Special Effects/FeaturesAlong with the normal text formatting (bold, underline, align left, align right, align center, align justify, lists, tables etc.) numerous other effects can be added to your web-site. The ones shown below are just a small sample of what can be done. If you see an effect/feature here that you want in your web-site just ask. If you can't find what you are looking for ask us anyway we may be able to do what you want.
Drop Capital Letter
If you want some special effects with text the you could always try the "Dropped Capital Letter" effect shown here. The text just flows around the large first letter.
If it is used sparely and in the correct places the effect can can be very good (such as at the start of an article). However, it should not be used in the wrong places or to excess (at the start of every paragraph) as it will destroy the look of the overall effect.
First Letter Big
An Alternative to the Drop Cap effect is the "First Big Letter" effect. Again, it can be very effective if used correctly (such as at the start of an article), but should not be used to excess.
