Do you know what drives me nuts on eBay? When I view an item up for auction andrepparttar 117384 listing has no style whatsoever. There’s just a long scroll of text that gives onlyrepparttar 117385 briefest explanation of whatrepparttar 117386 product is and why I should buy it.

Writing a good auction listing is a topic for another article, but I can help those of you who want to spice up repparttar 117387 look of your auction listings with a simple template that will work inrepparttar 117388 eBay “Sell an Item” system.

FORMAT: Starts with

and ends with

LINE BREAK TAG: This tag is like a carriage return on your word processor or typewriter. This tag will allow you to start onrepparttar 117394 very next line. NOTE: You cannot use more than one Line Break Tag in a row – HTML ignores them.

FORMAT: Put a atrepparttar 117395 end ofrepparttar 117396 line
