Hello everyone!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Desert-R0se

??? You're confusing me! lol!

There’s more than one way to specify text color, as this comment from 2018-04-23 noted.

A more descriptive name for Dash above would be Strikethrough.

You can also find the answer to your table question in that linked comment.

How about a table? That is the only remaining formatting question I had after my inquiries about color and underline have been answered.
