From Vietnam Veterans for Factual History
Jump to: navigation, search

To highlight text on the Vietnam Veterans for Factual History wiki, do the following:

  • Mouse over the text you want to highlight while holding down the Shift key
  • Click on the yellow marker icon in the toolbar above (if you mouse over it, you'll see it says "Highlight")
  • This will insert the following code around the text you highlighted with your mouse

<span style="background-color: yellow">The text you highlighted is here</span> If you want to use a different color than The text you highlighted, replace yellow with the color you want; The text you highlighted is here, The text you highlighted is here, The text you highlighted is here, The text you highlighted is here, The text you highlighted is here, The text you highlighted is here, etc.

As you can see, some colors make the text very hard to see. So choose wisely.
