This was something that hadn't come up to me recently, but I've realized that online chats might play an important role in one of my writing projects (and it sort of makes an appearance as a modified fantasy-ish steampunk variant in another story). However, I've never encountered it in any of the books I've read (though I know it exists) - but how is one supposed to write out an online chat? Like is there a standard format that most authors use, or is online chatting still so new that there isn't really much of a standard yet? I would imagine that you would just indent and bold the usernames of the characters or what not, sort of like a play, but I'm not sure. Thanks in advance.
