    [HI]Put your cursor just where you want it in the Reply boc, then click on the little yellow "hl' box and then type in between the brackets[/HI]

    Or do the typing. then highlight whatever test you want to highlight with your left mouse button held down you know, as if you were going to [HI]cut and paste[/HI] or change it to italics or whatever, same as in Word etc - it will go blue, then click on the "hl" box.

    Two thumbs on the screen, pull apart to enlarge text, tap in front of where you want highlight to start, [HI]select, select all or paste box [/HI]will show, touch select, drag blue bar to end of text you require to highlight then tap on the [hl] symbol on the top bar, jobs a good un. The answer is enlarging the text screen before you start.:thumb:
