    If I haven't flag is because I don't know how to insert it. If I knew I'd do it as well as a picture. Anyone have a clue????

    Nkosi Sikele'li Afrika. Maluphakanyisw' uphondo Iwayo,

    Yizwq imithandazo yethu, Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho Iwayo.

    Morena boloka sejhaba sa heso, O fedise dintwa

    Le Matschwenyeho, O se Boloke, O se Boloke, setjhaba sa heso,.

    setjhaba sa South Afrika - South Afrika.

    Uit die blou van onse hemel

    Uit di e diepte van ons see

    Oor ons ewige gebergtes

    Waar die kranse antwoor gee

    Sounds the call to come together

    And united we shall stand

    Let us live and strive for Freedom

    In south Africa Our Land.

    Torre, here's a howto for Internet Explorer: go find a flag online, for example on Wikipedia. Right click the picture, select properties, and copy the Address part (highlight the whole path and Ctrl+C or right-click - Copy). Here's what you'll get: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/9a/Flag_of_Spain.svg/125px-Flag_of_Spain.svg.png

    Now in the forum when replying press the icon saying "Insert/edit image" (it's an icon of a tree). In the Image URL field paste (Ctrl+V or right-click and Paste) the url of the image you copied from Wikipedia.

    This is the procedure for any picture you'd like to post. If you have the picture on your hard drive, you have to find a free picture sharing site, for example www.photobucket.com or www.flickr.com upload your picture there, then do the above.

    Yes, the ability to insert a nationality or postscript under your avatar & name are disabled right now, or I would fix mine. I'm in the USA - Indiana. Go Colts!

    nath: you did everything right, but you provided a link to an svg file which is not displayed by IE. You tried to insert this one: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/37/Location_Sweden_EU_Europe.svg clicking this in IE only gives a Save dialog, it can't be shown. Try this picture instead: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/06/EU-Sweden.svg/713px-EU-Sweden.svg.png or the smaller one at http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/06/EU-Sweden.svg/250px-EU-Sweden.svg.png
