So you want to post the setting description, but you want to break it into multiple pages? I really hate it when people do that, but I'm willing to be convinced.

Gemm, when you posted that, yes it was close.

Fell, i'm looking to make it easy to read and refer to. Is that a convincing argument?

For me, nothing is easier to read than a single document with a scroll bar. I hate having to jump back and forth between pages, even if it doesn't take long for them to load, and I especially hate trying to remember which page something is on. If we put it in a handy, visible format with some anchors for section headings, what's wrong with that?

Yeah, that anchors for section headings with it all on one page sounds good.

fine, fine, it's not like I've done it yet. The power has been out for 5 of the last 12 hours at various times, slowing me down.

Is this something that's going to be up on the main site, or are will it be posted somewhere else until it's all finished.  (in other words, where do I look for it?)

Well, I posted it, as an RPG article so I could continue to edit it, though it should probably be "other." that can be done before it is approved. For some reason the system removes all my + from my <font size=+1> tags. It's annoying me. I'm going to try two more things before I make you just learn to deal with two different types of headings that look the same.

ah, yes, but it erases the + when I submit.
THe formatting woudl work perfect (at least in IE6) except that the + is removed.
I"m just going back through and isntead of doing my small caps just using <H> tags.

why not just change it to font size="x", that will set it to the exact TTF size that wordpro's use.  Just don't forget the quotes.

Ok, that's annoying me
I think my browser is ignoring the size commands
Can one of you admin types take a look at that and tell me if you see different size caps n' such with the headings?
