“HTML Columns, Tables, and Post Styling” Challenge

Once you have some basic familiarity with HTML, you can use the HTML Editor to add code that overrides the Visual Editor’s defaults — handy for poets, creative writers, and anyone who has a very specific idea of how they want their posts to look.

Today, open your draft post from yesterday, and create either a column or table from scratch using HTML. (You can trash the post when you’re done.) Visit the resource page to explore:

  • How to use preformatting to space text exactly as you’d like
  • How to control line breaks and indentation
  • How to create columns
  • How to add tables

The Visual Editor does a pretty good job of formatting content in a neat, reader-friendly way. But what if you have a particular vision for your post, and it doesn’t give you enough flexibility? HTML to the rescue.
