You've spent hours writing the perfect content for your organization's next web update.

If you're not familiar with the elements and attributes used in HTML, it can be very complex and difficult to manipulate. Users with little or no formal training can easily find themselves searching on the Internet or digging through manuals in an effort to figure out which tag is incorrect or where an angle bracket is missing.
