When copying abstracts from a word processing file or a PDF file, and pasting the text into InSPIRe's submission form, you are taking text from one environment into a completely different environment, and the processes used to display paragraps and other formatting styles may not be recognized. To fix this, you may need to use a few basic HTML tags:

  • for paragraphs use <p> and </p>
  • for line breaks use <br />
  • for bold font use <strong> and </strong>
  • for italicized font use <em> and </em>
  • for subscript use <sub> and </sub>
  • for superscript use <sup> and </sup>

Look at the example below:

The 1st thing you'd likely prefer is the <p> tag because it provides a more pronounced space between paragraphs.

In the paragraph above, did you notice how I emphasized the paragraph tag in bold? Within this 2nd example paragraph, You can see how <br /> displays the line below with a line break.
Notice how close it is to the line above? Well, that's all for now. I think I'll take a H20 break.

The html tags used to display the text above looks like this:

<p>The 1<sup>st</sup> thing you'd likely prefer is the <strong><p></strong> tag because it provides a more pronounced space between paragraphs.</p>

<p>In the paragraph above, did you notice how I <em>emphasized</em> the paragraph tag in bold? Within this 2<sup>nd</sup> example paragraph, you can see how <strong><br /></strong> displays the line below with a line break.<br />Notice how close it is to the line above? Well, that's all for now. I think I'll take a H<sub>2</sub>0 break.</p>
