I do not understand your instructions to make italic text italic and bold text bold.

I attempted to follow the instructions like this:

(i) the text I want italic; i.e., the book title (/i) AND

(b) the text I want bold; i.e. 4 out of 4 stars. (/b)

However, in your instructions, you show "CODE: Select All" - where do I find that or how do I make it appear? and once I find it or make it appear, do I click on "Select All"? If so, when? At what point in the process?

That's because you used (/i) and(/b) instead of

Code: Select all

[i], [/b]

Regular text Who told you that you were naked? A Refreshing Reexamination of the Garden of Eden [i/]
I cannot get the title to remain highlighted so as to effect italics

Hello, I am trying to write my first review but am confused as to how to utilize bold or italic options. Please help.
Regular text. Text you want bold. Regular text.

Thank you for your help, Tammy (Olivia810)

Did I do this correctly? When I submitted my book review, to put the title in italics, I typed as follows:

(i) The 11:05 Murders (/i)

To put my rating in bold, I typed as follows:

(b) 4 out of 4 stars(/b)

What confuses me is that in your instructions, you show “CODE: Select All”
but I don’t see that Code or option anywhere....please advise.
Thank you.

No. You should put

Code: Select all

[b] 
and NOT (/b). The first post explains that.
