dA Guide: Text Formatting
This is just a quick text formatting guide for dA. My goal was to make a simple html guide for easy reference. Please PAY ATTENTION to where the codes WILL and WILL NOT work! (Certain codes won't work in comments and deviation descriptions, no matter how hard you try.) :'D

This will make italicized text.
