    So does that mean I need to use CSS to style my articles to have them come out as I want?

    Hey Debbie!

    The CSS controls the overall look and feel of your Help Center, but you can format the text of your articles in the article editor.

    That is the problem; the formatting is not consistent in the article editor.  If I had access to the CSS would it make it easier to format and style articles?

    Hey Debbie,

    I guess I'm not entirely sure what you mean here... can you go into more detail about what's not looking right?

    For example, I noticed that NUMBERED paragraphs in the editor look correct, but in the published article they all began with "1."

    Hey Stephen - 

    You could try enabling "unsafe HTML" in your Help Center settings. If that doesn't resolve the issue, it may be something with the CSS or HTML, in which case the best answer is to open a support ticket so that we can dig into the specifics.

    How about the inline styling on the wysiwyg editor? Because I styled it properly on the edit but when published. The styling didn't appear.

    Hi Paul! Welcome to the Community!

    Can you be more specific about what you're seeing? If you could post some screenshots it would be very helpful!

    Hi @Paul,

    It's because the inline styling is removed by the WYSIWYG editor once the article is published.

    I will recommend you to use CSS for the styling.

    Any reason why it is doing it or how to have just a default styling for some of the elements? Like for the <tables> the default styling that we usually see on our browsers are removed.

    Hi @Paul,

    I recommend you to create common CSS classes for styling and add those classes in the article content.
