AWWWwwwright!... Dammit! Something needs to be done! Certain things just don't convey well in the written from when in mixed and sometimes hostile environments.... Sarcasm is at the top of the list, imho. I've heard people express a desire for an emoticon... and got me thinking... what about just a different font color...

What color would sarcasm be?

Sarcastic replies only please....

Maybe just change the color of the first letter or word?

They do have macros that will do that. But I don't know a whole lot about them. My step son has some on this computer set up like that. Which he has it where it goes to a break like a comma, period or question mark.

Yeah, that's what we need - another way to express the obvious to the oblivious.

because without a visual clue, you wouldn't know how I really feel about your suggestion
