Beautiful, bountiful, beleaguered princesses,

Patiently, presenting amazing fortitude.                           
Constantly forgiving horrible attitudes.

Been trying, but not having much success. I manage to embolden the stressed words, using control B, but when I try to save it goes badly out of line. I suspect I'm doing something wrong. All part of the learning process I guess. It's o.k I managed it!

the advanced formating sometimes goes mad and refuse to remove the format. I used to CAPITAL for the accented and the small for non-accented.
