|PFA Code is a variation on the HTML tags you may already be familiar with. Basically, it allows you to add style to your text that would normally require HTML.|
|Bold and Italics||
You can make italicized text or make text bold by encasing the applicable
sections of your text with either the [b] [/b] or [i] [/i] tags.
To color text, encase the applicable sections of your text with the [color=]
I'd like this text to be in [color=blue]blue[/color].
I'd like this text to be in blue.
The color values can be any hexadecimal number, specified according to the sRGB color space, or one of sixteen color names.
To emphasize text by using underlining, encase the applicable sections of your text
with the [u] [/u] tags.
|Superscript and Subscript||
To raise or lower text, you can encase the text with the [sup] [/sup] or [sub] [/sub] tags.
The equation would be: t[sub]d[/sub]= v[sup]2[/sup].R[sub]t[/sub]
The equation would be: td=v2.Rt
|Small and large print||
To change the size of a specific word or sentence, encase the applicable sections of your text
with the [size=] [/size] tags.
Didn't you read the [size=1]small print[/size]?
Didn't you read the small print?
You have three sizes to choose from: [size=1] produces small text, [size=2] produces normal sized text, and [size=3] produces large text. Any other size will be ignored.
To create hyperlinked text, just use the following format:
In the example above, the PFA Code automatically generates a link to the URL in the [url=] tag. It will also ensure that the link is opened in a new window when the user clicks on it. Note that the "http://" part of the URL is REQUIRED. Also note that you should NOT use quotation marks inside the URL tag.
To create a link to an email address, just use the following format:
In the example above, the PFA Code automatically generates a link to the email address in the [email=] tag. Clicking this link will open the user's email program with the mail address pre-filled.
You can make bulleted lists or ordered lists (by number or letter).
Unordered, bulleted list:
Making ordered lists is just as easy. Just add either [LIST=A] or [LIST=1]. Typing [List=A] will produce a list from A to Z. Using [List=1] will produce numbered lists.
Here's an example:
To center complete blocks of text and images in your auction description,
encase the applicable section with the [center] [/center] tags.
To add an image within your auction description, just encase the URL of the
image as shown in the following example (PFA Code is in
In the example above, the PFA Code automatically makes the image visible in your auction description. Note: the "http://" part of the URL is REQUIRED for the [img] code.

sections of your text with the [bg=] [/bg] tags.
