7. hmmm

b = bolds the highlighted
i = italicizes the highlighted text
u = underlines the highlighted text
link = add a hypertext link
excerpt surrounds the highlighted text with an excerpt block:
excerpt


/blockquote surrounds the highlighted text with block quotes:
block


Not really sure what close tags does.

9. I wish we could have strike-through

I'd have lots of fun with strike-through.

But baby steps, I suppose...

14. basically drawing a line through words

It signifies one of two meanings. In ink-written, typewritten, or other non-erasable text, the words are a mistake and not meant for inclusion. When used on a computer screen, however, it indicates recently deleted information. It can also be used for humorous purposes; for example: "John Doe is an idiot (strike-out 'idiot') not so intelligent."

In plain text scenarios where markup cannot be used, Unicode offers a number of combining characters that achieve similar effects. The "long stroke overlay" (U+0336) results in an unbroken stroke across the text,

Separate: A̶B̶C̶D̶E̶F̶G̶H̶I̶
Combined: A̶B̶C̶D̶E̶F̶G̶H̶I̶

while "short stroke overlay" (U+0335) results in individually struck out characters:

Separate: A̵B̵C̵D̵E̵F̵G̵H̵I̵
Combined: A̵B̵C̵D̵E̵F̵G̵H̵I̵

Similarly, "short solidus overlay" (U+0337) results in diagonally struck out letters:

Separate: A̷B̷C̷D̷E̷F̷G̷H̷I̷
Combined: A̷B̷C̷D̷E̷F̷G̷H̷I̷

11. "Close Tags" should be for when you start many tags

like this

I just hit the 'b' then 'i' then 'u' and then 'close tags' and all the slashy tags showed up in the right order at the end of that first string, and then again for including this quoted text

15. ah, that's why I wasn't getting it

I don't start tags, instead I highlight some text and then hit the attribute button which adds both the open and close tags in one swell foop.
