Steps for formating COH post:

1. Get docx file from Advancement Chair
2. Convert the file to text file.
3. Run coh_change_name.py to replace all scout names with first name and last name initial
4. Format the converted file as follows:
– Format the file with MODERATE efforts as close to the docx file as possible.
– Divide the article into sections. Each section may have a heading and body. Add <p>…</p> tags if needed to separate the heading from the previous section.
– Add <hx>…</hx> and <b>…</b> tags if the heading needs larger font or bold characters.
See example in the following code bits

<code>
<p>
<h2><b>COURT OF HONOR</b></h2>
<h3><b>TROOP 103</b></h3>
<h3><b>September 23, 2013</b></h3>
</p>
</code>

– Apply separate <p>…</p> tags if needed for separating one section from another.
– In the section body, if the whole body is a complete paragraph, use <p>…</p> to separate the paragraph from the one above and below.
– If the paragraph contains lines of separate columns, divide each line into different columns using the <div>…</div> tags.
– Apply <div>..</dev> tags to each of the columns. Use 50%, 50% for two columns, and 30%, 40%, 30% for three columns.
– Repeat the same tagging for each line that has separated columns.
– Add <p>…</p> if needed to separate the line from the previous one.
See example in the following code bits

<code>
<p>
<div style=”float:left;width:70%;”>
<h3><b>XII. Retire the Colors</b></h3>
</div>
<div style=”float:right;width:30%;”>
Purple Dragons
</div>
</p>
</code>

– Align the columns in each section to the corresponding column in the previous section.
– If a section contains multiple sub-section. Use <br><br> on the last line to separate this section from the next one.
– Add <b>…</b> tag to any heading only if it is important. But do not add too many bold fonts so that it would diminish their effect.
– See example https://troop103fremont.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/september-2013-fall-court-of-honor/
– Save the changes, add catagory and wordpress tag “Court of Honor”
