Your paper must be written in HTML5, and to make the whole structure explicit, you need to use appropriate HTML tags. To write a paper it is very natural to use HTML, which was invented by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN in the early 1990s.

Whole structure

Body text should consists of multiple sections which are designated with section headers. <h2>denotes a section, and <h3> does a sub-section. The text must be in <p>. To sum up, <section> consists of one <h2> or <h3>, and some <p>s.

Title, Affiliation and Abstract

Title is written in <h1>. You do not use any HTML tag. Do not forget to edit <title> in <head>.

We don't care how you write your affiliation as long as we can know who is responsible for the paper. You don't need to show in the paper who is corresponding authors, who actually correspond to editors of KTTA Journal. However, the first author seems important. In addition, please show who is a gift/honorary author.

Body text

Each paragraph corresponds one <p>. You must not use <br> to show paragraph.

If you want to emhpasize something you use <em>. Something important is denoted by <strong>.

When you want to write some mathematical formulae, you must use MathML which is denoted by <math>. Do not use <sup> to show a power. <sup> and <sub> can be used in chemical formulae.

SVG is recommended to show some figures. PNG can be accepted.

gnuplot produce a SVG image with a command "set terminal svg".

You can use a table.

Table1: Table is not a desk.
Scientific sports since probability of realisation
Kimwipe Table Tennis 2008 100% (Everyone actually enjoy it)
Pipette Darts 2012 50% (There are some people playing it)
Fullerene Soccer not started 0% (No one does and little even know it)

Mathmematical expressions

To express mathematical formulae we use MathML. If you want write one inline do like this: k=0nk2=n33+n22+n6. and if you want to independently, do like this: k=0nk2=n33+n22+n6 Microsoft Mathematics is useful for producing MathML.


You are neither a publisher nor a typesetter, but a researcher; so you do not care style of the paper. It is the contents that matters. We would like you to use the template for writing. This guideline as such is the template. Please save it on your computer and edit it with your favorite text editor.


Please remember the fact that the font used in this template is quite different from the font used in the published paper.


Each section title is automatically numbered. If you want not to number a heading such as reference or acknowledgement, please add to the <hn> class="nonumber".


In reference section, you use <ol class="reference">tag and APA style. You should use <i>tag for the journal title and volume.
