HTML Tips for Newbies

 As much as you may want to avoid learning html there is some html code you will need to understand if you want your site looking perfect.

Many of the HTML commands outlined here are not the only commands used to perform these actions. This is just a basic tutorial, if you are interested in learning more or different methods, I recommend HTML Tutorial


The first thing to understand is that anything computerized will continue doing what it is told until it is told to stop.

Many commands have a stop or end command.

i.e. <b>Is the command for Bold Type the type continues to be bold until the </b>end command is used. You get the same result using<strong> strong </strong>

Text HTML

Headline  <h1>headline 1</h1>, <h2>Headline 2</h2>
Paragraph   <p> New Paragraph</p>
Line Break  <br>there is no end tag, as the action is to start a new line
Center  <center>These tags will center anything on the page
center</center>
Underline   <u>Underline</u>
Italic   <i>Italic<i>or <em>Italic</em>
Color 

<font color="#0000ff">Color</font>

Size  <font size="14">Size</font>
Align Right  <font align="right">  Align Right </font>

Size & Color 

<font size="10" color="#0000ff">Size and Color</font>

Colors are defined by hexadecimal codes. I suggest you download & install "colorpic" Its a fantastic free tool you can choose a color or pick one straight off the screen. For true color Hex codes you can use a colour chart

Alt Text

This may be lhe last part about images but for SEO purposes it is the most important.

Alt text is the text that appears when you mouse over an image or if the image does not display the alt text will display in its place.
Adding an alt tag is similar to the other commands we have been adding.
