Picture of How to do word formating on instructables
On this instructable, I will show my "secrets" of word formating on instructables.
I am doing this to end all of the people that is begging on comments on how to format a word, like a lot of people wants to know how to do monospace text but they don't know how to make it or format it properly...
I will show you how to do it.

Heres a list of formatted words that I will show you how to make it.

Italic text

Bold text

Big text


Small text
Very small text
strikethrough text

  • Bullet points

(upside down text)
Monospace

Step 1: Italic text

Picture of Italic text
Making italic text is easy, put two apostrophe on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
''This is italic text.''
And you will get this.

This is italic text.

Step 2: Bold text

Picture of Bold text
Making bold text is similar making italic text, but with an extra apostrophe on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
'''This is bold text.'''
And you will get this.

This is bold text.

Step 3: Big text

Using big text is fun! To make it, put an equal on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
=This is big text.=
And you will get this.

This is big text.


If you add more equals on both sides of a sentence, the size of the text will be different...

This is big text.

This is big text.


Please note making big text in comments will not work, it used to work, but not any more...

Step 4: Small text

Picture of Small text
Making small text can be also fun...

To make it, put a caret on both side of a sentence.
OR
You can put two [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma_(punctuation) comma] on both side of a sentence.
OR
You can put five equals on both side of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
^This is small text.^,,This is small text.,,=====This is small text=====
And you will get this.

This is small text.
This is small text.
This is small text

Step 5: Strikethrough text

Picture of Strikethrough text
Strikethrough text is a pretty cool text to use...

To make it, put two tilde on both sides of a sentence.

Type it in plain text like this.
~~Strikethrough text~~
And you will get this.

Strikethrough text

Did you copy this from somewhere else??

flash powder is pyrotechnic composition, a mixture of oxidizer and metallic fuel which burns quickly and if confined will produce a loud report. it is widely used in theatrical pyrotechnics and fireworks (namely salutes, eg. cherry bombs, m-80s, and firecrackers), and was once used for flashes in photography.

different varieties of flash powder are made from different compositions; most common are potassium perchlorate and aluminium powder. sometimes, sulfur is included in the mixture to increase the sensitivity. early formulations used potassium permanganate instead of perchlorate.

flash powders, specifically chlorate/perchlorate ones, are unique in that they produce no gas products (all solid products), which means that they are not explosives by scientific definition. in that regard, they are similar to thermite mixtures. they are also used in military pyrotechnics, when production of large amount of noise, light, or infrared radiation is required; eg. missile decoy flares and stun grenades.

flash powders - especially involving aluminium and chlorates - are often highly sensitive to friction, heat/flame and static electricity. even as little as 0.1-10 millijoules spark can set off certain mixtures.
