Krishna said, “I noticed and article you did about HTML basics – I then was looking at some articles and came across one that they had the html for bullets, bold etc in their article – I guess so other readers could pick this up easily. I see you don’t post your articles in that way. What do you recommend?”
Yeah, pretty conflicting message, eh?
The reason that I try to avoid using the HTML BULLETS and HTML NUMBERED LISTS in my syndicated articles is to make my article more universally available to prevent mis-interpretation. Sometimes publishers can be lazy and rather than use our handy EzinePublisher tool to grab a copy of the article, they will copy and paste the article. If I used HTML BULLETS or HTML NUMBERED LISTS, they might not copy and paste the HTML code that created the pretty bullets or numbered lists.
I’m trying to keep my articles in the lowest common denominator format that will increase my chances of not having the article miss-copy and pasted wrong… also, when Ezine Publishers use content, they don’t have the luxury of HTML code to make the pretty bullets or numbered lists… so by doing them without HTML, I make their job easier when using my content. Make sense?
