Embracing Evernote's HTML

Recommended Posts

Notes are writtin in and rendered using HTML in Evernote, even if this isn't exposed to the user. On a mac, you can inspect a package's contents and I can easily find the default CSS used to render this HTML.

In the CSS, there are default rules for <div>, <p>, and several levels of <h#> tags. What I want to know is how to use these tags when I'm writing a note.

I want to be able to use a <p> tag when I want a margin separating my paragraphs, and a line-break when I don't. Evernote is equipped to render these the way I want, but I'm not sure how to actually insert the tags into my notes to get the formatting I want. Any ideas?

The Evernote note format is ENML, a fork of HTML
There's documentation at https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enml.php

>>I'm not sure how to actually insert the tags into my notes to get the formatting I want. Any ideas?

On a Mac, we can edit the note's  content.enml  file using a text editor app (I use Textastic)
I use a script to identify the file's location.  More information at

I was hoping for some trick to do so in Evernote's editor. No such luck without editing the note outside? It's strange that ENML defines elements that we can't use "natively".
