HTML Markup Tutorial
There are two kinds HTML tags that are permitted. Let's call them string tags and block tags.

String Tags

String tags are called as such because they don't force a new line. The string tags include the following: a, b, blue, em, font, green, i, red, strong, u

a: This is an anchor tag, and it is used to create a clickable link. The anchor tag needs an href attribute, which stands for hypertext reference and specifices the destination of a clickable link.

This markup: <a href="http://www.google.com">Click here to go to Google!</a> Creates this: Click here to go to Google!

b, strong: These are bold and strong tags, respectively, and they are used to create bold text.

This markup: This is <b>bold</b>, and this is <strong>strong</strong>. Creates this: This is bold, and this is strong.

i, em: These are italic and emphasis tags, respectively, and they are used to create italic text.

This markup: This is <i>italic</i>, and this is <em>empahized</em>. Creates this: This is italic, and this is emphasized.

u: This is an underline tag, and it is used to created underlined text.

This markup: This is <u>underlined</u>. Creates this: This is underlined.

red, green, blue: These are pseudo tags, and they are used to create red, green, or blue text.

This markup: This is <red>red</red> and <green>green</green> and <blue>blue</blue>. Creates this: This is red and green and blue.

font: This is a font tag, and it is used to create text of any color and set the font to Arial, Courier, or Times. The font tag needs a color attribute or a face attribute, or both, to set the text style.

This markup: This is <font color="#ff00cc">pink</font> and <font face="Arial">Arial</font> and <font color="#ff00cc" face="Arial">pink and Arial</font>. Creates this: This is pink and Arial and pink and Arial.


Block Tags

Block tags are called as such because they do force a new line. The block tags include the following: blockquote, h1, h2, h3, h4, hr, img, p, ol, ul

h1, h2, h3, h4: These are heading tags, and they are used to offset text as a header.

This markup: This is <h1>H1</h1> and <h2>H2</h2> and <h3>H3</h3> and <h4>H4</h4>. Creates this: This is
H1
and
H2
and
H3
and
H4
.

p: This is a paragraph tag, and it is used to add space around a portion of text.

This markup: <p>This text is within a paragraph tag.</p> Creates this: This text is within a paragraph tag.

blockquote: This is a blockquote tag, and it is used to indent and add space around a portion of text.

This markup: <blockquote>This text is within a blockquote tag.</blockquote> Creates this: This text is within a blockquote tag.

ol, ul: These are ordered and unordered list tags, respectively, and they are used to create numbered and bulleted list items. Both list tags need at least one nested li tag, which stands for list item.

This markup: <ol> <li>Item one</li> <li>Item two</li> </ol> <ul> <li>Item one</li> <li>Item two</li> </ul> Creates this:
  1. Item one
  2. Item two
  • Item one
  • Item two

hr: This is a hard right tag, and it is used to draw a line and move the cursor to a new line.

This markup: <hr> Creates this:

img: This is an image tag, and it is used to display an image. The image tag needs a src attribute, which stands for source and specifices the location of the image. The image tag also accepts width, heigh, and align attributes. If specified, width and height are to be in pixels and align can be left, middle, or right.

This markup: <img src="./images/logo.png"> <img src="./images/logo.png" width="625" height="35"> <img src="./images/logo.png" width="225" height="75" align="right"> Creates this:



Note that the src attribute above is a relative link. An absolute link can also be used. An asbolute link is of the form http://www.domain.com/images/logo.png.


Final Comments

String and block tags are permitted in the syllabus fields, except for the grading policy table, where only string tags may be used. The resulting syllabus will render according to your markup, even if your markeup is incorrect. If you choose to use HTML markup, be sure to nest tags correctly and close your tags!
