I am sure there are other ways, but for me this was very easy.

If you want to format you description..............Do the following

1. in an html editor, open a new page, and type or copy you text in and then format it the way you want it to look.

2. view the source code and copy the needed info to your description In this case my exstended description is shown as a bullet list.

Example full source code:

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 3</title>
</head>

<body>

<ul>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">True Brew Handbook </font>
</li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">6.5 Gal Primary Fermenting
bucket w/ D&G Lid</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">6.5 Gal bottling bucket
w/spigot</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Fermtech springless bottle
filler</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Adhesive thermometer </font>
</li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">True Brew Rack and fill kit</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Hydrometer</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Emily double lever capper</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">bottle brush</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">3 piece airlock</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">C_Brite sanitizer 8-pack.
</font></li>
</ul>

</body>

</html>




The part you cut and paste is:

<ul>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">True Brew Handbook </font>
</li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">6.5 Gal Primary Fermenting
bucket w/ D&G Lid</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">6.5 Gal bottling bucket
w/spigot</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Fermtech springless bottle
filler</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Adhesive thermometer </font>
</li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">True Brew Rack and fill kit</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Hydrometer</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">Emily double lever capper</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">bottle brush</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">3 piece airlock</font></li>
<li><font face="arial" color="black" size="1">C_Brite sanitizer 8-pack.
</font></li>
</ul>

dude, that's way too much ascii for what you want to do. try this:
<style>
li{
color: #000000;
font-family: Arial,Verdana;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: normal;
font-style: notmal;
}
</style>

<ul>
<li>True Brew Handbook </font>
</li>
<li>6.5 Gal Primary Fermenting
bucket w/ D&G Lid</font></li>
<li>6.5 Gal bottling bucket
w/spigot</font></li>
<li>Fermtech springless bottle
filler</font></li>
<li>Adhesive thermometer </font>
...
</ul>

by the way. I just realised that this text is going to want to be input into the text box in the back end of VPASP. It would be best to have that style script in a style sheet.
put it without the <style> tags into a blank text file named
stylesheet.css

then call that page from your shoppageheader
(put this onto any page, I reccomend right at the top before anything else. That way it's easy to find and note that it's there)
<!--#include file="common.css"-->
