A lot of Proz.com participants choose to be active in the Proz.com forums, for various reasons, as the following quick poll indicates, http://www.proz.com/topic/74188
As a complement to the existing general HTML code guide written by Gianfranco,
( http://www.proz.com/home/12340/HTML_Tips3.htm ),
I thought it could be just as useful to create a "quick reference guide" about how to add certain special text formats or the so-called "emoticons" (such as the popular "smilies") when posting texts in the Proz.com forums, for those interested in adding more "visual feeling" to their written words.
I avoided any "complicated" HTML code explanations, so I just turned the quick reference guide into a simple table. I have only included the very basic ones that may come in handy when posting a message in the forums. For the more sophisticated ones, it's best to check the previously mentioned Gianfranco's tutorial.
Thanks to staff Prozians Enrique, Patrick Dotterer and especially Gastón, for their help when I proposed writing this quick reference guide.
