hawgwash, are you changing your font color ? It doesn`t even show up using the black forum skin. All I see is an empty reply box.

Now you really got me scratching my head.
I've changed nothing, I see it and obviously gregrocker read me two posts ago.
Does anyone see this?

Brian is a the dark Forums skin (from menu at bottom of each page) which has some problems reading some fonts.

Phew!
After thoroughly confusing everyone yesterday, I thought maybe I was confusing myself AND my keyboard.
Some of my posts have been done on word doc with my default Arial font. Maybe that's the problem.
I notice when I do that, some words jam together likethis.

Maybe I should just go back to knitting...

Bingo!

When I composed a tutorial on Word and pasted it in, I soon got complaints that it wasn't readable in dark skins.

Interesting.
So how would you now do a tutorial?

Aother thing;
Your post # 13 shows (to me):
"Brian is a the dark Forums skin (from menu at bottom of each page) which has some problems reading some fonts."
But in the email notification it reads:
"Brian is using the dark forum skin (from menu at bottom of each page) which has some problems reading some fonts.

Posts can be written in the reply box. This is what it's for.

Now I can see it no problem.

Uhhhhhhhh.... Why would you use word document to reply in a forum

Greg, I`ve never had a problem reading posts with this skin, only when people do it incorrectly, as in this case

That`s why I said ignatz must be psychic

Yeah, well, I know that much
I just thought, a tutorial takes a lot of work and I don't know if I would like to do one solely in the reply box.

And it sure doesn't help my feeble old brain when what I mean and say doesn't show up coherently; either via formatting or my own communication.

The dark side, yeah, that's it.

If you knew how long it takes me to peck out a few words, with fingers like hooves and how many corrections I have to make, you might understand.

Also, I have found not all forums are created equal.
Perhaps you are right and I am doing it incorrectly but this is the first time (forum) the issue has arisen, at least for me.
See? I just learned another thing here.

Lucky Number Seven? What is it with this number seven? When Bill Shakespeare famously wrote the "All the world's a stage..." speech in As You Like It he described, with fearsome accuracy, the seven ages of man. You'll recall it concludes that the seventh age: "...that ends this strange...
