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)

Step 1: 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.

<h2>big text is not working</h2>

Doesn't work for me (or perhaps it just doesn't show up on my browser, Firefox on Mac).<br /> <br /> ~~did this work?~~<br />

<h2>big text</h2>
Unfortunately, big text feature had be disabled for comments... :-( But it will work on forums and instructables.
whats that mean?
The big text will only work for your instructables, but It will not work on comments.
<h2>why has it been disabled?</h2>
