-----Original Message----- From: framers-bounces+k.zorn=zorntech....@lists.frameusers.com [mailto:framers-bounces+k.zorn=zorntech.com at lists.frameusers.com] On Behalf Of rebecca officer Sent: Monday, January 16, 2006 2:32 PM To: framers at lists.FrameUsers.com; John Wilcox <JWilcox at zetron.com Subject: RE: POLL: Which method do you use to apply bold and italics? Ditto, we use "C". But we've managed to end up with a format named "Bold" too. We use that when we want to make something bold and one of the named formats doesn't apply. ;-( Using character formats isn't necessarily foolproof. Last week, someone accidentally updated one of our formats and made it use a particular font etc, instead of being "as is" for everything but the property it wanted to change. Don't suppose anyone knows of a way to prevent that? Cheers, Rebecca >>> "Joe Malin" <jmalin at tuvox.com> 17/01/06 10:07:42 >>> If the methods are A. Click the B and I buttons, or press Ctrl+B and Ctrl+I. B. Select Bold and Emphasis from the Character Catalog. C: Create special character formats with meta-information (purpose or meaning). then I use C, although it may appear sometimes that I'm using B. While my brain was recovering from a bad sector, I named a character format "Bold" rather than "Strong". I also have some formats that use Italic instead of Emphasis. The horror, the horror! As Andrew noted, this may result in more tags or elements. Perhaps this is a good thing, if it makes us re-examine our typographical conventions.
