From the author support emails today, Peter asks, “How do I get bullet points to show up in my ezine articles? They’re there when I create my article and then disappear when I cut and paste into your form.”
The first fundamental problem is that you are copying from MS Word directly into our article submission interface. This is a mistake unless you’ve already disabled smartquotes. Better to copy/paste from a true text editor (MS Word is not a text editor).
The answer to your question: You need to include UL and LI tags to form bullet points. The cousin to HTML bullet points is a numbered list: OL and LI tags. UL gives BULLETS, OL gives NUMBERED LISTS. Hope this helps.
3 Quick Steps To Adding BULLETS To Your Article:
Step 1) Copy and paste from WORD to your favorite true text editor. I use EditPlus. UltraEdit, Notepad, and Notetab are popular choices.
Step 2) Add the UL and LI tags, any B tags or I tags amd remove any smartquotes you left in there by accident.
Step 3) Copy and paste from your text editor to your EzineArticles article submission interface.
Done. You’ve got bullets.
