Firefox makes HTML easy with these addons:
BBCodeXtra is an extension, compatible with Mozilla FireFox and Mozilla Suite, which adds to the context menu new commands to insert BBCode/Html/XHtml codes in an easy and fast way.
BBCode - Adds BBCode, HTML, XHTML & Symbols formatting to the context menu for Blogs and forums (PHPBB and others).
These are essentially the same but each has a couple of extra features not found in the other.
Word Count Plus — Counts the number of words in selected text - great to avoid cutting and pasting and then finding out you exceeded the number of words (usually 300) allowed for excerpts from copyrighted material.
Thanks! Haven't explored useful addons for awhile.
my two cents.... It is helpful to add a quote in italics when your replying to someone up thread. Without the quote others will often have no idea what you are commenting on.
