In the reply window, look at the top and there is a row of icons. It is the third one in from the right, it looks like a page within a rectangular speech bubble. It is in the second row down.

And so am I


Well we didn't get hit by that Cyclone as bad as some I am extremely thankful to say. It is still raining and the wind
is still blowing but neither as strong as before.

Notice that here in the posh Hemisphere we call strong winds and heavy rain a Cyclone not like the common or garden
Hemisphere which calls that same weather a Hurricane.

Finally I apologise for not posting Happy Birthday to those who have had same or are due one in the next 365 days.

Absolutely, I read recently that Harold was descended from the Vikings, as, er, was William!!

Close, get rid of the 'forward slash' next to the first [QUOTE} and you should be there.

[What does "the little icon" in the reply window look like? Where does it appear. Keep in mind that I associate "icons" with "clasting", so I am in new territory.
They tell me this is too short, must be at least 10 characters. Come On! This is much longer than 10.
