You all have probably wondered at some point how I do all this formatted text. Well, it actually has to do with HTML code, but the more basic (usually) elements. Here is how you do each (replace all "*" with "" (nothing)).



Helpful:

Bold:
<*b*>Bold text<*/b*>
or
<*strong*>Bold text<*/strong*>

Italic:
<*i*>Italic text<*/i*>

Underlined:
<*u*>Underlined text<*/u*>

Superscript:
<*sup*>Superscript text<*/sup*>

Subscript:
<*sub*>Subscript text<*/sub*>

Strikethrough
<*strike*>Strikethrough text<*/strike*> or
<*del*>Strikethrough text<*/del*>

<a href="shadowkirby47.deviantart.com/j…>Hyperlinks:
<*a*href="URL goes here">Hyperlink<*/a*>

:new:
Description List
An element that can be used for organizing and indentation.
Recommended method:
<*dl*>
<*dt*>Description title<*/dt*>
<*dd*>Indented text<*/dd*>
<*/dl*>

Other method (with possible format errors):
<*dl*>
<*dt*>Description title
<*dd*>Indented text
<*/dl*>




Somewhat Unhelpful:

Quotation offset

<*blockquote*> Quote text<*/blockquote*>

"Abbreviation"
<*abbr*>Text<*/abbr*>

Horizontal Line

<*hr /*>





If you want to know anything else or if something was unclear, please leave a comment about your question.

:new: :note: VERSION 3.2 UPDATE: In case you are confused, the numbering system is set up like this: [Major Update Number].[Format/Organization Update Number]
Also, because I'm always busy, updating this will be split up into many different versions.

:note: VERSION 2.1 UPDATE: I had to re-organize everything so it would look cleaner.

:note: VERSION 2 UPDATE: I apologize for it being so messy now, but I added four new formatting techniques, and two of them can actually be useful!

Heyo!! Your journal was informative & helpful thanks :>

I was wondering.. in an html format..
How do I put two or more paragraphs on one line in a journal?

Like for example:

Instead of
(paragraph1)
(paragraph2)
(paragraph3)
     etc,

it becomes
(paragraph1) (paragraph2) (paragraph3).. and so on

If y'all are wondering how to do it, don't add * and it should work.
(Sorry, that sounded much more salty than it should've)
