Re: Trinket Inscriptions
Color works, too, but only these 16 colors. Color's even a bit quirkier than size, though, so you can't start the inscription with the colored text; the colored text needs to be pushed off the line that 'Note: "' is on because you can't have two colors on the same line.

Eight characters plus the blank space works:
12345678 <font color=purple> texty goodness </font>

And so does using empty bold tags to eat up the space:
<b> </b> <font color=purple> texty goodness </font>

You can do two colors, but not easily, given the weird spacing requirements (you again need to push the new color onto a separate line, hence the extra spaces) and the limit of 100 characters:
<b> </b> <font color=purple> texty </font>   <font color=blue> goodness </font>

You can do size and font together, but you seem to have to use separate tags (losing more characters) and size has to come first to provide the buffer before the color change:
<font size=7> <font color=purple> texty goodness </font> </font>

And of course, the font tag does wacky things to the space between lines. So, probably not worthwhile most of the time. :(

The best I've managed so far is using something fancy for the buffer at the beginning and using it again at the end to make it look not-weird, but there's still some spacing shenanigans:
???????? <font color=purple> <b>Team Purple-Evil</b> <i>Joining forces!</i> </font> ????????????

(This really needs pictures. Maybe later.)

/e did not mean to spend this much time on this. O_o

EDIT: Those question marks were hearts when I pasted them in. :(
