Since this is getting too technical for me, I thought I'd pose the question in the tech talk. How do you color and change size of fonts when submitting a new cache? Do you do it on another program, then cut and paste, or is there some way on the submission sheet to do it?

My method is this:

Type up the cache page the way you want it to appear in an email editor. I use Outlook, but it shouldn't matter.

Right-click on the body of the message, select 'view source", select all of the text, copy, and paste it to the blank cache page's long description area. Make sure the HTML box is checked on GC.com.

The link above has some other good information of adding graphics that you can add to this.

I find this a quick and simple method if you are not accustomed to typing in HTML.

I'm short-handed at work and my employees have been sick, so too much OT to get out...hopefully, pretty soon...I'll see if I can get the cache out of my van this morning and set up Smile

Maybe you should just email them the coordinates and provide a detailed map to get there and a photograph of the hide too..... Wink

I re-wrote the cache listing since it was considered commercial...so it is no longer a mystery cache, but a standard, quick grab (even for a "cities" cacher)...once it is published, we'll see who gets FTF...sorry to keep you waiting Smile
