Or to add formatting in a comment? The blog I need help with is queermeter.wordpress.com.

If you copy and paste directly from Word, some the formatting may be stripped. You can manually wrap text in tags like this to format them: <`strong> This text will be bold </strong> <em> This text will be in italics </em> <blockquote> This will appear as a blockquote </blockquote>` Markup for lists and hyperlinks are also allowed.
