 +====== HTML in Amazon Descriptions ======
  
 +You can include HTML code in your descriptions on Amazon. I'm using this to spruce up my Kindle book descriptions. In order to do so, you need to take your HTML and encode the //less than// and //greater than// signs into HTML entities. Take the following description as an example.
 +
 +<​code>​
 +<​h2>​Large Title</​h2>​
 +
 +<p>My description text goes here...</​p>​
 +</​code>​
 +  ​
 +That is encoded to the following.
 +
 +<​code>​
 +&​lt;​h2&​gt;​Large Title&​lt;/​h2&​gt;​
 +  ​
 +&​lt;​p&​gt;​My description text goes here...&​lt;/​p&​gt;​
 +</​code>​
 +  ​
 +I test my descriptions on the site itself using the Developer Tools in Google Chrome and then I encode them and paste that working code into the description field.
