Applies multiple HTML tags to the selected text, based on the number of blank lines between the lines.


  • Applies tags based on the number of blank lines between text blocks.
  • Highly customizable.
  • Optional ID and CLASS attributes for each tag.
  • The final result can be redirected to the Output window or to the selected text.

Customizable settings:

  • Three types of tags (defaults to H1, P and DIV).
  • ID and CLASS attribute values.
  • Line count used to determine which tag to apply.
  • Switch for converting the special characters ", ', &, < and > to HTML entities [new].
  • Where to send the formatted text.
  • Option for inserting blank lines in the final result.


  • To convert plain text blocks to HTML formatted text, select the text and invoke the plugin.
  • The default settings can be modified by invoking the preferences dialog using the plugin's drop-down menu.
  • For example, to create a HTML block that contain a heading and a paragraph followed by another heading and a paragraph, enter the text for the first heading, press Enter twice (so that there's a single blank line below the heading), and enter the paragraph text (without blank lines inside the paragraph). Press Enter three times at the end of the paragraph (so that there are two blank lines below the paragraph). Enter the text for the second heading and follow it with one blank line. Finally enter the text for the second paragraph. Now select all four blocks of text and invoke the plugin. The default settings will wrap the two text headings with <h1></h1> tags and the two text paragraphs with <p></p> tags.
