Sharon, since you can see it, it's

marquee surrounded by the normal pointy brackets

before the text, and

/marquee similarly surrounded after the text.

Largest header is H1, smallest H6.

If you can't see it, you're in Netscape, where the equivalent is blink(?). Don't quote me on that last, and don't tell MudGuard I've been promoting the use of these non-standard sillyisms.. boy, am I in trouble!

Have fun.

Yes, Noreen, you are in trouble now!

And blink has no similarity to marquee. Blink makes the text blink in Netscape 4.x browsers.

And neither marquee nor blink are HTML. Both are not even useful, as moving or blinking text distracts the user from the rest of the text.

Sharon, you are also in trouble for not telling!

span is an HTML element used to apply Cascading Style Sheets to text. style is the attribute which contains in its value the CSS you want to apply to the text.

background-color:yellow; color:red; font-size:300%

should be self-explanatory, especially if you look at the red on yellow smiley at 3 times the size of normal text.

"Cascading Style Sheets": I'm guessing that this means that one doesn't have to type the < and the > before and after every single style detail (color, font size, etc.), as in your example. Am I right?

From: Stilly River Sage
Date: 27 Oct 01 - 09:53 AM

The best book around for all of this html code is HTML 4 For the World Wide Web by Elizabeth Castro. It has been around for a number of years. She goes into attributes like background color (I used some on another recent test thread), and she talks about CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). Style sheets set the attributes for the entire document for any of the elements you choose to put there. I use them in the pages I design for the university library where I work, then my headlines will all be the same size and color, the body text font is set, the alignment is consistent, the background color is applied to each sheet. Anything I want different on those pages is given that attribute at that place on the page, and that command overrides the style sheet.

Style sheets can be written to apply to an entire document, so that they are their own file in the folder created for the document, and in each document in the head (look at source code to find the head, the body, etc for any page) there is a reference back to that style sheet. The visitor's browser refers there and displays the page accordingly. If the style sheet isn't working, the browser uses default settings.

Yes, you still must put your headline and paragrahp tags etc. in brackets. But that's all you do, is the simple command, not font face names and such. For other types of fonts (like if you want several types of text, for cutlines, for navagation elements, to appear in the alternate text or the URL's, etc. you can create p. class code. I have things in my styles sheets that when put on the page itself (in brackets of course) look like: (p. class=subhead2) and it closes with the simple (/p) in brackets. MOST COMMANDS SHOULD BE CLOSED or they won't work. Not all, but most.

I am stuck using Microsoft's FrontPage in my job at the library, and FrontPage stinks. It's sloppy with the code and I always have to test my pages in Netscape to find and fix the bad code. IE forgives a lot of FrontPage's flaws (of course--they're both from MS). I usually work in the html view in frontpage because the WYSISYG view is where a lot of mistakes are made. I don't bother using FrontPage's browser. I have Dreamweaver installed in the computer and have to wade in and learn that one. I have been told by many web designers that it is far superior. Time, that's the challenge, enough time. . .

If you use FrontPage it sticks tables and lots of other stuff in div tags, which aren't always necessary. Div and Span are commands for putting in your own homemade tags, but aren't automatically necessary unless you've gone ahead and made those tags.

Having said all of this, I should add a couple of URL's for checking your work. Click Here for a code validator, a place that will examine your pages and report back where you need to fix the code to meet the international html standards.

If you do web pages that you think someone might visit with assistive reading devices (for visually-impaired users) you need an unadorned version of your page available. You can run it through the Bobby page (as in a British cop is a "Bobbie") to see if your page is understood by one of those reader programs.

If you pay any attention to any of this advice, the one that should stick is to go get the Castro book. There may be updates by now, but this one is still the bible for many web designers. If you're moving into dynamic html, Peachtree Press has a book on that also. My copy is at work or I'd give you the author. I haven't had time to explore all of the XML and other manifestations out there, but you can find books for all of that from this same press.

Something to declare:

America named after Welsh Customs man

AMERICA was named after a British Customs officer and not, as historians have long believed, the Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci, who participated in Christopher Columbus's voyages to the New World.

Martin Waidseemuller, whose 1507 map of the world was the first to show the so-called Unknown Territory as a separate continent, has long been credited with naming the new land after the Florentine nobleman. But according to a new book by Rodney Broome, Amerike, The Briton Who Gave America its Name, the country was named in 1496, years before Vespucci's voyage, by John Cabot, the Bristol-based explorer who stumbled on the continent while searching for trading opportunities.

'Cabot didn't know he had discovered a separate contnent during his earlier jour journey but he mapped the land he saw in detail and named it after the main sponsor of his trip, a Welsh aristocrat called Richard Amerike,' said Broome. Amerike or Ameryk-both Anglicised versions of Ap Maryke - was a wealthy landowner and merchant trader who lived with his wife, Lucy, and their two teenage daughters in Bristol's Clifton Manor.

