Formatting a list of questions and answers

    How would you format a list of questions and answers in a hub?

    I started out with two separate bulleted lists in two different text modules, the first list containing the questions, the second containing the answers. After a while, the lists got long and I decided I needed to keep each answer with the corresponding question, so I made each question be a short paragraph with the answer in a bullet after it.

    Is there a "standard" way to format questions and answers in a hub?

    Thanks!

      Not particulary I personally would think the second way you described setting them out is perfectly normal.

      we cannot format answers and question after submission in hubpages.

        The thread is about questions and answers in a hub. Try to read the thread.

    You could use a table, which would allow you to present the questions and answers side by side. You can then use bold type and other formatting to distinguish between the columns. This would work best with short questions and answers; otherwise what you have outlined sounds fine.

    I've found it easiest to simply bold questions and leave answers unbolded.  That way one can easy visually distinguish between the two and the Q&A are closely paired! 
    This is also common formatting for interviews, so readers will understand what you're doing right away, whereas when you use bullets, it'll be less clear.

      I agree. I prefer the method that you have suggested.

        I too agree. I feel that is the better method.

    Question in bold and answer in ordinary fonts is the right formatting method
