Use the following instructions, provided by zvi_likes_tv:
Font tag is deprecated! More correct is <span style="color:BLUE; background-color:YELLOW;"> Your comment </span>. Using the colors you like, of course.
But it is REALLY IMPORTANT that people specify a background color, in case people read their entries in ?style=mine, and they have an unexpected background color. Like black.
EDITED to make code visible.
Also <B> is deprecated! Preferred is <strong>.
Any questions or problems, post here, and we'll do our best to answer.
A couple of people have asked how to differentiation their text from the original when posting. This is the short version.
Note: do differnetiate your text. Bold or color preferred; italics may mix up with the text.
You did it in your program. It's pretty! You have colors/bold/sparklies. Okay, sparklies I cannot do. Color and bold I can.
Livejournal uses all standard html tags. So it's going to look something like this.
1.) Author writes blah blah blah.
2.) You comment!
For your commentary, place the < B > tag (remove the spaces). At the end, use < /B > to close your bolded text.
Same for colors. Before and after your text, place < FONT COLOR="008B8B" >. After your comment is done, close with < /FONT >. A list of hex color codes is here.
So it will look something like this.
Author talks about pretty things blah blah blah.
< B >You comment!< /B >
Author talks about more pretty things blah blah blah.
< FONT COLOR="008B8B" >You talk more about how you like it!< /FONT >
I cannot emphasize enough to remove the spaces between the < and FONT and < and B. That's just because lj autoformats to html.
Questions, comments, etc? Right here.
