Hello,

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the language in which all pages on the Web are written.

Below is a list of basic HTML tags and their descriptions. I hope you all will find this helpful in building your Websites.

<HTML> </HTML> - Identifies the file as an HTML document to the program opening it.

<HEAD> </HEAD> - Identifies the document’s head area, where you can code information about your document, including its title.

<TITLE< </TITLE> - Formats the documents title, which appears in the browser’s title bar.

<BODY> </BODY> - Identifies the document’s body area, which contains the Web page contents that appear in the browser’s window.

<BR> - Adds a line break; does not require a closing tag.

<P> - Adds a blank line before and after the current paragraph; does not require a closing tag.

<CENTER> </CENTER> - Horizontally centers the enclosed text or image.

<U> </U> - Adds underline format to text.

<STRONG> </STRONG> - Adds bold format to text. NOTE: Do not use the <B> </B> tags for bold because not all browsers will interpret.

<EM> </EM> - Adds italic format to text. NOTE: Do not use the <I> </I> tags for italic because not all browsers will interpret.

For highlighting text, you would use the following tags:

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00">Your Text Goes Here</span>

The #FFFF00 you see above is the value for yellow. To view all HTML color names see http://webmonkey.wired.com/webmonkey/reference/color_codes

<A> </A> - Marks the beginning and end of a hypertext link.

<A HREF="URL

Example: <A HREF="http://www.mywebsite.ws">Click Here</A>

To open your Website in a different window use the following:

<A HREF="http://www.yourwebsite.ws" TARGET="_blank">Click Here</A>

<IMG> - Used to insert an inline image in the document.

<IMG SRC="Document - The source of the inline image

<IMG BORDER="Value – The size of the border around the image, in pixels.

<IMG HEIGHT="Value – The height of the image in pixels.

<IMG WIDTH="Value – The width of the image in pixels.

<IMG HSPACE="Value – The amount of space to the left and right of the image, in pixels.

<IMG VSPACE="Value – The amount of space above and below the image, in pixels.

Example: <IMG SRC="image.jpg" Width=200 Height=60>

<FONT> </FONT> - Used to control the appearance of the text it encloses.

<FONT COLOR="Color – The color of the enclosed text.

<FONT SIZE="Value – Size of the font on a seven point scale. (1 is smallest, 7 is largest). Specifying SIZE=5 sets the font size to size 5 on the scale.

Example: <FONT COLOR="#FF0000" SIZE=3 FONT=Times New Roman>Global Domains International</FONT>

How do you put in the GDI calculator on a Web page?

Answer submitted by RodB.

This is a bit complex. You need to put GDI's PopupCalc script in the top of the HTML of your page or a link to an offpage javascript .js page containing the script. Technically an offpage script is better and far more elegant.

Then code like this should do it:-
<a title="Income Calculator" href="javascriptopupCalc('http://website.ws/kvmlm2/st_calculator.dhtml', '', '');"><img height="100" src="http://images.website.ws/kvmlm2/images/calc_small.gif" width="110" border="0">

Question submitted by Deborah H.

Hi,
The html for the movie I asked for and someone was so kind  to post for me was deleted from the forum.
So I don't have it to go back to and use on my site.
Would the fellow that posted the html (or anyone else who has it), please re-post it?
I "really" want that on my site.
Thank you VERY MUCH!!

Question submitted by KLopez.

I have a question. How do I put my voice on my website? I would like to record my voice and put it on there - welcoming people to my page or something but I'm not sure how to do it. I've seen a few pages that have that up but I have no idea how I would do that.

Also, how can I get my movie presentation to show up on my website? I have seen several peoples websites and they have this on there also.

Thanks in advance for your help.

To add a clickable link to a WAV file on your website:

First, remember where you placed your sound file. Organization is key when making a website. Feel free to place your sound files in a "audio" directory, your images/pictures in an "images" directory, etc. That makes it much easier to refer to them when building a page with HTML (or, I assume, using the SiteBuilder, although I haven't used that.) Next, insert this HTML in the area you want to include the link:

<a href="directoryname/filename.wav">Click To Hear My Introduction</a>

...where "directoryname" is the directory your sound file is in, and "filename.wav" is the name of the sound file. If the file is in MP3 format than the extention would be ".mp3" instead of ".wav". If you uploaded your sound file to the root level of your website (that is, not in a directory created by you) then you'd leave the directory name out of the portion in quotes.

Hope this helps!

EXACTLY how do I know my directory name (I know... newbie question!)

When you organize files on your own Windows computer you create a heiarchy of folders (also called directories) to store them in, correct? You can do the same thing with your web space. When you login to your web server via an FTP program (such as Filezilla) you see only one folder with the name of your domain...click on that and you are now in the "root" or bottom-level directory. Every file you put there will be accessed on the web by typing:

http://www.yoursitename.ws/yourfile.html

When you organize web content in directories the web address changes depending on the name of the directory. If you put all of your digital photos in a directory called "photos" then all of the files files in that directory can be accessed on the web by typing in:

http://www.yoursitename.ws/photos/filename.jpg

If you want to organize them further into vacation photos and business photos create seperate directories to put them in. To make it easy I'll call those new directories "vacation" and "business". So files in those directories are accessed on the web with:

http://www.yoursitename.ws/photos/vactaion/filename.jpg
http://www.yoursitename.ws/photos/business/filename.jpg

Probably more than you were looking for, but it makes a good overview for those really new to how websites work.

Cheers,

Jim

I think this might be an HTML issue, so I guess this is the thread to ask.  My website is still a work in progress, but I've found some of my pages do not display correctly in Firefox, and I can't figure out why.  I've looked and looked until my eyes are crossed.  I'm a newbie to sitebuilding.  Anyway, my website is and I've noticed the following pages do not display correctly for me in Firefox, but they seem fine in my IE window -  - could someone please tell me what's causing it to display incorrectly?  I'm thinking the coding got messed up somehow, but I can't see where, so if you could please be specific that would be great lol - THANKS!!!

Hi Chuck,

When saving your word document, choose file and save as then HTML document.  Then after it is saved, choose view HTML source and copy and paste into your site builder.  If it's too long, you will have to copy and paste in sections.  You will get an error if it's too long.

Have a great day, after all, today is the first day of the rest of your life!!

Bill:

You could try this.  It might be the page you want.

http://website.ws/YOURUSERNAME/hosting

While loading it will re-direct to a much longer url but that should be okay.

Hope this helps.
