7[8] 7 Format Menu 02-10-2006

This menu is one that allows you to change the Text in an active chat - as it is sent, on an individual post, line, word or letter basis by pulling up the Font and Colour pallets. Some versions of iChat have an Underline option here. iChat 3 where this picture comes from, does not and requires you use the options at the top of the Font pallet when it is open.

Created With JAlbum 4.0.6

Confirmed to work with Win/IE 5.5 and later (should work in 5.0, but not confirmed), Firefox 2, Safari 3, Opera 9, iCab 3.02 and later, Mac/IE 5, Netscape 6 and later

Old browsers (IE version 4 or earlier, Netscape 4 or earlier) should only see a text-based page which, while not the prettiest option, is still entirely usable.
