Why are you underlining certain words in postings to provide a link? Just curious.

PC Advisor now highlights keywords selected by our advertisers, typically a vendor name, product or service. Keywords are underlined in green and are hyper-linked to the advertiser's site.

They are links to web pages. For example: if somebody writes the word " Microsoft " somewhere in their thread PCA puts in a link to MS's web page for you.

Hmmmm, didn't seem to work with microsoft. Ah well.........

Has on my page. :-)

Doesn't always work as planned though. If somebody starts a new thread on a Sunday the 'Sun' turns into a link :O)

What green underlinings?

Same as Andsome here - what green lines? Read a lot about them in the Forum but never seen any.

It's a plan by the Martians to communicate secretly with the super boffins who use this site, a full invasion is nigh, back up your data.

The trouble we had getting 'Martians' not to underline... Doh!
