Tutorials and Testing
- When choosing where to put text, You will often want to choose a spot within the box at the center
of the page:
- The very bottom box is for the footer, and whatever you put there will appear on every page.
- The second box from the bottom appears to be a "bottom of page" box, and it sometimes forces you to take
colors or text sizes you might not want.
- The Top box (the one this is in) is for headings.
Of course, even with MSN-TV,
you can easily change the font size and color to whatever you want, but it takes a little more effort, so you will
want to wait till you have learned the font tag.
Below is Tutorial 1:
All of the stuff that goes between the center tags
Most tags come in pairs. There is a beginning tag and an ending one, for instance this is in italics Note that
the ending tag has a slash. The two tags are always the same, except that the ending one starts with a slash, and the beginning
one does not.
Here is a handy tag, the center tag:
will come out in the center of the user's page.
we computer people (yes you are one now)
refer to the person who will use a program as the User.
And web designers
will often use the same word
for those who view their work on the web
Below is Tutorial 2:
Here is some text in bold that is followed by some text in italics. The things enclosed in the pointy brackets
can only be seen inside the edit html window. They are tags, they tell the computer when to begin bold and when to end it,
or when to begin italics and when to end it. Almost all tags must have a beginning and an ending or else funny things can
happen. One tag that does not need an ending is the
tag that breaks the line. I just used two of them to give me a
nice skip to the next line.
Notice, also that Interland puts a div tag at the beginning and end of these little blocks
that you enter. Dont mess with those, just leave them there.
now press the hide html button and you will be able to
see how it will look.
Below is Tutorial 3:
First, notice that when you look inside the edit-html window, you can see I have lots of nice line breaks and spaces
inside of this, but once you put it on the web, no one will see them. Web browsers ignore any line breaks I type here and
only pays attention to the break tag:
And they ignore any spaces between words more than one: There are ten spaces between
the last two words, but only one show.
The tag below creates a horizontal line:
The next tag is called an anchor and it creates a link: Click Here For Pleasure
However you should also try the button at the bottom of the page, third from the left which is called add a link.
If MSN tv lets you use this, then it will be easier. However, the links it creates are always on a line by themselves, links
using the anchor tag above, can be placed inside text.
