Thanks to some helpful suggestions by readers, I’ve changed the form you use to comment on posts. You’ll now see a small button bar above the text entry field that will let you make modest formatting choices. As well, you can now “embed” a hyperlink in link text and no longer must use the actual link URL (although that is still possible, if you prefer it).
Please let me know whether the brief instructions above the comment entry form are in any way unclear.
You may also notice that I’ve increased the text size used within the comment entry form.
