A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

The first post explains it in detail, with examples of what it should look like before posting, and this thread is specifically for practicing it. :tiphat:
Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade.

If the regular text is not needed then you just start whatever you want to be in bold or italics with either b with brackets or i with brackets then end it appropriately. From what you wrote above, your regular text is every other word in you statement except the "bolded regular text". For instance: Wole Soyinka is an African author. " Wole Soyinka" is the bolded text while "is an African author" is the regular text.
I hope this was helpful :)

I am trying to do my review and I don't have the taskbar above the text box that is will allow me to make text bold or itialized. What do I need to do to fix?
