HTML Syntax Suggestions for Text Elements

Jane, the following are the only tags used in your document as I have revised it. There are better ways to achieve what is done with <OL> </OL> <UL> </UL> <LI>, but that's the fault of the Star Office export and I could have cleaned it up but didn't. My point is that this is all the html you need to learn to create lovely webpages, and, we could, of course, create an editor for you whereby these were imposed in WYSIWYG fashion.

<A HREF=""></A>
<A HREF=""></A>
