Advanced text formatting

We don't include complex text formatting tools (fonts, colours, tables etc.) on your website as these introduce inconsistencies and often result in messy code being generated. However, we do have a few formatting option which you can make use of and a way to include links to other pages or websites of interest to your customers.

We advise that you make minimum use of the bold, italic and bullet points as overuse can make your web page harder to read.
