BASIC HTML : TAGS AND TEXT


This is a prototype of a SIMPLE PAGE. It will Inform amaze or BORE you to death! Anyway, this stuff is not that difficult. It is ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE if you want to create a website!

To return to the main menu page go to denisbyrne.com homepage

The goal of this page is to show uses of these tags. To see what's under the hood here, (assuming you're using IE) right click on your mouse and look at the source code by selecting "view source". Copy what you like, modify it ,cut and paste to your page etc.



THE HTML 'SPLAINED FOR YOUR CONVIENENCE!


HTML is "HYPERTEXT MARKUP LANGUAGE"

these TAGS have starts < > and stops </ > :they are double ended and must be nested

HEADING size < H1 >

AND size < H2 >

THEN size < h3 >

AND size < h4 >

GETTING smaller size < h5 >
SMALLEST HEADING size < h6 >

example of the proper format is < h4 > YOUR HEADING HERE < /h4 >


the following TAGS are PHYSICAL, double ended and can be nested!!!

< i > ITALICS < /i >

< b > BOLD < /b >

< b > < i > BOLD AND ITALICS (NESTED) < /i > < /b >

< u > UNDERLINE < /u >

< s > STRIKEOUT < /s >

< tt > TT < /tt > (like CODE tag)

< big > BIG < /big >

< small > SMALL < /small >

< sub > SUB < /sub >

< sup > SUP < /sup >


these tags are LOGICAL, double ended and can be nested

< strong > STRONG < /strong >

< em > EMphasis < /em >

< cite > CITE < /cite >

< code > CODE < /code >

< kbd > KBD < /kbd >

< var > VAR < /var >


AND now for some single ended tags

< p > PARAGRAPH to start a new paragraph


< br > BREAK to create a blank line

< hr > HORIZONTAL LINE as seen below


AND NOW we will show how to display some special characters.(ASCII)

Most ascii characters can be displayed by typing the ampersand followed by an alphabetic command OR by its character number :example -&middot;- is the bullet or middot character. ( · )

  non-breaking space is called by &nbsp;

© copyright is called by &#169;
© copyright is called by &copy;

® registered is called by &#174;
® registered is called by &reg;

· middot is called by &middot;
· middot is called by &#183;

( I used the < P >tag to separate the catagories and the < br >tag to simply start a new line)


The align command may be used with headings or paragraphs and may be center, left or right . By the way this very line is being wordwrapped by the browser!!! EXAMPLES

< h3 align=center > YOUR WORDS < /h3 >

 THE < pre > tag means THIS TEXT IS PRE-FORMATTED AND SPACES      ARE KEPT.
WORDWRAPPING IS DISABLED WITHIN THE PRE TAGS </pre >
