HTML Font Tips
It is very tempting to use fancy looking fonts when designing a web page. After all, the fancier the font the more attractive it will be to visitors and the more likely they will be to stay at your page once they've gotten there. Actually, the reverse is often true.Most people go to a web page because they are interested in the information that is there, either an article they want to read about something or maybe it's a product or service site that requires them to navigate through a number of pages to find the product or service that they are looking for. The last thing they want to do is have to battle with the font on the page because it is difficult to read.There are several things that make fonts easy or hard to read and each one is equally as important.Font s are made up of many properties but the most important of these are type, size and color.The type of font refers to how the font characters themselves are displayed. The most common fonts are Times New Roman and Ariel be...

In this article we're going to go over some HTML editors, some very popular and some not so popular.There are more editors made to create web pages than Carter has liver pills. If you're the typical non professional user then you are probably familiar with the more popular ones and have absolutely NO clue about some of the obscure ones that are available. We'll cover a few of each.Probably the most popular HTML editor is Microsoft's Front Page. The first version of Front Page came out in the mid 90's. If you're interested you can actually find an article online that talks about the first Front Page beta. You can find the article at http://www.byte.com/art/9607/sec13/art10. htm. The first Front Page had limited functionality and needed a server extension to work it. Today, Front Page has come a long way. It is one of the most powerful editors you can get and can do just about anything. It is also probably the one used by more people than any other.Of course users of Macromedia'...

HTML - Guidelines For Authoring
When designing your web site you want to make the visiting experience as enjoyable as possible and at the same time make it so that if the site needs to be changed in any way, the changes are not too difficult to make. You want the look to be as appealing as possible for all browsers and also make the site accessible to users with disabilities. In order to accomplish all this there are some general guidelines when creating your HTML code.1. The first thing that will really make your life easier is through the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS is used to maintain the look of the document such as the fonts, margins and color. HTML directly on the page is not a good choice to handle these aspects because if say, the font color you are using for certain paragraphs needs to be changed from blue to red, you would have to go in and change each color tag manually. By using CSS you can designate the color for each of those paragraphs just once in the CSS file. That way if you have to ...

Basic HTML Code For Your Blog
Hyper Text Markup Language - that's what it stands for. Its a way for Web browsers to present text and graphics. A code if you like. To get a better idea of what it is, click on your View menu and then Source or View Source and that will show you how a page of text is formatted in HTML (It'll also show you the keywords used in the Meta tags which can be helpful in getting your page ranked higher on Search Engines - but more on this later).Basic Knowledge of HTMLBefore we go any further let me tell you that I'm rather new to all this. I've only been into computers for the last couple of years. Oh sure I'd used computers in my work before that but only as far as word processing. I was using AppleIIs back in the early Eighties to write magazine stories but apart from knowing how to boot the machine up and format a word processing document I didn't have a clue about computers. And I still don't have much of a clue. I probably couldn't explain the difference between ROM and RAM t...

HTML And Why You Need It
HTML. What is it, and why do you need to know how to use it?First of all, HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language. It is what a browser reads in order to display what you actually see on a webpage that you view through Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, or whatever browser you may use. It's a type of code.Uh-oh, code. Yikes! Is it some sort of secret language? Not really. And it's much easier to learn than one might think.Why is it important to know how to use it? For many reasons. What I consider the most important reason is so that you can create your own web pages. There's a great deal of pleasure to be derived once you've finished a site and it looks good. There's even more to be gained when you put that site out there and it accomplishes what you want it to do, i.e., get you sales, signups, etc. Besides, if you know how to put together those web pages that you want, it can save you bundles of money. While it's easier having a professional design for you, if you're on a tight ...

Understanding HTML Color Codes
I help people with web pages a lot and I usually encourage them to edit the HTML directly and not rely on GUI layout programs like Microsoft FrontPage or Adobe GoLive to layout their pages. A lot of people have a trouble understanding what HTML Color Codes mean and how they work.HTML Color Codes are 6 characters wide and look like "#80FF12", and are really 3 2-digit hex numbers that represent Red, Green, and Blue. Ok... I just lost a good portion of the crowd didn't I? Let's break it down into things that are easy to understand.How to describe a color using numbers? There are a lot of ways to specify a particular color, but one of the ways that's used with computers is to specify the values of Red, Green, and Blue to mix together to achieve the desired color. As we vary the amounts of Red, Green, and Blue we can create most any color you desire.How does this relate to computers? Computer displays, TVs, and other "projected light" display devices use pixels to display what you see...

