HTML in Postings

140Plus does some automatic formatting, such as converting URL's to links.

You can use HTML tags in your posting to do additional styling of the text.

Basic HTML Tags

These tags provide basic HTML text formatting and have no arguments. They function just like the normal HTML versions, and all but <hr> need to be closed.

b, blockquote, code, em, h1, h2, h3, h4, hr, i, s, strong, sup, u

Links

Most URL's in postings will be converted to links automatically. You can add explicit links with HTML, as shown below.

a
<a href="{url}" (title,target)>{content}</a>

Images

You can add images from external sites using the <img> tag.

img
<img src="{src}" (alt,align,width,height)>

Lists

ol, ul, list, li
List tags function just as they do in HTML. List items must be enclosed in <li></li>.

dl, dt, dd
Definition lists are also supported, using standard tags.

Tables

Table tags are supported with common arguments.

table, tr, th, td, tbody, thead
tbody and thead tags are supported, and recommended, but are not required.
