Thanks for the info on changing the font Jason. Actually, it appears to change the whole screen size, and it does it very dramatically--I scrolled the wrong way the first time, and got the whole screen down to postcard size on the left side of the page. Interesting question, I assume this will carry over into the actual post.
And as far as I could tell, clicking on View more Emoticons gets you the same ones in a box, and without the odd shapes that I have now. And it doesn't really change it--it just makes it wierd--as to previews.
Well, let's see how my first post comes up. Tony, bless his heart, signed me up and then told me. Also, on the preview, although the smiley is safely between two sentences in the post, on the preview it's over part of a word.
And then I got the Error551 message, tried again, and it said no, but when I went back it double posted and when I clicked on the box to delete the second post (the only one that had a box) it deleted both. Well I'll try again.
