HTML in description

I know I can use basic HTML in the metadata description, and I do know basic html.  However when I type in <b> bold </b> for example, the html code still shows up (the word doesn't appear in bold.  What am I doing wrong?  Or should I wait and do this in authorcentral once the book is published?

Re: HTML in description

The description is displayed in a text box--it doesn't show any formatting, just the markup you entered.  When displayed on the Amazon page, though, the formatting will take effect.

 

Before CS pulled the plug on the e-store, you could set up an e-store page and view the formatted html to gain some assurance that the markup worked as intended.

Re: HTML in description

"Limited" is definitely an apt description, but it does allow an easy way to use basic tags (italics and such) and to separate paragraphs.
