Hi PI, thanks for that. But i was testing a chrone plugin recommended by ladygeek somewhere, that takes the url and automatically puts it into various bb or html formats, automatically creating the link text. Apparently it works better in firefox. The "url=" style gets cumbersome at times. I'm always having a hard time clicking just in the right place to insert the url. 😄

I also had some trouble getting the plugin to work in Chrome, but LadyGeek gave me some assistance, and it works for me like a champ now in Chrome. Here's the format code I used in my plugin setup:

2. What are the most appropriate products for our life-status and goals?
