Remember, I am demonstrating the coding with spaces. Always remove the spaces between the coding and the words to have the outcome of the code. <p> < b > Bold </ b > = <b>Bold</b> <p> <br> < i > Italics </ i > = <i>Italics</i> <br> &# x2605 = &#x2605 <br> &# 9728 = &#9728 <br> & spades = &spades <br> & clubs = &clubs <br> & hearts = &hearts <br> & diams = &diams <p> These are just basic HTML codings. You can google 'Basic HTML codings and get more, but hopefully these help. Remember, remove all spaces between the codings to get the coded outcome. <br>~ Rose
