    Is there any way to include HTML formatting (<B>, <br>, etc.) in the shopping cart?

    I'd like to have something like:


    <b> Product Title</b><br>
    Short product description.


    I tried simply including the formatting as above but doesn't show up.

    cart setup>customize>other messages and settings>shipping message/terms of biz/payments message all allow for html. Is that what you mean?

    That's not what I mean.

    I want the products that are listed in the shopping cart to be formatted.

    I've seen this done on someone's mal's cart (some flower shop which I've forgotten the url for).

    Here's the example I was talking about.

    The site below, using Mal's ecart, has formatted text in the shopping cart.

    http://www.babybouquetsandbaskets.com/item_10/Baby-Bouquet-Blue.htm

    Add the item to the cart to see what I mean.

    WOW! Good question! I'm using the free cart--do you think you can do this in premium?

    I figured it out:

    If you put th tags in {} instead o f<> it'll work, e.g., {b} bolded text {/b}


    But it doesn't seem to be documented anywhere. I wonder what other cool features are undocumented.

    E.g.,

    <select name="productpr">
    <option value="{b}Aphasia Tutor 1 - Words (HOME){/b}{br}Product#AT1H :99.50"> HOME $99.00 </option>
    <option value="Aphasia Tutor 1-Words (DELUXE) Product#AT1D:129.5"> DELUXE $129.50 </option>

    </select>

    I think they are using a secondary cart that uses mals. like option cart or pappashoppe like it says.
