I have searched high and low and have found no list of possible codes for text. Does such a list exist at all? What I want specifically is to add a background glow around the letters. It seems like I've seen this done on a signature before, but I can't find any examples of it anymore... ◄► Tephra ◄► 05:01, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Eh, your options are pretty much anything supported by css or anything you can cram into an image of appropriate size. Look up currently supported css options, mebbe. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101025 - 05:34 (UTC)
Well Google searches are not helpful... I can make a pseudo-glow using shadows, but I'd prefer a real glow.

And what would make it real, eh? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101025 - 05:52 (UTC)
If the glow surrounded the whole letter rather than just exist as an offset one pixel to the upper-right. ◄► Tephra ◄►
Eh, be creative. You can probably come up with something. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101025 - 06:05 (UTC)
I did come up with using shadows with a 1 pixel offset. I will use this style for now, but if anyone else out there knows how to make a true glow effect, I'd like to know. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Unununium (talk • contribs)

Well I've now finished nuclear waste, you can see how shadows turned out... they seem to not mesh well with links, but whatever. ◄► Tephra ◄► 15:44, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

That's creepy. You're weird. It's a good thing you found your way here, hmmm? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:34, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
What's creepy, the article or the shadow effect? ◄► Tephra ◄► 08:54, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
The shadow effect. The article could be, too. I don't know. I never learned how to read. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:31, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Oh, that's a sham, or uh... shame. Perhaps you should check out HowTo:Read, I'm sure it would be very helpful. ◄► Tephra ◄► 22:36, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
Ironically, you need to know how to read before you can read that pa...oh. I see what you did there. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:35, October 26, 2010 (UTC)
