ETML Formatting

Engrade allows you to add rich formatting to your assignment descriptions and messages with a few simple commands. Our formatting code called ETML (Engrade Text Markup Language) is similar to HTML, but we do not allow HTML for security reasons. To use the codes described below, simply integrate them with the text that you enter when you want to create an assignment description.

[b] this text will be bold [/b]
[i] this text will be italic [/i]
[u] this text will be underlined [/u]
[sup]superscript[/sup] will appear as superscript
