"Blizzard Markup Language" (BML)
BML allows you to use some HTML codes to format on your posts like you would a web page. Most tags require both an opening and closing tag. If you do not correctly enclose your text with the correct command the BML will not work. These commands are not case sensitive so you can use either uppercase or lower case in the commands such as [b] or [B]. You can use the Preview Post option to test out formatting, or fix your post afterwards using the edit feature.

BML commands
"Text" in these examples can be replaced with whatever text you wish to format.
