    There are nine forward slashes in your example.


    Do you only need backslashes before these two?

    Check out my progressive tshirts & gear: or my hand-drawn reproduction of Rachel's Excelsior Poster from Friends available on cards, stickers, curtains etc.

      Daily Kos
      Text and HTML:
      <a href="">Daily Kos</a>
      To display text and code:
      To make the commands visible, add four backslashes:

           One \ before <a href
           One \ before the first doubled forward slash //
           One \ before the second doubled forward slash //
           One \ before </a

      (No extra spaces, only insert the backslash.)

      With a backslash in front of each of the doubled forward slashes, the four characters look like a large, sprawled-out W or like \ / \ / but without the spaces.

      Thank you for your questions, Eileen B. You are helping many Kossacks who may be feeling too timid to ask or too busy or who are too late to ask questions.
