    I'm assuming you changed (or tried to change) formatting by pasting in formatted text or by altering the HTML via the button? Note that recent versions of IE (and possibly other browsers as well) seem to ignore simple FONT tags. I find that adding DIV with a STYLE attribute works, though. That's what I have done with this reply (posted in the web interface, using the HTML button to edit the text format).

    Usually, though, I post messages via the Community Bridge and a newsreader. I find that Windows Live Mail works best (in that respect at least).

  • Formatting is limited. By design so that there aren't a lot of different looking fonts/text/colors/sizes... thus making it hard to read. Thanks!
