this html guide is a good start for others that don't know how to do it. But it needs some more codes and different headings ect. it's an ok tutorial. but that's fine for the html codes and also requires a bit more examples. but it's a great list that it is good for formatting i kinda like the formatting codes but i cant find any other codes for html so that's all i got to say for this ( i am so sorry for repeating my self) ok so uhh i gave a good rating for you ok so bye
What do you think?

85 out of 89 deviants thought this was fair.

This tutorial has really good potential to help other deviants, even though it is not the most original idea on earth, It contains the majority of HTML for DeviantART. I like the way it is set out, which makes it easier to access and particular information without any hassle.

On the minus side, some stuff doesn't work, when clicking different things, and some things might have been able to do with a more thorough explanation. I know that might make it much longer, it's a bit lengthy already.

There is a lot about it I really like, and I think it was good that you put it up, as it is quite useful and overall, a good HTML guide that will help Deviants for years to come.

Sorry to bother but can you also use the HTML codes for coloring the test?

Take out the asterisks (*) and write only one of the three words.
Hope that helped :3]

I have a question. How do you get the code to show without it doing what it's meant for? Meaning, how do you show the code for bolding without actually having it just make things bold? I'm trying to do a journal with some code in it for people to copy and paste but I don't know how to just show the code
