Ignorant Computer Question

Markup - the characters in the text to make things happen like b BOLD /b

I've also heard that cookies can be used to access information about you or your computer for people who are interested in data mining. Sheesh, I guess my privacy just went out the window.

Ain't that the truth! I occsionally 'pull up' the cookies folder in WinMe, and get rid of (delete) the ones that look suspect. Be carefull however.
