Example of the new Text Format ToolWe have now added a text-formatting tool to help members customize their articles and profiles. This tool, which currently only works in JavaScript-enabled versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, will help members maximize the visual appeal of their articles.

What the tool does is allow members to format their articles and profiles with proper HTML in a manner similar to that of using a normal word processor. This makes it easier for members who are not proficient in web technology to still find a convenient way for their information to look appealing on the web.

We have plans to extend this tool to other browsers such as Firefox. The tool has not yet been tested on a Macintosh.

Members can learn more about using the tool by logging in and then going to the Frequently Asked Questions page.
