Thanks so much Jason. I have become an insomniac lately and I typed that at 4 am. When I looked at it this am I knew you would have to touch it up. :)

Italics are real easy: highlight the text and click on the "I" icon on the tab above your message box. Or just type [ i ] and [ /i ] around the text you want to italicize.
