HTML Basics - Making Your Portals Effective

HTML           Basics
          (
Web           site configuration cheat sheet for those that do not know HTML)

The Hudson web reservation           system is designed to be completely user configurable. This means           that you can fine tune the copy, almost anywhere on your site,           just by making changes in the editable fields located in CUSTOM           CONFIGURATION and other sections accessed           by your Web Utility.

Although HTML knowledge is not required           to make simple changes, a greater range and control over your           copy is possible if you know some of the HTML fundamentals.

Tag Basics
          HTML uses tags to communicate to the browser how to display text           and images. Tags are contained in < > symbols. In most cases           you start with the beginning, or opening tag, put in the word           or words that will be affected by this tag, and at the end of           the string of word(s), you place a closing tag. A closing tag           is typically identical to the opening tag with the addition of           a forward slant. Always use the closing tag so that you do not           adversely effect other copy on your page.

 



Example:            

<center>This             is <b>an</b> example.</center>
            The above line would display as follows:

This           is an example.


The tags             <center> and </center> force the copy between the             tags to be centered. The <b> and </b> causes the             copy between the tags to be bold.

Colors
          A note about HTML colors.           Colors are identified by a six character code. An HTML color finder           is built into your web utility. You will find the COLOR FINDER           and COLOR WHEEL in your CUSTOM CONFIGURATION 2, which is in your           WEB UTILITY. Look for it near the top of the page.


To view             the COLOR FINDER, click             here.

Common           Tags
          Here are some useful tags which are commonly used in configuring           a web site:


<b>             makes copy bold </b>

<i>             makes copy italic </i>

<u>             makes copy underlined </u>

<center>             centers copy </center>

<font             size=4> changes font size </font>

<font             color=#FF0000> changes font color             </font>

<font             face=Veranda> changes             type style </font>

<font             face=Impact size=1 color=#FF0000> changes             size, color and style</font>

<br> will create a line break             (this tag is unique as there is no closing tag)

<br><br> two line breaks             = skip a line

<p> will create a paragraph             </p>

Linking with HTML
         
Here is some sample code that is a link to another web page.           You can build
links to pages           where you have additional information. The following code links           to the web address http://www.thehudsongroup.com/howto/html2.htm.           As you can see, very little code, in addition to the target address,           is required.
         

          <a href="http://www.thehudsongroup.com/howto/html2.htm">This           is a sample link.</a>

         

The above HTML code would look like           the following on a page:
         
          This is a sample link.
