NEW SPARKLE TEXT CODE FOR COMMENTING

Know how lj took away our sparkle text except in entries? Well, I have discovered a sneaky way to post sparkle text with a new kind of code. Yes, I am ~magical~.

I made a mirrored version of blindingsparkle called elkrapsgnidnilb (as you can see, it is the same name backwards.) If you're asking why I chose a mirrorverse theme, well, I'm currently high as a kite off cold & flu medicine, so that's what my fevered mind creates. This also explains why only the first entry is done, the glitter and sparkle portion. I'll try and have more up later tonight or tomorrow morning, but no promises as I'm about to go nap and who knows what I'll feel like upon waking. But I promise I'll have them up at some point.

The first thing you may notice is that not every sparkle text could be fixed. You see, what lj did was disable style html in comments, so to circumvent that there is table html, which is pretty much using an image in a borderless table. One of the drawbacks is that there are only a few font sizes to work with, so most of the larger sparkle texts are unusable. Another drawback is that blocks of text look like a table, i.e. the tiling goes on to the end of the line after your text. But considering that up until now we had NO sparkle text, I think these are surmountable issues.


So for now, enjoy sparkling in the comments again!
