LOL Alex, you noob;)

Yes, your profile name will be in lower case. DEAL WITH IT, please, Skid. It's the way the game enters profile names; all online usernames are lowercase so you will just have to change your nickname to uppercase.

You can only turn on the italics: $i, give it a shadow and/or change the spacing. Different fonts are not available!

btw - here is the documentation (that comes with TMN in "text colours - documentation.txt) again:

User's guide for text formatting
Use the following strings to give a particular style to your nicknames/Game names:
$000 à $fff: color
$i: italic
$s: shadowed
$w: wide spacing
$n: narrow spacing
$m: normal setting
$g: default color
$z: reset all
$$: ta write a "$"

For the color: the 3 caracters after the $ are 16 values going from 0 to f (0123456789abcdef). The first caracter represents the red color, the second green and the third blue.
Here are some color examples:
$000: black
$f00: red
$0f0: green
$00f: blue
$ff0: yellow
$f80: orange
$f0f: pink
$0ff: light blue
$888: grey
$fff: white

For example, to write "The Boss" with "The" in italic and "Boss" in large red, you should type:
$iThe $z$w$f00Boss

I guess, something like this ought to do it:
$000N3$505IL$80F.H

Anyway, why don't you just use "funnynick"?
