But, what do I modify to get the image to show up in the reply, rather than the link itself?

1. Note the URL of the web page in which you see the picture you like. Copy it down.

2. Right-click on the picture you see on that web page--the picture that you want to link to. Get "properties" on that picture. Copy that URL for that particular picture.

3. In your reply, format it as you can see, I can't show you, because if I show you...I'd have to ki--, no, seriously, I'm very new at this, and I have the HTML code to give you the answer, but the problem is that FR's web page is trying to display it to you, which doesn't help. How did the earlier poster disable his HTML so he could show me?!?!

What a quandary! To show someone is impossible, because they'll only see the RESULT, not the coding itself.


Cf. post #55 by facedown. He gave the example I followed.

here's your help, again, from the HTML Bootcamp:

Folks, if you want to do what Michigander has done - making an HTML command *appear* instead of being acted upon by the browser, here's the trick:
Instead of typing < type the ampersand(&) pound(#) and 60.

To make > appear, type ampersand pound 62 (no spaces anywhere). In between, you put the HTML tag you want to appear on the screen.

There may be another way to do the same thing, but this is the one I use.

I use < for < and > for > because it's easy to remember "less than" and "greater than".

( And to get those to view on screen, I had to use &lt; and &gt; -- don't forget the semicolons!)
