Like * does for bold, _ does for italic, etc.

If not, that would REALLY be handy, especially for those of us who post a lot by way of small mobile devices.

Thanks, in advance.

    Alas, no. You can use the buttons, and then type inside, so you don't have to type it all out.

    Wow. Now THAT'S customer service. ;-P

    Thanks for the quick reply, elfling.

    I acknowledge the ability to use the button, and I do. I guess it's more my dissatisfaction with the limitations of my primary device.

    The full site doesn't play overly well with my Android-based phone, in which I believe most, if not all, browsers are of the "webkit" variety.

    The text boxes utilized for entering Comments/diaries start doing goofy things, as well as become slow to respond when focus is alternated to-from them. This becomes more pronounced as the number of comments in a diary increases.

    Anyhow, thanks again for your reply.

    (And I will say this help desk is pretty impressive, I didn't pay much attention to it when it was first announced, but I'm sold on it now.)

    A true mobile site is in the works. We know there are some problems with the Android platform, and will address them when we can. Thanks for detailing your experience; that will be helpful.

    You guys rock. Plain and simple.

    Though a subscription was always in my plans, you just solidified that commitment.

    Money is tight atm, by the end of the year, count on it. Cross my heart. :-)

    Last question for now....

    What is the best way to document my Android Daily Kos experience going forward, so that you'll be able to see it?

    Through helpdesk somehow? Diary with specific tags?
