MARQUEE is a stupid tag. BLINK is another.

One works in Internet Explorer, the other works in Netscape.
I don't know which work, if at all, in Mozilla or Firefox.
But small loss if they don't.

Guest, 2 of the big players in the browser game got into competition to see who could claim power by providing the most irritating feature that only thier browser supported...

If you really want to know more about marquee, etc. try Mudguard here but ask him nicely.

Guest, all your blink examples work. You might not see it because of the browser you use. It was non standard HTML provided by Netscape. Microsoft had marquee instead.

1. The text to be modified is typically placed in a container, which means a beginning of the desired effect on th eleft, and an end on the right. So if you were trying to bold the text, it wold go:

[b]the text[/b]

The b starts the bolding and the "/b" ends it. If you use angle brackets < and >, only!!

What you would get is the text.

The commands vanish and the text shows the effect.

For a font color you would make a container defining the color like this:

[font color=red]the text[/font]



which if you used angle brackets would look like this:


the text

Does that make sense? You can then put one container inside another to double up on effects:

[b][font color=red]the text[/font][/b]

would produce (using angle brackets):

the text.

See? Adding a third container to make it italic woud look like this:

[i][b][font color=red]the text[/font][/b][/i]

which produces (using angle brackets):

the text.

A

You mean like this?



uses an "H1" bracket for the sise and a "<"FONT COLOR = #FF##(( for the color.

Let's see if it works...ok. Now, what if we add a "marquee" in brackets...


You mean like this?




Ah, most satisfactory. The left side of the containers is marquee, h1, fon t color, bold. Then the text. Then the right side closing brackets for bold, font, h1, and marquee.

Well, I didn't anticipate that the semi-colons would disappear in my previous post. I don't have a handy HTML name for a semi-colon so I'll just use &#59; to represent the semi-colon since its decimal value in the ASCII representation is 59.

The HTML names I mentioned above should have appeared with terminating semi-colons as follows:

&quot; produces "
&ldquo; produces “
&rdquo; produces ”
&#35; produces #
and of course &#59; produces ;.

I hope that's clear.

Ah yes... quotation marks. Here on Mudcat we can simply type the double quote symbol in simple text posting and it will be displayed as we intend. Sometimes, like in the middle of a hyperlink tag, it's best to enter a double quote by using it's HTML name, &quot. That way it won't be confused with the " symbol used to deliniate the URL in the HREF attribute of the anchor (<a...></a>) tag.

The HTML name &quot produces two small vertical tick marks, not a real set of typesetter's quotation marks. Often, when I wish to place quotes around some text in a post, I'll use the HTML names &ldquo and &rdquo which produce “proper” quotation marks more in keeping with the Roman font.

Cheers,

      - Mark

JOE OFFER:
RE: SCOTTISH GLOSSARY

I don't know whether it might be an improvement, but there seems to be a potential 3 to 1 reduction in file size if the Scottish Glossary is formatted as a Dictionary entry rather than as a table.

My wimpmobile machine (Win98, 64MB) wouldn't convert the whole thread in one pass, but did it in two.
My attempt to send the resulting 456K file broke off at about 50K, but there seems to be some reduction in total file size. I certainly didn't get multiMegs.

I'll forgo further messing with it, until I hear from some experts about whether this is an improvement, but I can provide fairly detailed description of the approach used.

PM me if it looks like it might be helpful, or ignore if not.

I'm off to Winfield in a few days, so may be out of touch after next weekend.

John
