HTML Explained: Tips for Self-Starters

Written by Dina Giolitto, Wordfeeder.com

Continued from page 1

In most but not all cases, if you activate an HTML tag by enclosing it in these: < >s, you must also deactivate it at some point, as in < I > and < /I > for italics shown above. An exception to this rule is < P >, or paragraph separator tags, and < BR > or line breaks.

Specifying Multiple Text Characteristics Within a Single HTML Tag

HTML tags work in different ways, depending onrepparttar aspect ofrepparttar 137368 design they're controlling. As I mentioned above, you can control all elements of web design via HTML code—page separation, text formatting, image placement, design layout, and hyperlink insertion. For this reason, one HTML tag can include multiple variables. This sounds a lot trickier than it is.

For example, a tag with multiple variables enclosed all in one of these: < >, can be used to format text. An equals (=) sign is used to specify multiple characteristics within a single HTML tag. To tag a section of text for font specs, begin with:


Using no spaces afterrepparttar 137369 equals (=) sign, type your font name in quotes, as so: "arial". You can also specifyrepparttar 137370 size and color here. Inrepparttar 137371 same tag that says to close. Your font tag will now look like this:

< FONT FACE="arial" SIZE="2" > (but with no end spaces).

If you wanted to, you could also include a color forrepparttar 137372 text within that tag. The color is entered inrepparttar 137373 same way asrepparttar 137374 font face and size, and is named within its own set of quotation marks either in a basic name such as "black" or "red", or a 6-digit numerical code that begins with a number sign.

So, an HTML tag that designates a paragraph typed in Arial font atrepparttar 137375 2nd smallest size of type, inrepparttar 137376 color black, would look like this:

< FONT FACE="arial SIZE="2" COLOR="black" >

All ofrepparttar 137377 type that came after this HTML tag would take onrepparttar 137378 characteristics above. Once you wanted to "shut off"repparttar 137379 font characteristics of that blurb of text, you would typerepparttar 137380 tag < /FONT >.

Using HTML Tags to Add Images to Your Web Page

Now suppose you wanted to add an image to your webpage. And let's assumerepparttar 137381 image was already located inrepparttar 137382 folder of your website where images are stored. In order to makerepparttar 137383 image appear in your NEW web page, you need:

1.repparttar 137384 complete web address of your website (such as http://www.wordfeeder.com),

2.repparttar 137385 folder (or subdirectory) on your server where images are kept, and

3.repparttar 137386 file name ofrepparttar 137387 image (ends in .jpg).

The HTML code used to "pick up" an image from a source is IMG SRC. As always, it belongs inside those handy bracket-things. So your tag would begin:


Without typing any spaces before or afterrepparttar 137388 = (equals) sign, you'd then pasterepparttar 137389 URL of whererepparttar 137390 image is located (as explained in examples 1, 2 and 3 above), and follow withrepparttar 137391 filename and .jpg ending. I'll illustrate this with an example from my own web collection of images:

< IMG SRC="http://www.wordfeeder.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/wordfeederlogox.jpg" >

By typing that HTML tag withrepparttar 137392 specific web address and folder information/filename within quotation marks,repparttar 137393 computer knowsrepparttar 137394 origin ofrepparttar 137395 image, and will then "hyperlink it" into your web page.

If you're ever unsure ofrepparttar 137396 filepath of an image you need, go torepparttar 137397 webpage where it's located and then right-clickrepparttar 137398 image. Under "properties", you'll findrepparttar 137399 complete URL path that must be typed in betweenrepparttar 137400 two quotation marks that fall inside your Image Source tag.

Note: you do not need to "shut off" an image tag.

You can also include multiple variables within a single image tag. For example, if you wanted to left-alignrepparttar 137401 above image, you'd editrepparttar 137402 above tag to look like this:

< IMG SRC="http://www.wordfeeder.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/wordfeederlogox.jpg" ALIGN=left >

Hyperlink Tags for Email and Website Addresses

Ever wonder how webmasters create live links? A live link might say something like, "Click here for more info!" and then when you click there, you're suddenly transported to a new web page. A live link is simply type covering a website address. Check it out:

< A href="http://wordfeeder.com" rel="nofollow" >Visit Wordfeeder for more info!< /A >

That's HTML code for "hyperlinked text". It looks weird, but think about it this way. The first part in that's enclosed in these: < >, is what turns onrepparttar 137403 "makerepparttar 137404 following words into a link that leads torepparttar 137405 address I am typing here" function. The end tag, < /A > is what "shuts off"repparttar 137406 "hypertext linking" feature and will then let you resume typing in normal, unlinked text.

As you can see, by typing a few simple HTML tags, you can create some pretty amazing things. This article is justrepparttar 137407 tip ofrepparttar 137408 iceberg. I hope thatrepparttar 137409 explanations and examples shown have at least provided a basic understanding of HTML for you. A great way to learn is by "studying" other people's web page code fromrepparttar 137410 View>Source window. You practice by copying their HTML code into your own fake pages, and filling inrepparttar 137411 "meat" between their "on" and "off" tags with text and images that suit your own purposes. But be careful. If you paste HTML incorrectly, you can totally wreck and corrupt your document.

For folks who want to get into serious design, I highly recommend that you buy a comprehensive HTML guide. Once you getrepparttar 137412 hang of HTML, there's no telling what you can create!
