An excellent how to...

I wanted to thank you for the pointers here. After reading your article I have been able to get my stuff to look basically how I wanted. The formating is especially handy for poetry. Thanks.

Printing HTML Commands in an HTML environment

I bet you had fun getting the 's and 's to print in HTML. Thanks for the info. Now I can fix what I want fixed without feeling like I'm imposing on Laurel.

Thanks, Alex

I know HTML, but it never occurred to me to submit in this way. If it'll help Laurel AND get my work published faster, I'm happy to do it!

Nice one Alex

Bold and italic tags are good - for the 99% of readers who use a graphic browser. However, that odd 1% have problems with eyesight or technology (actually I've no idea what the real figure is, it may be very different from 1%). They use 'text-only' browsers, (plus text-to-speech software). The thing is that a number of such browsers just can't handle bold and italic as such. Accordingly, it is better to use the and tags. gets rendered as bold by graphic browsers and ('emphasis') gets rendered as italic, but the text-only ones WILL give some sort of mod (maybe with colour) to make the relevant bit of text stand out.

"Walk the extra mile" to cater for the minority; the majority won't suffer!

A Timely How To:

Thank you Alex for taking the time to explain HTML. Sometime back you walked me through the process and it has made such a difference in the way I submit stories. Now, thanks to your article, it's available to everyone. Top Notch!

Thank You

For the past few months I have been an avid reader of Lit. As of late, I've been trying to build the courage to submit my work. However it can be a daunting task trying to decipher all the jargon and red tape that is thrown your way. Thank you for clearing up several questions that I felt literally too scared to ask.

wow!

I never knew that it was acceptable to submit stories as text blocks, with the <B> and <I> tags already included! This is gonna make future submissions so much simpler! Thank you!

Well, I Don't Write Stories, But I Do ....

read them, and anything to make the stories available faster and in the format the author prefers, gets my vote. I also think it is a really good person, thinking about others, that offers suggestions for his competition to aid their submittals. That easily rates a "5" and my thanks!

One question: Will that procedure work for me offering comments? Any suggestions on how to insert a bold or italic?

Thanks Alex

I finally got around to searching for help on html tags and found your advice. I have just used them tio edit a recent story and they all worked (at least on preview).

Thanks again.

Definitely one of the more useful!

Thanks for the useful, factual, and uncontroversial advice! I was wondering how to do that (bolds and italics) and have often used other character surrounding desired words just to "set them apart" from the rest of the text. I'll try to remember to use HTML. (Not that HTML is new to me, I just never knew using it here would work. Maybe I should have read the directions! :P )

HTML for Dummies

Or a simple, easy to understand explanation. However you choose to see it, it was clear and concise. Well done.
