I'm starting to think the way I do it is different than the way most everyone else does it.

...That is the question?

I'm = I = you, Visconti?

Everyone else = the LTPF members? The human race?

Speed of solving puzzles relevant? Posting on puzzles relevant? Puzzle titles? Puzzle statements?

Formatting text relevant?

Do you use the <bracketed> html </tags>? Instead of the \ stuff {that looks like this}?

i thought this would go fast, but not quite this fast.

*** SPOILER ***

Simply put, when I bold something, I use <b> and </>.I saw your instructions on a recent post talking about the \ { editing and I didnt realize you could do that.

And as for the title (get ready for it)... to bold, I use 2 b's instead of 1 b. Ahem.

hahaha! Of course, there's no way to tell how someone bolds something...I didn't know about the other kind! Very clever and fun :-) love the puzzle too!

::rimshot::

ugh... You're so punny, Visconti ;-)

I actually use a combination of the two -- not always the same... I learned how to write out HTML code, so I sometimes use the <></> tags, but I think the {} tags are a bit more efficient (plus there are some formatting things on the forum that you can't do with <> tags).

On another note, you can apparently mix them... In honor of Visconti, I was using <> tags to italicize, but when I previewed the message, it parsed my } as the end tag for the italics (and changed my </lowercase'i'> (that now fell in un-italicized text) into a }. Had to go find the thing about "escaping" in the formatting section to get them to be text... Ahh, computers.

I use the html tag/angle bracket method. You can sometimes see a person's preferred method, when they make a typo in the formatting characters, making them visible. That's how I discovered there was another way, though I've not bothered to learn it.
