Formatting, Links and Pictures

Back to Help

If you want to add special formatting, links or pictures, there are two ways to add these:

1. Use the editing toolbar

If you're using a recent web browser, you'll see a word processor-style editing toolbar on your Write a New Entry page.

If you don't see a toolbar, consider updating your web browser. For example, on Windows, you can download the latest version of Internet Explorer for free.

(Which web browsers can I use?)

2. Type some simple "tags"

For example, let's say you want a phrase to appear in bold. Type the beginning tag "<strong>" before the phrase and type the ending tag "</strong>" after the phrase.

For example, say you type: <strong>This is bold</strong>
This is what you will see: This is bold

Tag Examples
What you type What you see
<strong>This is bold</strong>
This is bold
<em>This is italic</em> This is italic
<a href="">This is a link</a> This is a link
<img src="">

These tags are part of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), which is used to write web content. To learn more about HTML and other tags, see a HTML tutorial .
