Can I make some text larger or smaller?

btw I noticed an answer here (by Oli), there's a line where the text seems smaller.

If you're talking about per-text size changes, there's some basic things you can do.

For large text, you can use a # before the text.

#Hello_World goes to

Hello_World

It needs to be on its own line.

The small text you see in Oli's answer was produced by putting <sup></sup> or <sub></sub> around the text.

I don't know if there are other text size options, but according to this Meta SE Q&A, there don't seem to be any more options.

Edit:

Thanks to Videonauth, I can now say that using some basic HTML tags will work, such as <h1></h1>, h2, etc. I think these will display differently on different browsers, depending on whether or not AU/SE has them customized in the CSS.

  • There is *word* for italics and **word** for bold – Videonauth May 26 '16 at 23:08
  • @Videonauth that's not really font size – TheWanderer May 26 '16 at 23:10
  • Well the most common html works too i think so <h1></h1> till <h6></h6> but don't nail me down on that I'm mostly fine with the given board options. – Videonauth May 26 '16 at 23:13
  • @Videonauth they do! – TheWanderer May 26 '16 at 23:17
  • Using more "#"'s will change the size of text (downward only though). – RolandiXor May 27 '16 at 2:51
