Example: When creating a new article for a website sometimes it is necessary to cite a source or author. The text editor allows the user to add HTML tags to the post or page in order to accomplish this task.

Note: The HTML code you add must be well-formed and it must be listed in the allowed HTML tags list. You should also be aware that WordPress.com has some code restrictions, so JavaScript, embeds, and custom forms and not allowed for security reasons.
