Now for the content

There are 2 ways of using the buttons, text highlight first or use the button first.
1. If you click first, the bbcode will be inserted in the page. [b][/b]
    You can type the text you want between the codes. [b]Type text here[/b].
2. Type your text first then select/highlight it. You can then click   ,   ,  
to get bold, underlined italics.

Some simple rules to follow
1. Code starts with [...] and ends with [/...]
    The code characters are inserted between the brackets e.g. [b]text[/b] and [img]http://location of image[/img]
2. I tend to copy code in notepad to fine-tune then copy back to the post.
    Sometimes the Internet fails to upload the post, at  least I have a copy.
