Hidden spoilers, how to make them and how to see them
 
Hello Everybody.

Thank's for all your positive remarks on the possibility of hiding 'spoilers' in future postings. I've started a new topic heading before it gets buried within the Poirot pages!

1. HIDDEN SPOILERS, HOW TO MAKE THEM As you enter your posting decide where the actual spoiler begins and mark it with a few characters e.g asterisks ***

now enter the following sequence: a less than bracket < then the words FONT COLOR="white" followed immediately by the greater than bracket >

enter your spoiler (don't worry you'll still see what your typing!) When you have finished your spoiler enter the following: a less than bracket < then the words /FONT followed by the greater than bracket.

Now type a few more characters e.g *** and finish your message. Don't forget to mention that the spoiler is hidden or new viewers will get very confused!

2. HIDDEN SPOILERS, HOW TO SEE THEM If you use Internet Explorer there are two ways, either: click and hold the left mouse button at the start of the invisible text then drag your mouse over the hidden area to reveal the text. OR choose Edit. select all from the menu bar.

If you use Netscape Navigator left click and drag your mouse over the hidden area.

3. Why not try out the technique here, If you get it wrong you can edit your message or even delete it.

GOOD LUCK!

Mike

Lets try this *********SPOILER*******SPOILER*****SPOILER******(to reveal my message (hopfully!) scroll the mouse over the blank space!) The best murderer in the Christie novels was in Roger Ackroyd!
