What are the choices in the Text Format drop down list?

The text editor can work in three different ways explained below. Make your choice of Text Format option from the drop down list under the Body field. A description of how HTML is handled for each choice appears under the drop down list. Click the More information about text formats link to the right of this list for a more complete description.

The options are:

  • Filtered HTML (the default) recognizes only a limited set of HTML tags.
  • Full HTML allows the page to be formatted using any HTML tag that exists. The editor displays a wider array of formatting tools you can use.
  • Plain Text does not display any formatting. With this option chosen, there is no icon toolbar.

All three formats will preserve line breaks, paragraph breaks, and soft returns and will automatically turn web and email addresses into links.
