TIPS AND TRICKS


1.--Webtv corner image background tutorial

2.--How to make a slide show

3.--Indenting: There are several ways to do it. If you just want to indent the first line of a paragraph five spaces the easiest way is to hold the "Alt" key down and hit the space bar five times and start typing. However many times you hit the space bar is the number of spaces it will indent.

(script language="JavaScript"> JavaScript Error! Reload Page!< -->

5.--Re: How to make a border fit a picture? You could use a background for a border like this:

(table background="http://www.angelfire.com/nc/altonone/images /pin3.gif" cellpadding="25">
(img src="http://url of pic.jpg" width=229 height=295>


6.--(html) (body background="http://members.tripod.com/gifs123/backs 1/starb.gif"text="white"> (embed src="http://members.tripod.com/~midees/FILM/?.mi d"autostart="true"loop="true"

7.--The next script does nothing if your page loads correctly, but if the Javascript is not enable will produce an alert to the viewer to reload

<center><b> <font color="a10000" size="4" effect="shadow"> <script> <!--// Brought to you By Prototype-1 x='-';if ( navigator.appCodeName == 'bowser' ) { document.write('\<'+'!'+x+x);} //--> </script> <limittext width="400" value="Alert !!! JS Failure ( Reload Page ) "> <--></b></center></font><br><br> </center>

8.--You add the logo atribute to the body tag: (body background="http://URL" bgcolor="???" text="???" link="???" vlink="???" logo="http://URL of image to be used as logo">

9.-- JS Alert:

<center> <font color="#ff0099" size="7"><b> <script> <!-- // Thank You Prototype-1 for this bug script x='-'; if ( navigator.appCodeName == 'bowser' ) { document.write('\<'+'!'+x+x);} //--> </script> <limittext width="550" value="J.S.BUG! RELOAD PAGE"> </center>

10.-ALT IMAGE Tags I havent heard that about search engines, though for those that dont use meta tags to index your work, but rather text, title, and html instead, then this would make a small amount of sense. The Alt attribute is primarily for people who use a text only browser. For instance, below I could add an alt attribute to the image describing it...

<IMG SRC="http://webtv4you.com/images/4youspinning.gif" ALT="Spinning WebTV4You Graphic"> If you have sponsors, you usually see something like this... <A HREF="http://www.valueclick.com/?????"> <IMG SRC="http://www.valueclick.com/?????" HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=468 ALT="Please Visit Our Sponsors"></A> In a text only browser, the alt attribute is displayed on the screen instead of the image.

13.-autostart="faster? Yes it does.I use it.You can use "fast" or "faster". I read a warning somewhere that you should never use "fastest".It definitely speeds   up load time if you are using several images and you use it on each.

14. for an embeded sig. use:

<html> <body bgcolor="USE THE SAME COLOR YOU USED ON THE HTML PAGE" text="SAME COLOR AS HTML PAGE"> <embed src="http://URL_OF_SIG.html> </body> </html>

<!---> The Comment Tag: <!-- comment text --> The comment tag includes the actual comment text. Any instance of --> ends the comment. Whitespace may be included between the -- and the > but not between the <! and the first --. <&lt> The Escape Sequences: &lt, &gt, &amp, &quot, &nbsp, &reg, &copy, &ensp, &emsp, &endash, &emdash These escape sequences are used to enter characters such as <, >, &, and " into HTML documents. The mnemonics of the original four sequences from HTML 2.0 stand for Less Than, Greater Than, AMPersand, and double QUOTe. HTML 3.2 adds NonBreaking SPace, REGistered trademark and COPYright. HTML 3.0 adds EN SPace, EM SPace, EN DASH, and EM DASH. There are a number of escape sequences available for accented characters; a full list is provided by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C.) Use a space or semi-colon(;) after the mnemonic to indicate the end of the escape sequence; using a space will insert a space between the special character and the next part of the text, while using a semi-colon will not. Example: &lt;BR> will display as <BR> <NOFRAMES> The No Frames Tag: <NOFRAMES> alternate HTML </NOFRAMES> The NOFRAMES tag specifies HTML that can be used by browsers that do not support frames. Everything between the start and end tag is ignored by browsers that understand frames. colored border around an image. <table bgcolor="blue" border="5"> <tr><td align="center"> <img src= "http://the url for an image here"> </tr></td></table> A webtv only trick, it's called "animate on select" and that the code too !! See a sample of this by placing the cursor over The Thinker image below. Here is the code. <img src= "http://url of animated image" animateonselect> Here is a javascript code (web pages only) that will display text in the status bar when a link is mouseovered. <a href="index.html"onMouseover= "window.status='Click To Draac.Com'; return true" onMouseout="window.status='';return true">Draac.Com</a>
