HTML For WebTV E-Mail


To begin with, HTML (HyperText Mark-up Language) is the set of codes used to create the vast majority of pages seen on the World Wide Web. This versatile programming language allows the complete integration of pictures, sounds and text into a distinct whole.


HTML codes (generally referred to as "tags") are generated by using the carats on the keyboard to surround them and seperate them from the text. For instance:

<html> </plaintext></center><p>would be the first tag used in a text field, in order to signal to the browser that what follows is not just plain text.</blockquote><br><hr><blockquote>After the <plaintext><html></plaintext> tag, you would enter the codes for putting </font><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/on/r2s/color.html">color</a><font effect="shadow">,</font><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/on/r2s/images.html"> images</a><font effect="shadow">, and </font><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/on/r2s/sounds.html">sounds</a> <font effect="shadow">in.</blockquote><br><hr><blockquote>When ending the HTML page, always use this tag:<p><center> <plaintext></html></plaintext> </center><p>This tells the browser that the HTML file is complete. Many browsers automatically assume this tag, but some older versions can be confused if the closing tag is not included, and if neglected in a multi-part mail, the HTML coding may spill over to the other portions.</blockquote></font><br><hr><center><a href="/on/r2s/color.html"> Color</a> &nbsp &nbsp <a href="/on/r2s/images.html">Images</a> &nbsp &nbsp <a href="/on/r2s/sounds.html">Sounds</a></center><br><hr> </b><font color="#333333" size="1"> <p> <center><a href="mailto:roadtosurfdom@webtv.net"> Questions or comments?</a></center> </font> </body> </html>
