Fantastic, thank you!

I never knew it before, and learned HTML when I began acessing

My Favorite Web Site

Hmmm...that's interesting...

I had a question, so I 'copied' the format above for creating a hyperlink from the article, but it Didn't copy correctly, and won't show up in in HTML format, only regular!

What's up with that, anyway? <-----(what's up with that??)

An example, do not click

Anyway, here's my question...Does using upper case vs. lower case letters makes a difference in how everything looks in the end?

OH--

I made green chili chicken enchaladas tonight...despite the headache from staring at this HTML......but it's such fun, isn't it??

Thank you so much JL! I've been trying to figure out how to get an image to post on the right side of the page and now I know.

You just made my whole week! :-) Now I need to figure out why the first paragraph is up between the bats when I put a < p> after the first and second bat. Any suggestions?

Happy Halloween!
