Tutorial: How to highlight text in a post.

If you know html, you don't have to worry about this. But for the rest of us poor bloggers, here's something that might help.

The bottom line is that if you have chosen Blogger in Draft from your Dashboard, if you click "New Post" from that Dashboard you will have the option to highlight text.  Here's further explanation...

OK, so first you make sure that you have Blogger in Draft checked when you are on your Dashboard:

Then, as shown above, click on "New Post". Here is the screen/posting template that will come up:

You'll notice it's different than the posting screen/template you get when you click "new post" at the top of your screen in the navigation bar. I've included that posting template here:

OK, so we're back on the post screen that you get to when you click "New Post" from the Blogger in Draft Dashboard. In the screen below, I have clicked on the highlighting tool to show all of the colors:

You get the same set of colors when you click on the text color tool in the above post template (in other words, the text & highlighting tools have the same set of colors from which to choose in the "draft" post template). Notice that the set of colors you get is also different from the post template you get when you press "New Post" at the top of your screen (in the navigation bar), as opposed to "New Post" from the (draft) dashboard. Here is what the original (non-draft) screen's text color look like:

Really it's just "FYI"...not necessarily crucial to blogging. But Blogger does quite a bit in "draft" before they convert the new feature to regular, permanent Blogger.
