Changing font. For Bold , enclose the words between <B> and </B>. Use U for Underline and I for italics.
NOTE: Theoretically, the powers that be would prefer you use Logical styles such as <EM> for EMphasis (usually italics) and <STRONG> which is usually BOLDED.
I have not done that on most of the documents yet but will probably begin doing that style.
Paragraphs and Line Breaks. A Paragraph <P> puts a blank line above the new information. To avoid a blank line, use the line BReak <BR>. Neither the <P> nor the <BR> need a </P> or </BR>. They work as standalone codes.
To get more lines, I use the Preformat codes <PRE> and </PRE>. Whatever is written between will appear exactly as it is written. I also use this for showing report outputs and file structures.
For Indentation, I've only figured out that Lists work. There should probably something better like embedded tabs. There are several types of lists, but I've only used Ordered, Unordered, Directory, and Definition so far. 6/8/95
<UL> list items</UL>.
<DIR> list items</DIR>.
For example, here is an unordered list using LI codes:
Here is an ordered list using LI codes:
and here is a list with P codes instead of LI codes:
<P> Item Two
<P> Item Three
Directory Lists put the items in Big Bold letters with a bullet (like the unordered list).
Here is a directory list using LI codes:
Definition Lists provide a way of listing terms with each definition indented. A definition list begins with <DL> and ends with </DL>. Each Term is prefaced with a <DT> (for Definition Term) and each definition is <DD>. Below is part of a definition list I used in the SQL Tutorial:
To draw a line across the screen, use Horizontal Rule <HR> to get something like this:
