This page is for those who would like to add a little emotion to their comments on wordpress sites like this one.
There will be more hints added like how to BOLD and Italic text as time allows 😀
Smileys. 🙂 😀 😆 😦 😥 😉 😳
Smileys are a bit of fun to help show the emotion of your comment and there are a number of them.
These instructions work on wordpress sites but won’t work on some other sites
Smileys are produced using colons (:) not semicolons (;).
They need at least two spaces before the first colon and after the last colon.
There should not be any spaces between the colons and the word between them.
The “sss” either side represents three spaces.
This is how they should look when written, and will appear in a comment.

To make a word or sentence or part thereof, stand out or to give it emphasis, you can make it Bold, or Italic, or Bold Italic.
In a comment you can make a word or an entire sentence bold by putting <b> directly before the word/sentence and </b> after the word/sentence
<b>Bold</b> = Bold
<i>Italic</i> = Italic
<b><i>Bold Italic</i></b> = Bold Italic
You can also underline a word or sentence, or part thereof in the same way
<u>underline</u> = Underline
To put the whole lot together <u><b><i>Underline, Bold, Italics</i></b></u> do this.
To put the whole lot together Underline, Bold, Italics do this.
Another option, for effect is
