  I love this quote by e.e. cummings:

“Think twice before you think.”

The chart shows all the HTML code insertions I made to made that spiced up comment possible:

This is what my code looked like.  Go ahead, try to write some code in the comments.

  1. Hmm, I think my HTML was too complex Apparently images don’t work either. I do use HTML for emphasis from time to time though.

    I put the words “emoticon” here inside the brackets — you forgot to insert to act as anchors for the link.
    I don’t think images are allowed — but links to images (as I have done for you ) are cool.

  3. Good to know. Thanks!

    It would be nice if they had a preview option.
