I Wonder How We Underline A Word? -- And Other Random Thoughts

Hmm? Does anyone know? There is no underline option here, and I don't see any shortcut for it either. Does anyone know a shortcut key?

Is everyone aware that we have a Magic Smoke/J-Land Hub blog here on blogger? I wanted to make sure that all have the address. Guido has been making entries there, and he is asking that all of us check our old journals lists to see if there is anyone we were accustomed to reading who has not journaled in a while. If so, please send him a link to their journal, their name, and/or their AOL screen name. He is trying to save as many dormant blogs as he can. Here is the link to Magic Smoke on Blogger: http://jlandhub.blogspot.com/.

We finally got my daughter's journal migrated over to Blogger. It took us several tries. At first her google email address wasn't being recognized. We tried everything that was suggested or that I could think of. Finally I went to my own email, pulled up that email from AOL with the migration link in it and clicked on it. I put her gmail address and password in from there and it worked! I don't know if it decided to work, if someone on the migration team did something to make it work, or if it had something to do with my doing it from my own browser and my own email -- surely not. Anyway, she's set up and has already been visited by several of her journal readers. She had fun playing around with the different templates and very quickly got the hang of everything. She even put up a play list on her sidebar. And thank you, Connie, for that great tag.

It's cool and rainy here today. Hopefully that will bring on the Fall colors full force!

My nephew, Jacob, about whom I've written before, made it safely to his work site in Africa. He is working on a project for The History Channel, a series where they are following the routes of certain expeditions. The one he will be working on is Stanley and Livingston. According to my sister (his mother) he, his luggage, and his equipment got there safely.

I'm finally getting around to a lot of journals and keeping up with many of them. If I haven't been by yet, I will, I promise.

I hope everyone has had a good week.

I'm afraid to check my blog reading level...I'll give it a try, but may not publish the results!

I can't insert how to do underlining in here because it involves HTML. Email on the way!

Jacob's assignment sounds very cool and exciting! I had a friend that worked out of Djoubti. He said it was kind of the armpit of assignments, lol.

highlight the word you want underlined and do control u. works like a charm.

Here is a web page with lots of things like underline. http://www.web-source.net/html_codes_chart.htm

Heather said...

If you highlight the word or phrase you want underlined, you can click Crtl + U and it will do it.

I'm glad things are getting done for you in this Bloggerland. I'm still poking around. I did use your link to Magic Smoke. Your Nephew's present assignment sounds fantastic. I hope he will give you info to post for us to read. My Regards, Bill.

Glad the blog made it over...yeah!! I wish I could help with the underline thing...but I've wanted to know too!! So many new things to learn here...think we'll ever figure it all out?

Pooh Hugs,
Linda

about underlining, the 'highlighting + Ctrl+U' approach didnt work for me :(
but you can click the "edit html" tab, and add < u > and < /u > respectively at the beginning and end of the part you want to underline.
cheerios

Thank you, Anonymous. It's strange, but sometimes it works for me and sometimes it doesn't.
