Hi people !
I wanted a bit of help from you guys......
I have developed a chat application and am trying to add some features into it.
Right now I'm trying to format the messages with different fonts and styles, which doesn't seem to work fine.
My idea was to set the font style and size of each individual message according to the user preferences.
Any idea how I could do this.......??
Thanks and regards,
Rasmeet
