Don't use . Instead, start each paragraph with and end with .

Remove those ENTITY TYPE symbols. I have no idea what that is, but it's not reading. Are you trying to put smileys in? Smileys are <SMILEY TYPE=""/>, but be warned: in Pliny, they will show up at the end of the line of text, so don't try to use them.


Try again, and see if you get any red text telling you what else you're doing wrong. smiley - laugh

I removed the words "ENTItY TYPE" as you suggested. What I got was
<"A name was started with an invalid character. 1"/>.

Also, I would like to put spaces between the paragraphs. Do I use or perhaps

Glad to hear it, Any. smiley - smiley

I'm afraid that I'm going to drive Dmitri crazy any day now. It's not what I want, but the fickle finger of Fate seems to point in that direction. smiley - sadface

I will probably change numerals to spelled-out words so I can work around the issue.

The will make spaces between paragraphs.

If you want more space between paragraphs, put in an empty .

I think you wanted to make a numbered list. Here is how to make a numbered list:

Hi, Dmitri

Yes, I'd like to submit it for some issue in December. I probably have hours of experimenting ahead of me, and possibly some non-H2G2 searches for tutorial help. Much of the material in H2G2 was written in 2003 or earlier. The Guide ML "clinic" shows little or,m no use (judging by conversations) over the ;last 15 years. Fine. It probably means that a lot of people caught on very fast. I may be more of a slow, non-intuitive learner.

It took me ten minutes to form the library computer (where I posted my previous comment) and my home computer (where I am now), and in that time I see that you have successfully formatted my article. I have copied the text version and kept it for future reference.
Bravo! Well-done! smiley - applause
