Usually left-clicking them will make them appear (no copy/paste required) although typing in the right bit of code also works. Here's a list to play with if you cannot get them to work any other way, in the order they normally appear.

Not a new convert, but a new member of the forum.

Or just go to the end of my hall at home and go into the 16 year old's bedroom--- really
have you all ever seen the Tardis? - this kids room is like it- sort of- it is not what it seems from the outside, it a parallel dimension, but to get there you have to burrow through the clothes on the floor.

Sorry being silly

Hey, my mom says the same thing about my room.
My candle burns at both ends
It will not last the night
But ah my foes and oh my friends
It gives a lovely light

I was converted a little over a year ago, but only found the forum last night.

I'm a part- time humanist and I live in Belfast N. Ireland.

I will seek out a smart avatar and go investigating the other threads. :shellfish: :shellfish: :shellfish: :shellfish: :shellfish: :shellfish: :shellfish:

Welcome Polly!

Please be sure to speak up, publicly or privately, if you need help with something, or anything around here just isn't working for you.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill
