Just six simple steps

(This option is for intelligent people like you.)


i) To create a Heading 1 put just one Equals sign (i.e. =) before the Heading and one Equals sign after it.

ii) To create a sub-heading (Heading 2) put two Equals signs (i.e. ==) before the sub-heading and two Equals signs after it.

iii) Make sure that there is no space between the first word of a paragraph and the left margin of the page. ALSO make sure that there is no space between the Equals signs before a Heading (or sub-heading) and the left margin of the page.

iv) Leave a blank line after every paragraph. If you are writing in ‘points,’ leave a blank line after every ‘point.’

v) If you want a word or phrase to appear in italics put two apostrophes (i.e. ') before the word/ phrase and two apostrophes after the word/ phrase. If you want a word or phrase to appear in boldface put three apostrophes (i.e. ') before the word/ phrase and three apostrophes after the word/ phrase.

vi) Every article must be put in at least two categories: a country and a subject. An article about cricket matches between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will, obviously, list two countries in the ‘categories.’

As simple as that.


NOTE: In MS Word you will find the apostrophe (i.e. ') in Symbols> More symbols> Basic Latin (top line, centre). It will be much simpler to copy the apostrophe ' from here and paste it into your document. If you are going to use the apostrophe frequently you can save it in the AutoCorrect options of your MS Word. (Take your cursor to the grey ribbon at the top of the MS Word page. Right click. Customise the ribbon> Proofing> AutoCorrect options. A box will appear. Under ‘Replace’ type Italics [or something like il for short]. Under ‘With’ paste the apostrophe twice. OK>OK. Similarly under ‘Replace’ type Boldface [or something like bb for short]. Under ‘With’ paste the apostrophe three times. OK>OK.)
