What is HTML?
HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. It's used when making a website, and available to use on deviantART to customise what you are writing.

This guide goes a little above and beyond dA's FAQ entry (although I purposely left out anything to do with links, because they don't work on literature submissions). I also provided working examples, which might make the codes a little easier to understand. (Keep
