+<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>Text formats</B></P>
+<P>When writing text in Moodle there are currently two formats you can choose
+ to produce your text.
+<P><B>Moodle auto-format</B></P>
+<P>This format is best for when you are using normal web forms for entry
+ (instead of the Richtext HTML editor). Just type text normally, as if sending
+ and email (for example).
+<P>When you save your text, Moodle will do a number of things to automatically
+ format your text for you.
+<P>For example, URLs such as
+ <A HREF=""></A> or even
+ <A HREF=""></A> will be turned into links.
+<P>Your line breaks will be retained, and blank lines will start new paragraphs.
+<P>Smiley characters such as :-) will automatically become their graphical equivalents.
+<P>You can even embed HTML code if you want to and it will be retained.
+<P ALIGN=RIGHT>Click <? helpbutton("text", get_string("helptext")) ?> for more details</P>
+<P><B>HTML format</B></P>
+<P>This format assumes the text is pure HTML. If you are using the
+ HTML editor to edit text then this is the default format - all
+ the commands in the toolbar are producing HTML for you.
+<P>Even if you are not using the Richtext HTML editor, you can use HTML code
+ in your text and it should come out exactly as you intended.
+<P>Unlike the Moodle auto-format, no automatic formatting is performed.
