Basic HTML How To

You can use basic HTML in many ways and in various places. You can change simple things by making your font bolder, bigger, or smaller by using the simplest of codes. You can create page breaks and separate your paragraphs or thoughts. Change the color of your font, create a text link, or place a picture or graphic image on your web site.
 
If you have not yet copied and pasted a graphic or background lay-out onto a web page or a social network site such as MySpace, give that a try. It will show you a great example of what an HTML code actually looks like. Study it for a few minutes to get a good look at the tweaks that could be made to any code to change just a bit of the end result.
 
We use HTML at social networks, on web pages, and in solo advertisements for business marketers.
Basic HTML will make your page or advertisements stand out from the crowd. Get noticed and learn a bit of HTML.
 
To change your font and make it show a bit of your personality or to make it jump out of the page, you will need these basic HTML codes. I will be putting spaces between the characters here to be able to post this on an area that uses HTML. When you type this, leave no spaces between the characters. Making your font bolder only requires you to type  < b >. Typing in multiple sets will create an even bolder font. At the end of the word or phrase you wish to be bold, type </ b >. This code will close the bold print.
 
You can make your font bigger or smaller as well by using the code < big > or < small > and then closing it off with </ big > or </ small >. That is the extent of it. It is really this easy to do.
 
If you need a separation between ideas, thoughts, or paragraphs then use the code < Br >. If you would like a double space between the text, type two or more in a row, all touching with no spaces. This is best used with graphic images and photos, or banners and music players. It prevents the images from running together and creates a much cleaner page view.
 
Another neat little trick is changing your font color. Red jumps right off the page, blue is a very mellow and calming color, and yellow when used with a combination of red and black makes a very bold statement. This code is very simple and looks like this, < fontcolor="thecolor" >. Now, with this code, you can either just type the color name into "the color" area or do a quick search for HTML font color codes and replace "the color" with the actual color code number given on the site you find. Close the color with </ fontcolor="thecolor" >.
 
How about adding a text link to your web site or social page? Again, simple once you see it a few times. This is what it looks like. You will need to replace the yoursitehere with your web page link and TextLink with whatever you want to show as your link text. 
 < A HREF="http://www.yoursitehere.com/">textlink&lt; /A >
Again, I have created spaces where there should be none to ensure readability. If I posted this on an HTML compatible page it would not show anything except the useable link called textlink.
 
There is an easy shortcut to image codes. Uploading a stored photo or image from your computer to a site called Tiny Pic will get you your image code straight away. Just copy and paste into your project. The easiest by far. The wealth of information on and about using, viewing, and learning the basic HTML code is a search engine away. My goal is to enlighten you and show you that you can do it too. That it isn't as difficult as we all may have thought it was and doing it correctly is within reach.

How To Copy And Paste

Stephanie Haile aka Wavecritter Hello The basic computer skill of Copy and Paste is a must know for blogs and social networks.

There are 2 ways to copy and paste. First way is to click your right mouse and hold it as you drag the cursor over the words or phrases you want to copy. Or, if you want to copy the entire page, then you can right click the mouse anywhere on the page and the drop down menu will appear. Click with the left mouse button while the cursor is over the words select all. This will highlight the whole page. Sometimes this will also include things that you do not want like the header of an email or other unwanted text, so be sure you look to see what got highlighted with this method.

How To Copy And Paste

There are 2 ways to copy and paste. First way is to click your right mouse and hold it as you drag the cursor over the words or phrases you want to copy. Or, if you want to copy the entire page, then you can right click the mouse anywhere on the page and the drop down menu will appear. Click with the left mouse button while the cursor is over the words select all. This will highlight the whole page. Sometimes this will also include things that you do not want like the header of an email or other unwanted text, so be sure you look to see what got highlighted with this method.
 
Practice with this page, I will space things so you can get the whole page by clicking the right mouse over what beginning letter you want to start with in the sentence and then holding it down as you drag the cursor over the length of the word.
 
It will turn blue as you drag the mouse. You can let go of the right mouse button after everything you want to copy is highlighted. Don' click the mouse again until the cursor is right on top of some of the highlighted things, then right click the mouse, a drop down menu is presented. Place your cursor arrow over the word copy and left click the word copy.
 
It is now in your mouse and ready to be pasted. While you are practicing, leave the page that you copied from open until you paste in case you need to start over.
 
Now go to the email or other page that you want to paste into. Place your cursor in the area you want to paste in, and right click your mouse, another drop down menu will appear. Place the arrow over the word paste and left click paste. Eureka! You have transferred a document, email, or other text or graphic from one place to another!
 
Second way to copy and paste is to highlight the area with your mouse, same as above, then while the highlight is still on, push the Ctrl (under the shift key) and the c key at the same time. This will copy. To paste, click your cursor so the typing line shows on the page you are pasting to, and push the Ctrl and the v key at the same time. The copied items should appear like magic.
 
Practice with this page if you want, I have spaced things so you can take a paragraph, a sentence or the whole thing.
 
This works with text. Graphics and photos are very similar. Use the right click method and the drop down menu will give you the option of save as, use this option. Make sure it is save "AS". Left click this and type a word or two so you can remember what the picture is, also make sure (the computer usually does this for you) it says that it is saving your photo or image to your pictures file. This is the easiest way to retrieve them later in a file that is easy to find.
