What I wish everyone knew about formatting text

  • The underline is so 1980s.
  • As in, there's no place for it.
  • Seriously, don't underline text.
  • If you need to emphasize something, use bold or italics.
  • Never use both, like this.
  • All-caps are okay, but only in very small doses.
  • If you do this, you'll just look excessively ridiculous. 
  • And then people will mock you on their blogs.
The author realizes it's a bit of a stretch to include a post on formatting in a series dedicated to boldness. But it's Friday. You understand.
