Note about formatting. You can copy and paste this information from your word processor, but this will strip out most formatting. You should keep the formatting minimal. You can use the html button bar to add bold, italics, or indented blocks. To use these, highlight the text you want the formatting applied to, then click the appropriate button. This will insert html tags before and after the text, but you will not see the changes until you preview your post.
