Apologies if a similar question has been posted before.

Ever since ProZ updated their profile editor, I have been unable to create a nice-looking 'About Me' (Bio) section, even after digging around in the WYSIWIG editor and trying to insert HTML tags.

For example, I want to make a certain heading red, but no matter what kind of HTML tag I insert, the published version of my Bio shows the heading as black. Only the hyperlinks are a different colour. It also doesn't see

For example, I want to make a certain heading red, but no matter what kind of HTML tag I insert, the published version of my Bio shows the heading as black. Only the hyperlinks are a different colour. It also doesn't seem to make a difference if I insert the heading as or or , etc., even though this should alter the way that the heading looks.

Similarly, I want to make my paragraphs justified, but the editor only provides left justify, right justify and centre.

The ProZ article about how to use CSS (https://www.proz.com/translation-articles/articles/3854/1/'About-me'-with-style-–-using-CSS-to-enrich-your-presentation-on-ProZ.com-with-typography) just confuses me further.

Does anyone have any suggestions or a list of tags that I can use?

Thank you!

The only one tag pair that helped me to change the color is ( ) ( for red colour). I used the following color codes chart to find the right color: ...

Unfortunately, I didn't find the right way to change a paragraph position (e.g. to center) with tags. I was able to do that just with the help of spaces.

Maybe someone else could share a better way to center a paragraph.
