Clicking on this icon will embolden your text. The next icon is the Italics (I) and clicking on this icon will Italize your text. The third icon is the strike through icon (-) which is typically used to strike through a word or paragraph to show some kind of error or changed made to the post. The 4th icon creates an unordered bulleted list and the one after that creates an ordered and numbered list of items inside the post. These are usually done to highlight important points in the post.

Next is the quote icon (“). This is used to block quote inside the test. Type something and put it inside the quotes. This is normally done to highlight or to incorporate words spoken by someone. The following 3 icons are used for text alignment in you web design. Starting with the left alignment followed by center and finally right alignment.
