Including HTML in TrackStar annotations
Our first advice to all TrackStar users is to save a draft of your Track's links & annotations in a word processed document. It's easy to copy-paste these items into TrackMaker. If you include HTML in your annotations though, be sure to use a sans serif font like Arial, Helvetica, or Verdana. If you use serif (curly) fonts like Times New Roman in HTML, you may run into trouble. Browsers sometimes misinterpret certain curly characters, like quotation marks, apostrophes, and commas, especially when used in tags.
