HTML Editing Options

Insert HTML tags in uppercase - Check this box to insert HTML tags in uppercase instead of lowercase. If the document being edited is an XHTML document (as determined by the document's DOCTYPE), then this option may have no effect because HTML tags and attributes should be in lowercase in XHTML documents. This option is not enabled by default.

Use Ctrl+B for <strong> (instead of <b>) and Ctrl+I for <em> (instead of <i>) - The "b" and "i" elements are often incorrectly used to indicate strong and emphasized text, respectively. It is better to use the "strong" element to indicate strong emphasis and the "em" element to indicate emphasis. Note that the "b" and "i" elements are considered presentational instead of structural. Presentation of HTML should be done by using CSS instead of by using HTML elements like "b" and "i". Uncheck this option to revert to the old behavior of using Ctrl+B for "b" and Ctrl+I for "i". This option is enabled by default.

Auto-complete end tags - Check this box to automatically complete end tags for certain tags after "</" is typed. For example, if auto-complete end tags is enabled, then typing "</" will result in "</strong>" if the previous unended start tag was "<strong>". End tags will not be completed for start tags ending in "/>". This option is enabled by default.

Auto-type end tags - Check this box to automatically type end tags for certain tags when the '>' key is pressed to end a start tag. For example, if auto-type end tags is enabled, then typing "<strong>" will result in "<strong></strong>", with "</strong>" automatically being inserted and the insertion point being placed between the start tag and the end tag. End tags will not be inserted for empty-element start tags ending in "/>". This option is not enabled by default.
