Using the HTML Editor
    The Campus Intranet HTML Editor is one of the main tools for faculty, staff, and other
    content managers to enter and edit text. With the HTML Editor, you can enter, edit and
    format text, and insert pictures into your Web page. You can also “copy and paste”
    and “drag and drop” text from word processing programs into the HTML Editor.

    The HTML Editor functions much like a word processing program, as illustrated below.

    Note: This HTML Editor works correctly only with Microsoft Internet Explorer for
    Windows operating systems.
