Thanks for your pointing me to the Frogprints URL's. While there I had a look at the link on scanning as well. My question is I'm intrigued as to how you set up a particular URL such as the Frogprints ones with a single word "here' to click on. How do do that bit of magic ?

Like this:

[u r l http://www.pcworld.co.nz/ ]PCWorld[/u r l]

(But remove the spaces out of the word URL within the brackets, so it appears like this:

PCWorld

HTH

(I had to add the spaces into the word URL so that you'd be able to see it, otherwise all you'd see is the link again :)

Cheers

Mike.

In danger of overkill, click on the HELP link (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/help.jsp) in the PF1 toolbar. Have a look at the "How can I format text in posts" section :D

Touche, the old # trick B-). I know when I'm beat :D.

What I do think would be a good enhancement is to have the Help link opened a new window, as people would usually click on this to find formatting or emoticons etc, so you cant open them both at once. :-(

Without right clicking and going "Open in new Window" of course ;-)

Try holding down shift when clicking on the link.
