You can use the following formatting options in Readable and Writable texts, as well as some of them in your Friends list status:
This is a Headline ================== This is _emphasis_ (typically italics)... this is **strong emphasis** (typically bold)... this is ~~strikethrough~~... this is ^^smaller or less important^^...
(You can escape the underscore, asterisk and tilde to not have this formatting be preceding with a backslash, like "\_".)
Colorize text by wrapping with -colorname- or -colorname back- like this:
This is -green-some colorful-green- text... This is -green back-some colorful background-green back- on text...
The following color names are available:
Rotate a part of your text by using the following syntax, degrees ranging from 5-355 in steps of 5 (this is supported in Readables and Writables, but not the Friends list):
This is -rotate10-some rotated-rotate10- text... This is -rotate180-some rotated-rotate180- text... This is -rotate350-some rotated-rotate350- text...
You can align your text to the center, or right, by using (in Readables and Writables, but not the Friends list):
-center-This is some text-center--right-This is some text-right-
Blink and Glow
You can make text blink and glow by using (in Readables and Writables, but not the Friends list):
-blink-This is some text-blink- -blinksoft-This is some text-blinksoft- -glow-This is some text-glow-
If you want to show upper and lower-case letters, use:
THIS IS SOME TEXT. -case-This is some text.-case-
