I used to be obsessed with headlines.
I would take my favorite articles and add bold font and color to the headline.
I didn’t like how the text was hard to read or the color was muted.
It was all a blur.
Now, I’m glad I got the right one.
I have a few tips to make headlines more legible.
You can make headlines a bit more readable by using the text-decoration: none keyword.
The bold text is there to help you tell the story more clearly.
For example, this headline for the Washington Post reads: President Donald Trump was not briefed on the chemical attack in Syria until the following morning.
Now this headline is a bit clearer: President Trump was briefed on Tuesday.
I love the bold text.
And it makes the headline a little easier to read.
If you want a bit of extra legibility, you can use the keyword: quote.
If I want to put a quote in a headline, I’ll put the quote around the top of the headline: Trump was asked about his response to chemical attack on Syrian town.
Here’s the quote: “I will not accept a red line.”
That is the best headline you can make.
But here’s a little trick I learned over the years that makes headlines a little more readable.
To read more about this, read the full article.
I added a few words to the text to make the headline more legibly.
For instance, I added this line: “The chemical attack, which occurred on Tuesday, killed at least 40 people, injured dozens more and destroyed much of the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun, Syria.”
Here’s what that headline would look like if I used the keyword “Trump”: Trump was confronted by a military aide, who asked him about the chemical weapons attack on Syria.
The aide responded that Trump had promised to make sure that chemical weapons never again fall into the hands of terrorists.
Trump responded that he would never do that.
Now the headline reads: Trump said that he never would use chemical weapons again.
Here are a few examples: Trump told reporters that the chemical weapon attack on a Syrian town was the result of a false flag operation.
That is not true.
It is an act of terrorism.
Trump said he had a “very good relationship” with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
This is not accurate.
Putin did not meet with Trump during the presidential campaign.
Putin is a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and he is a strong supporter of the regime.
He is not a supporter of ISIS.
Trump called the Syrian attack a “red line.”
The attack was not a “Red Line.”
The White House did not use the term “redline” to describe what happened in Khan Sheikhun.
I did use it, but the phrase was removed.
The term “Red line” was not used by the White House when describing the attack.
Trump has not met with Putin before the attack, so there is no reason to believe he has known about it.
Trump also didn’t respond to questions about the attack during the campaign.
Here is the text of the first sentence: “And then it turned out that it was false flag.
And then it was an excuse for getting rid of Assad, and now it’s an excuse to get rid of ISIS.”
Here is how it reads in the headline now: Trump did not say that he “didn’t do” the attack in Khan Shaykhun.
Instead, he said, “They lied.”
The quote at the top now reads: “Trump said that Assad had no chemical weapons and that the attack was a false-flag operation.
Putin has said he never knew Assad had chemical weapons.”
Trump did say he would “never” use chemical weapon again.
The sentence now reads, “And he was very nice to me.”
Here are two examples: When Trump was challenged by reporters during the 2016 presidential campaign, he repeatedly refused to say whether he had ordered chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
He claimed he would not, and the campaign refused to retract or apologize for it.
After Trump made this statement, the campaign responded by saying that the statements were “untrue.”
Trump’s campaign also released a statement in which Trump said the statement was “just an example of what is going on” with the campaign: “We had the opportunity to respond to this false accusation from the Obama administration.
I made it clear that any chemical weapons use by the Assad regime would be unacceptable and would lead to a response that is both effective and predictable.
We did not do that, and that is what happened.”
The campaign later apologized for the statement, and Trump said during the second presidential debate that he was not trying to mislead voters.
Here it is in the title now: “After being asked to respond directly to President Obama’s false claims that he did not order the use of chemical weapons, I said that if he is referring to the chemical attacks that took place in Khan Shaikhun, I did not personally order them.”
