Also a tip just in case all you other members aren't programmers :) Any time you click on a button, link, save, etc... there is two actions potentiating.

1. Down_Click selects. This means until you let go nothing is saved/closed, updated, moved (at least not saved in a new location i.e. moving a module around) or any other action (normally, and this is in windows all useful versions).

2. The up_click is where the party happens. The evokation, the actual event your going for...

So if you click save then your brain instantly remembers clicking this button means yes I'm sure (i.e. you want to delete a capsule, in the pop up box it says are you sure... and you click yes, but don't let go and realize oh crap I didn't back it up or this was the WRONG capsule to delete!) your fine so long as you don't let the button go or go up to the unclicked position-

You can "escape" by simply moving the mouse OFF the land mine button "yes" or whatever button your about to click, and let go only after you've cleared the active land mine (button,link, etc...). Unlike a real land-mine, it's not "rooted" into the ground/page- in other words with the mouse clicked down firmly, if you move your mouse off the button (still clicked down), and you see that "shadow" of the button go with you, no worries, that is not active when you unclick (when your unclicking AWAY from the actual/original button).

That ghostly button that sticks to your pointer on the screen is the result of how they create that "impression" "depression" effect- it's two pictures, a down click action changes the picture to the second one that looks pushed down, when you move the mouse (click/drag?) THAT second image (or maybe the first) is what the computer thinks your "dragging" the unclick cancels it and if your not directly over the button your safe (the real button).

Yes, they work like those mines in movies where you can step down but if you let go or move (let go of the button in the pages case) the button goes up and it pulls the pin- "KABOOM". This has saved me countless times (knowing this).

Thought I'd share...

There is no underline button within the editor. However, you can enter the HTML tag <u> for underline, if you click the "Disable editor" link first:

<u>underlined word</u>

I would not recommend this practice if the underlined text is not a hyperlink. Readers have come to expect this. If you want to stress the importance of a word it might be better to bold or italicize instead.
