I would like to italicize some words in my description for my first KDP title. Will HTML tags (e.g. <em>) work when displayed on the product page, or will they be rendered verbatim? Also, if I use them, will I need to use paragraph tags and breaks instead of relying on white space?
I like to write the post up in Word (2003) and just Paste it into the the text field under the edit function of the book description.
I do not use anything except Bold and Italics
No bullet points or a numerical list!
Indidentally I use IE-8 and lately, the text entry areas of the Kdp Bookshelf have gotten "Slippery" like they are soapy -- if i click on an area, the text field will "squirt" up to the top and i will have to scroll back down to view the results
The Author central has crude text entry controls (like Bold etc) but if i click on the button to activate it, the text cursor will 'loose its place' and when I scroll back down and re establish the location, the bole button will Deactivate!
I can do a phrase in Word and make it bold and then copy that and paste it into the Author Central text entr field and after the text 'squirts up to the top, I can scroll back down and view the results (cumbersome but it works that way.
