Directions This is what the public will see on your web site. It should be phrased so that the Menu Items and Matching Text make sense. It tasks the learner to identify or match two sets of things. By using STX you can include style instructions that will work no matter where your content is displayed - even if its used on sites that have totally different look-and-feels. Warning - by unchecking the "Enable STX" checkbox you can include advanced HTML tags. Be very careful as errors may render the page unusable.
