I guess I don’t need to know HTML to format in WordPress. They should tell you up front all you have to do is check the little box under your user profile and a whole nifty little toolbar takes the place of all those crazy HTML tags. Things are going to start looking much better now that I don’t have to try to figure out html for everything! If you want even more formatting options when you are writing a post, get to the page where you write a post and press alt+shif+v (in firefox) or alt+v (Internet Explorer) or ctrl+v (Mac) and you get a lot more options. Or just download the plugin here to do that automatically.