He built a profitable career by trading with merchants in Spain and Portugal in the lat ter half of the fifteenth century. In 1486 he was made King's Customs' Officer and was encouraged by the King to send his ships on journeys of discovery. When Cabot was given per mission by Henry VII in 1496 to challenge Columbus the race to discover a trading route through the mysterious land mass that barred Europe's route to valuable trading opportunities in Asia, America was in the perfect position to help, says Broome.

According to papers Broome discovered in Westminster Abbey's archives, Vespucci and Columbus used Cabot's maps secretly. 'As their fame grew and Cabot's declined, the misconception grew that it was they who had named the new land,' he said.

OK, so I did a blue clicky, but the words which I wanted to turn blue and clicky disappeared into space, and the whole following sentence turned blue and clicky instead.

The advice on the FAQ file is just too succinct for someone not used to html.

Could I suggest that someone writes out a more step-by-step guide based on an example, and asks Joe to substitute it for what's on the FAQ at present, please?

What I have is something along the following lines:

Suppose you want to turn the words "blue clickies" into a link to the HTML Test Thread.

1. Anyone wanting to practise blue

Type the sentence which includes the words

In the meantime I'll keep trying.

What I have is something along the following lines:

EXAMPLE

Suppose you want to turn the words "blue clickies" into a link to the HTML Test Thread.

1. Type the sentence containing the relevant words, e.g

Anyone wanting to practise blue clickies can use the practice thread set up for this purpose.

2. [At] the phrase "blue clickies" insert the following: [and this is where I need the help of someone who is clickie-literate to give the correct instructions. Just which bits of the instruction in the FAQ should be put exactly where?]

3. Open a separate navigator window... and copy from the address bar the URL to which you want to set up the link.

4. Return to your draft posting and paste in the URL [wherever is appropriate, to be described in unambiguous terms which even an ignoramus like me can't misunderstand]

5. The sentence should now appear as follows [whoever picks up the idea, please correct]:

Anyone wanting to practise Click here can use the practice thread set up for this purpose.

6. Finish typing your posting and submit it. When posted it will appear as a html link or "blue clicky".

An Pluiméir Ceolmhar, your first aatempt was fine, apart from the fact that you missed the /a at the end of the link. If you want the words Photo of ICB workshop to appear, you have to put them in the place of click here. Try again?

blink and marquee are not HTML.
blink is an invention of Netscape and will only work in Netscape browsers (probably not in the new 6.x Netscapes).

marquee is an invention of Microsoft and will only work in Microsoft browsers.

Both are extremely annoying.

Deadhorse (or should I say Captain Ahab?), use this:

for links within mudcat:
<a href="/urlonmudcat">clickable text</a>
and replace the red parts.

for links to the outside world (if it really exists):
<a href="http://www.outsideworld.com">clickable text</a>
The bold part is important for outside links!

Dead Horse:

Let's see how bad I can mess this up.

You wrote:

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org">thread.cfm?threadid=40461</a>

and then:

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org">thread.cfm?threadid=4078035</a>

Either of the above will take you to the mudcat homepage - not to the particular thread.

The "thread.cfm?threadid=#####" is part of the address that the tag "points to," so the whole thing needs to go in the opening tag - between the first "<a href=" and the first ">":

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=4078035>

The stuff that comes after the first > is the "display" to give people a place to click. It is a fine idea to repeat the critical part of the address, so you might use:

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=4078035">thread.cfm?threadid=4078035</a>

Or you can put anything else (preferably descriptive) there:

<a href="http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=4078035">Answers to the world, its meaning, and eventual value to humanity</a>

Which would display as

Answers to the world, its meaning, and eventual value to humanity

It the "target" is on mudcat, you can shorten it to:

<a href=/thread.cfm?threadid=4078035">thread.cfm?threadid=4078035</a>

Since anyone who can click it is already connected to one of the mudcat servers, you only have to tell them where on their server to find it.

If the target is "offsite,' you need the whole thing.

John

MudGuard -

Right on about the """"". That's the main problem with using the quotes - I seem to be inclined to leave the closing quote off. In this case, I think I copied and thought I'd picked up both quotes - and didn't pruff reed.

The consensus opinion at Mudcat is that you probably shouldn't use them at either end, but I have seen a few sites that balk if they're not there. Maybe if I'd get my head made up about how I really want to do it, I wouldn't make so many mistakes.

Ok, so I am out of consense here.

HTML says they are necessary when certain characters appear in the attribute value, they have to be quoted.
And if in doubt, I stick to the rules...

Here is what the HTML standard says:

By default, SGML requires that all attribute values be delimited using either double quotation marks (ASCII decimal 34) or single quotation marks (ASCII decimal 39). Single quote marks can be included within the attribute value when the value is delimited by double quote marks, and vice versa. Authors may also use numeric character references to represent double quotes (&#34;) and single quotes (&#39;). For double quotes authors can also use the character entity reference &quot;.

How come it works without the quotes? At least here - which is the only place I am familiar with.

because browsers don't stick to the standards (the this nonsense with blink/marquee and other such stuff).
