# Formatting Oddity

#### climbhi

Just noticed this and thought I would point it out. In order to get bold text you need to put (B)text(/B) where the () are actually brackets. This is different then the old forum where a lower case b would work. However here a lowercase (b) gives not bolded text. Though I'd point this out becuase in the vB code help section it does not distinguish the fact that you need to use capital B's to make bold text rather then lower case b's. In fact the examples it shows are wrong.

Yes, there are some formatting problems.
I was unable to write any SubScripts (we used (sub) in PF 2.0 (with the brackets instead of () ), but now it does not seem to work !)
And as it is well-known, the SUB and SUP are used A LOT on the forums !

Edit :
I tried to write a bold text with small B's (b), and it worked well.

Thanks for pointing that out, because I always bold my signature. It would've been a worry if that didn't work!
<~~ Oh swell! The little me is still here!
