Italic, Boldface and Links

How can I write in italics and boldface on this forum?

And how can I make links to other websites that don’t make the full adress visible?
For example, let the link to appear as “see here”.

I think it’s regular html code. < i >Italics< /i > (minus spaces) and such. I’m not if links work the same, though.

Italics is < i >text</ i > minus spaces

Bold is < b >text</ b > minus spaces

For links, it’s HTML code, for example

<-a href=“url”>Link text</-a->

Minus the dashes -


Yes, it works!
