HTML Tags - Basic

Conference Manager Software uses HTML (HyperText Markup Language) within its forms to allow you to format instructions or information.

  • HTML instructions are called tags
  • A tag consists of an <element name> surrounded by left and right angle brackets
  • An <element name> tag marks the beginning of a section
  • The end of the section is then marked by the ending tag </element name>
  • End, or stop tags are always preceded by the slash / character

The table below displays a selection of very basic HTML tags to get you started.

*Note: It is advisable to use single quotes ' ' not double quotes when formatting html in conference manager
