Disappearing comments. Also, html tags and registered bloggers
UPDATE: The problem of disappearing comments appears to have cleared up -- apparently it was caused by a very long delay in posting comments. Another blogger reported also experiencing problems at the same time. Still, though, there appears to be some delay in posting comments on the normal viewing screens, so the best chance of seeing the latest comments is by viewing the comment-submission screens. Anyway, I just love this blog! No longer do I have to bang my head against the wall trying to get my ideas posted on Panda's Thumb and other Internet forums.
Also, a short note was added to the discussion of html tags.
Also, the instructions for this blog say that there are very limited choices for html tags for comments. The only ones that work or are supposed to work are bold, italics, and a, but I find that a alone does not work but that the a href=" option does work. The a option is equivalent to the url option. On the a href=" option, spaces between the quote marks and the URL link are not allowed. The "strong" tag is the same as the "b" tag and the "em" tag is the same as the "i" tag.
Also , the names of some of the commenters are underlined in the comment headings -- this indicates that the commenter is registered on this blog service, www.blogger.com . Clicking on the name will bring up the commenter's profile and links to the commenter's blogs and other websites.