HTML - Do We Need To Learn It?
In this article I am going to answer the question as to whether or not we need to learn HTML. This rather long answer will surprise you, but hopefully by the article's end you will understand why. See, this isn't an easy question to answer and there are many points of view.First of all, HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a sort of programming language that allows us to view web pages on the Internet. Without HTML everything we read would be simple plain text and very dull to look at. HTML opened up a new world when it was created, one that we sometimes take for granted, not just in the viewing of content online, but in the creation of that content itself.In the early days of HTML, if you wanted to design a web page, you were pretty much limited to notepad and your imagination. There were no HTML editors. You went to school, learned the language and then plodded your way through coding it. It was tedious to say the least and not many were really good at it.The first ...

HTML - Image File Management Tips
HTML graphics. It's a real balancing act that isn't always easy to pull off. Let's face it. Web pages that are all text are simply boring to look at. It's like reading the obituaries in the newspaper. So graphics really come in handy when trying to spruce up your site a bit. The problem is that graphics, or more specially graphic files, can be very large and take lots of time to load up on a page. If you have too many graphics or if the graphics you have chosen are large, the visitor may lose patience waiting for the page to load. The end result is that you've lost your audience anyway because they have moved on. So how do you strike a balance between a dull looking web page and one that takes forever to load? We'll go over a few things you can do about this problem in this article.The first, and easiest thing to do is to simply not use too many graphics files on your site. Sometimes it only takes one or two carefully placed graphics files on a page to capture a visitors atten...

Can You Build Your Internet Business With No HTML?
HTML is the acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. For learning purposes, just think of it as a language that the computer understands. For example, as humans, we were taught different languages; i.e. HTML as a language, is mostly and specifically used to create a website. The web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, will then decipher and interpret the code or rather, language(HTML), and display it in a way we can understand it, just like in a basic webpage.Knowing basic HTML is good but if you do not know HTML, that is not the end of the world! You can always take HTML courses or search for information online. I started out on the web with zero HTML knowledge but I learn the basic and I build websites. Now, I still am no expert but I am still building websites.Go to Google or Yahoo right now and type in "Basic HTML". You can find many websites providing information on basic HTML.

Web Page Design - How HTML Stands for Results
Web pages use HTML to display information over the Internet, using a browser (i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer). According to dictionary.com, one definition for design is: to intend for a definite purpose. This implies that a designer should have forethought when constructing a web page design such that there is a definite purpose for each page. Of course the web site owner will want their site to be popular, and business web sites desire traffic to achieve a return on investment (R.O.I.) and traffic is the key. It is the search engine that returns the results page for a search. The keywords used help the search engines determine relevancy of the search to the web page.The search engines (i.e. Google, Yahoo!, MSN) are not human, but are programs written by humans and cannot actually "see" the images or "read" the text on the web page. It is important to impart to them well researched information that will lead the search engine to your web page and return your web page link to the se...

You do this by browsing around their profile pages, leaving comments, sending messages or bulletins, adding 'friends' and generally just having a typical web 2.0 chit-chatty good time.A 'MySpace layout' is a block of CSS code that can be used to modify the background, fonts, table borders and other aspects of your MySpace profile page.

HTML Forms - Plain English Explanation Part I
In this article on HTML we're going to discuss HTML forms, why they're important and how to use them effectively in plain English so everyone can understand their use.One of the most important things about any web site that you'll put together is to be able to collect information from your visitors, either for the purpose of sending them news of your products or services in future emails, or for the direct purpose of processing orders, in which case you would need things like name and address for shipping purposes. In order to gather this information HTML makes use of forms.A form in HTML is pretty similar to a form that one would see in the offline world, such as when you're filling out an application for employment or a loan. On these forms you would most likely include your name, social security number, address and a variety of information depending on what the form itself is used for. With HTML, which is what makes up a web page, the form is not written in but typed in by th...
