It's sort of like the BB code that you use in the fourm but instead of using brackets you use greater than and less than symbols. I can give you a rundown of a few basic ones, but you'll have to pick up a book or find a good on-line site to get really good at it.


Making a link
<A href="http://www.mysite.com">Click here to go to mysite</A>

The "A" is an anchor and the "href" is one of many possible attributes to the anchor.; Notice how we finished with a "</A>" this is the end of the anchor. Everything in between is a link. It could be text or an image.



Images

More later...

Ill send you to the same sites that I learned HTML form:

HTML Goodies
W3C HTML/XHTML
Intro to HTML (mind you, its a little outdated, but its good for the basics)

And dbates...your image code is wrong...its:


< img src="http://www.mysite.com/background.gif">


But of course this board makes it hard to post HTML. So there is no space in the first img tag.

You're right, I forgot to put in the "src = " . I could have sworn I did when I posted it. Just because I have my own website doesn't mean I know what I'm doing.
I just do this in my spare time. My real job is C++.


EDIT: "src" keeps disappearing.
When I quoted you I noticed it was gone.

Croat, that is a flash movie, what I sent you was for a WMV specific movie. When I get home from school Ill have to give you the code for a flash file, if nobody has yet.

I cant post the code directly cuz it screws up..or uplaod a txt file to my server...so ill upload it when I get home.

Okay...give this a shot now.

This is the basic structure of an HTML template (w/o any CSS or other languages)

**Note do not include any spaces within the Tags**



< HTML>

< HEAD>
< /HEAD>

< BODY>
< /BODY>

< /HTML>


Try this one:



< HTML>
< HEAD>
< TITLE> Hello World < /TITLE>
< /HEAD>

< BODY BG COLOR="black">

< CENTER>
< FONT COLOR="red"> Hello World! < /FONT>
< /CENTER>

< /BODY>
< /HTML>

Throw that in notepad and save as "helloworld.html" (include the "")
Double click that *.html file and it should open it up in a browser and display "Hello World!" in red text.

I can reccomend HTML, XHTML & CSS if you really want to learn the ins and outs of HTML.

I think the 6th edition of this book is out now.
