4.2.2. HTML

TL;DR – Useful when planning on taking ChatGPT's responses and including them on your firm's website or blog post(s).

HTML is the language used to create and structure webpages. For lawyers and paralegals, having ChatGPT return its responses in HTML can simplify the process of updating your firm's website or blog. Also, some case management platforms, and other legal software tools include a WYSIWYG editor allowing you to create legal documents that are well-formatted, easily navigable, and visually appealing. Hence, having ChatGPT output its responses in HTML could save you a fair amount of copy+paste+formatting work.

Here's a snippet of a HTML response ChatGPT provided us with:

<h2>The Securities Act of 1933</h2>
<p>The Securities Act of 1933, known as the "truth in securities" law, aimed to restore investor confidence in the capital markets by providing more structure and government oversight.</p>

<h3>Section 2: Definitions</h3>
    <li><strong>Highlight 1</strong>: Defines key terminologies including "security," "issuer," "underwriter," and "prospectus," ensuring precise interpretation and application of the Act.</li>
    <li><strong>Highlight 2</strong>: The broad definition of "security" extends the Act's applicability to a range of financial instruments, from traditional stocks and bonds to more complex derivatives.</li>
    <li><strong>Highlight 3</strong>: Distinguishes between "issuers," who offer their own securities for sale, and "underwriters," who buy securities from issuers to resell to the public. This distinction becomes crucial in later sections.</li>

Having ChatGPT return its results in HTML format is as simple as adding "Provide your response in HTML." within your prompt.
