How to add some color to your posts and annoy a bunch of other DUers at the same time!

[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Welcome Noobies!

I am Lost, and today I am going to teach all of you how to add some color to your posts and annoy some other DUers at the same time!

In General what you need to do is put these tags in front of the parts of your post you want to color[/font][/font]

[div class="excerpt" style="margin-left:1em; border:1px solid #bfbfbf; border-radius:0.4615em; box-shadow:3px 3px 3px #999999;"][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][b][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]YOUR MESSAGE HERE [/font][/b][/font]



[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]The font-family part tells your computer what font family to use. In my case Georgia. If the computer reading your script does not support that script it will display[/font] [font face='Brush Script MT' size=5 color=black][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5]Brush Script MT[/font] [/font][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]in teal, and if not that the oh so hated [/font][font face='comic sans MS' size=4 color=black][font face='comic sans MS' size=4 color=black]comic sans MS [/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]font. If none of those work it will then use whatever fantasy font family your computer does support.

The size tells it what size to use and color what color to make the font. You can change[/font] [font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson]fonts[/font][/font][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]multiple times within each other.

If you want to be lazy you could use [/font][font size=5 color=scarlet face='Brush Script MT'][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5 color=scarlet]this[/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]instead but the font might not be supported by their computer and will default back to the normal script

I highly suggest if you use a font with spaces in it like [/font][font color=scarlet size=4 face=comic sans ms][font color=scarlet size=4 face=comic sans ms] Comic Sans MS [/font][/font] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]you put apostrophes before and after like this [/font][font size=4 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms'][font size=4 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms']'Comic Sans MS'[/font][/font]

[font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]I also suggest reading these links for more information:[/font][/font]

[font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] If done right this should give a little color to your posts and annoy some other DUers at the same time! I hope this [/font][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson]helped!!![/font][/font][/font] [/font]

Edit:[font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] [font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Yes, I know I used two of the most hated fonts on the internet. But I like them!!![/font][/font]

PS: [font style="font-family:georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal][font style="font-family:Georgia,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal] For anyone interested in trying this; just copying my post below the quote and pasting it into a reply and previewing it to see how it looks on your screen[/font][/font]

[/b][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=7 color=crimson]
[font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT','Lucida handwriting','forte',cursive;" size=7 color=crimson]See you on the boards![/font][/b][/font]

1. Why do you want to annoy a bunch of other DUers?

2. I don't

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=#009999]I just noticed it as a side effect of changing the font of my text.

I thought that might appeal to some people.[/font]

3. There is a shade of royal red and a tone of cobalt blue

That work so well when used together.

4. I find it difficult to read, especially on a smaller device.

But, if you like it... cool!

(not going to say anything about comic sans )
