My point is you can turn this

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SHOP-...27301487QQrdZ1

into this

eBay Link

Which one is easier to read??
Ahhh...OK... THAT was your point.

True, what you say, though I am usually too lazy to add the extra tags.

And back to the original question of this thread, It was my understanding that large pictures are usually the culprit for making the thread wider than your normal screen. I haven't noticed that just a lot of wordy writing (like this) does anything to widen the thread. Am I wrong on this? Or is it you? j/k

If you are seeing this thread go off your screen, change your resolution.

If normally you can see the whole screen...and then you come across someone that put a huge pic in and the screen is overfilled.. smack them about putting in too large of a pic.

maybe we can get a button above where we type our posts that has all that jazz, so we click it, insert the web address and the "tag" w/o having to type it all.

You can highlight a strip of text, link to an image for example, and hit the correct button and it will put the tags in for you. I use that feature to do bold, italic, or different size/color text.
