How do I format text using HTML tags?
HTML is a way of marking up text using tags, to make text look a certain way on the Web. Tags are always used in pairs, which deciphers when to start a certain look and when to stop. The "start" tag is written in angle brackets, and the "end" tag has a slash in it which means "stop doing this".
If you would like to format text in a text box that does NOT include an HTML editor, you can insert the following HTML tags to format your text:
Adding a single line break:
Type: I wish to type my text <br>
Adding a blank line in between two sentences:
Type: I want to <b>emphasize a point</b> by making text bolder than the rest.
Type: I want to <u>emphasize a point</u> by underlining specific text.
Type: I want to <i>emphasize a point</i> by italicizing specific text.
