Make your own free website on Tripod.com
HTML
As soon as you have a web page, you need to put something on it, ne? This page will help you with with basics, and the more complicated things.

The Basics
<html> </html> These commands go at the beginning and end of your HTML document, respectively. They tell the computer it's an HTML document and to read the commands accordingly. Most servers will automatically add these lines; however, it's always good to be sure.

<br> Page break. This puts a blank line between lines of text. For example, if you type Hello!<br>How are you? It looks like this:

Hello!
How are you?

<p> Paragraph. This puts two blank lines between lines of text. For example, if you type Hello!<p>How are you? It looks like this:

Hello!

How are you?

<body bgcolor="#..." background="..." text="#..." link="#..." vlink="#..."> This defines the colors of a document. You can take out as many parts of this line as you want.
bgcolor=background color
background=a background image
text=the text color
link=the link color
vlink=the visited link color
Try this site to find colors to replace the ... in the code. Alternatively, you could change "#..." to "..." for basic colors, like "black" or "white."
This page is <body bgcolor="white" text="black" link="gray" vlink="gray>

<img src="..."> An image. For example, <img src="http://members.tripod.com/~animegraphics/FushigiYuugi/tasuki.jpg> will give you

<a href="..."> </a> A link. Text goes between the two commands. For example, <a href="http://members.tripod.com/~mariko_chan/">Mariko-chan's Page</a> will give you:
Mariko-chan's Page

This should get you started; later I will add sections on lists, tables, image maps, and some other things.
