Hour 4. Formatting and Stylizing Text > Formatting and Stylizing Text

Formatting and Stylizing Text

Adding a bit of formatting and a style or two to your text can add just the right visual punch. Lines and lines of text flowing from one margin of the page to the other, with no formatting, can be difficult for the eye to follow and discouraging for the reader. Adding headings, bulleted lists, and a bold word here and there goes a long way toward making your text easier to read.

This section uses standard HTML tags to create text formatting, but you can be much more consistent and create more text effects with less work by using cascading style sheets. The only drawback is that the cascading style sheets require a browser that is version 4 or higher. Follow this lesson to get familiar with text formatting in general. Then check out Hour 18 if you want more information about new ways to format your text.
