    you can add HTML to your posts alright, just disable the WYSIWYG editor from your profile page. Even then, the HTML is quite a bit restricted, you can use only a few formatting tags!!

    as for sidebar, no, you can’t do anything there, since that’s part of the theme & is not customisable!!

    well, I’ve tried using div, span & they can’t be used, then you can’t use the ‘style’ attribute with either of them or ‘p’ or ‘font’ tag etc.

    just create a test post & check for yourself which tags you can use & which you can’t!!

    you can use ‘a’, ’em’, ‘strong’, ‘ul’, ‘ol’, ‘li’ & ‘blockquote’ tags for sure, I’ve used them & they work fine!!

    well, I did and those posts not even ‘test’ ones.

    found no problems (beyond that rendering engines of some advanced browsers treat some tags in the rather strange manner).

    Marquee’s are horrible.. by a standards point of view, so is the blink tag.

    Uncheck the box next to that.

    Then you just use the write post section normally. Once you uncheck the box next to Use the Visual rich editor when writing, it’s just “plain” when you write.
