Rocket Science

August 17/11

This is for people like me who stumble
and swear when introduced to new computer
programs, as in setting up this blog.

ROCKET SCIENCE                                                                ?????????????????????
or THE SHIFT-KEY STUDENT

when editing a window
use keyboard trickery
create a line-break
by hitting, not Return
but Shift + Return
then double up with HTML
click back to visual view
and click on the image

don’t forget ‘Advanced Settings’
before putting in
the preformatted style-selector
or get into the plain-text realm
not good for angled brackets
or computer immigrants
so watch out for slashes before tags
and avoid all blockquotes
in order to customize your appearance
with a style attribute
and Bob should be your uncle
or not
