Basic html for article directories
When submitting articles online, you would usually not need to know HTML. But there are still a few article directories that only allows text submissions, and any formatting you need to do must be done also in text. This article goes into some detail about the following HTML tags: underline , bold , italics , line break , unordered html list , list item and anchor , and should be all that you need to know for a simple article. HTML tags are enclosed within angle brackets, and the HTML tags in this article are shown with a space before and after the opening and closing angle bracket. This is done so that they will not be mistaken for actual formatting tags. When you are submitting your own articles, you must remove both spaces. In addition, the text that is supposed to go into your articles will be in italics for easier reading. It might look a little daunting but I promise that you will end up with better looking articles, and it really is easy once you get the hang of it. Okay? Let’s continue… The Opening And Closing HTML Tags In most cases, HTML tags have an opening and a closing tag, although some tags are used singly. In the following example, the italics tag has an opening and closing tag and they need to be used together: This whole sentence is in italics. Note the opening and closing tags. But the line break tag does not need to be closed and is used as follows: There will be a line break after this sentence. Nesting This basically means that the tags can be used inside of each other. However, they cannot be interlinked. This is correct: The text in this sentence is in bold and italicized. This is another way that tags can be nested: The word underlined is underlined. This is wrong: The HTML tags are not nested properly. Bold, Italic And Underline Tag The bold, italic and underline HTML tags are , and respectively. They have a corresponding closing tag which are , and . They are used to bold your text, put it in italics and to underline it. The following will be in bold, in italics and underlined: This line is in italics, underlined and bold. Line Break Tag This tag is the only tag introduced here that does not need a closing tag. It is used to start a new line. It is used as follows: A line break follows this line. You can also put 2 or more line breaks together: You have inserted 2 line breaks after this sentence. The Anchor Tag This is the tag that you want to pay the most attention to as it is the most complicated. It is also the one that will bring visitors to your website. Let’s say you want to link to your website or blog at MySiteDotcom. you would write something like the following: Click here to visit my site. Take note that only “here” will be underlined and can be clicked. In addition, MySiteDotCom must be an actual url. Unordered HTML List And List Item Tag An unordered list can be created by using the unordered HTML list tag and the list item tag . They are used together to create the unordered list. For example, if you wanted an unordered list of 3 items, you would write something like the following: There are 3 items in the following unordered list: First Item Second Item Third Item Observe the nesting of the list item tags within the unordered HTML list tag. Conclusion Each article directory is different and each have their own sets of tags they will accept. But the tags introduced here will definitely stand you in good stead. When in doubt, read their guidelines and help files, and always use the preview feature before submitting.
