Repeat Signage Basic HTML

HTML is the language used to create website pages.  It uses tags so that text can be formatted.  For example, the text:

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog

The lazy dog is in bold.  The code to get the last two  words in bold is to surround them with <strong> tags:

The quick brown fox jumped over the <strong>lazy dog</strong>

The Repeat Signage data grid control support the following HTML formatting commands.   Please email support @ if you need any help with this.
