Big problems with the appearance of the poems. When I was typing them, the line spacing was too great if I hit "Enter" at the end of a line; so I (thought) I'd get around that by just spacing over far enough for the text to wrap to the next line. It looked great on the screen, but in the journal it's another story entirely. If you're trying to read the poems, you just have to know that the text at the right-hand side of the screen is supposed to start the next line.

Sorry about that. And, Rebecca, how did you get your your poems to come out right???

Do you have your lj set on auto-format? That's the only thing I can think of, that you didn't choose that setting and so the poems came out like that.

I just found the poems I wanted online, and copied-and-pasted them into my journal.

I thought it wsa on auto-format, but maybe not. I'm a complete novice where it comes to this open source software, so everything for me is being done by trial and error. I know when I did that post I chose rich text, and that didn't let me preview the post, but since I don't know the coding language to do things manually (text color, font size, italics, etc.) that seemed my only option. Maybe I should just forget the bells and whistles until I get more adept at this.

When I get a chance, I'm going to try to find an icon (what I'd really like is to create/find one that illustrates my username), but whether or not I can actually load anything is open to question. We're running Windows XP here at work, and that's given our IS department the ability to lock us out of a lot of things (changing the screensaver, downloading executable files, etc.) I may just have to remain iconless until I get around to getting a computer at home.
