How to Type Bold in Craigslistby Kevin Lee
Using a simple Web programming trick, you can enhance your Craigslist ad by applying a bold effect to any word or phrase in your post.
Bold Your Text
Find a word or phrase you'd like to bold in your Craigslist ad and paste <b> before the text and </b> after the text. For instance, if you bold the phrase "mint condition," it will appear as follows: <b>mint condition</b>. The <b> and </b> HTML tags tell browsers to bold any text that appears between the two tags. Use this technique to bold as many words or phrases as you like in a Craigslist ad. Preview your ad before posting to ensure that you typed the <b> and </b> tags correctly.
As of November 2013, Craigslist no longer supports some other HTML tags for posts in the housing and sale categories. Those tags -- center, span, div, table, img, font and a -- provided the ability to format ads in advanced ways. A message warns you not to use these tags if you are posting in the sale or housing categories.
