Dog, at this point in time we do not have the ability to control that. However, it is possible to input this yourself through HTML.

To change font size, you can write <font size=+NUMBER> to make it larger or <font size=-NUMBER> to make it smaller. You will always want to close it with an </font> tag.

Here are a couple of examples:

<font size=+2>Example of Font Size +2</font>
<font size=-2>Example of Font Size -2</font>


If you know the name of the text style you'd like to use, you can change the font by using the <font face="FONT_NAME"> tag. It works exactly the same as the examples above.

Here's an example:

<font face="times new roman">Example of Times New Roman</font>

If you would like to combine the two, it would look like this:

<font size=+2 face="times new roman">Example of Font Size +2 and Face Times New Roman</font>


To add an image, you can use the <img src="URL"> tag.

Here's an example:

<img src="http://www.myfico.com/Images/BillMeLater/accept_cc_bml.png">
- I borrowed this image from MyFICO.


It's also possible to add a link.

<a href="http://www.myfico.com">Here is a link</a>

looks like:

Here's a link


It is of course possible to put the link on either sides of the image tag to link to a website with the image. For that, you would put the tag for the image in the space where "Here's a link" is currently.


I hope that lays out a little more information about the macros and how you can get around us not having a graphical editor for the macros!
