One thing you noticed I'm sure was the some symbols are typed in a strange way.  The less than symbol requires  you to type &amp;lt; and the greater than symbol requires you to type &amp;gt;.  This is because those symbols are used as part of the normal tags.  If you really must enter an ampersand, you can type &amp;amp; to get it.

Other HTML tags known to work are the unordered list tags.  The tag to start an unordered list is &lt;UL&gt; and the tag to end an unordered list is &lt;/UL&gt;. Each item in the list begins with a special tag to mark the start of the item, and that tag is &lt;LI&gt;. There is no tag to end an item in the list.
