XML or HTML is too much a concept for.But how can i set this up via gmail account?Any type of highliting would suffice.

In the body of the text you can you use the <b></b> tags, that's all you need. In the header you're probably best just using CAPITALS as most email readers use bold to indicate unread messages anyway.


e.g.

<b>This text will be in bold in your received gmail body.</b>

Maybe i wasn`t clear enough,sorry.The body of the text is inside the code scritp,which transmits from one gmail account to another.I tried the HTML code within the srcipt,but it probably fly that way.

Sounds like you might need to find the escape mechanism in the script language to stop special characters being processed locally - in Ninja that's the '@' character before a string (e.g. testString = @"<b>my bold text</b>"; )) - but maybe you are using something else - and I'm not sure that's needed in this case anyway (usually more for slash chars). Maybe I'll have a play next week in live market when alerts will get processed again and we can test, unless somebody else submits a good solution first.

So you suggest that i`d need surround the message test with the @ symbol,to get text boldness?

Just to be clear. You can not use bold or custom fonts with standard SMS text messages. You'll only receive HTML code.

And it depends on your [EDIT: cell phone] provider whether they will translate an HTML coded email into a properly formatted MMS text message. Many do not, their email to text message gateway will only send via SMS.

Not on its own, as I suggested the '@' symbol is used to prevent any special processing of characters in any string (e.g. '/'), but I'm not even sure it is needed to stop any processing of the <b>....</b> which is what signifies the bold state in the html text, maybe someone else does.

Just try @"<b>My test string</b>"

As @MrYou says, I assume you are receiving the message in an email reader of some form, and not just SMS?

I do not send or recieve any SMS.I want to sent the text from one ninja code via e-mail alert to anothe different mail box,so the recipient recieves it in bold,different color,different fonts,etc.Hope that`s clear.

Maybe someone more XP would chime in.

Example:

the text in the script message(original):

Trade Alert BUY Signal

i`d like the recipient get the message like this(example):

Trade Alert BUY Signal
