I guess it could be argued that readers of "The Swamp" are likely to be political junkies who are used to drawing conclusions about politicalSee how "poles" is struck through (stricken through? neither one of them sounds right) and "polls" is underlined? The strikethrough means to delete something, and the underline means to add it. You see them used a lot in drafts of bills in the legislature and other legal documents.
poles,polls, but I still think somebody's reaching a little too hard for a political angle here. The story is about Al Gore's being awarded the Nobel Prize, but that isn't my problem. What I have a problem with is the way The Trib handled the survey research data here.
How did I indent that block quote? Would you believe there's a bracket-blockquote-bracket tag? Would you believe I'd been doing Web publishing six years before I discovered how to do it? Here's a link to the Webmonkey HTML Cheatsheet. It lists a whole series of common HTML tags (not all of which you can use in Blogger), and it gives you an idea of how much you can do in HTML. Notice how 99.99 percent of the tags come in pairs?
