Cool HTML codes

Does anyone know of a site that offers some html codes that are pretty cool? I have my own little site to do whatever with, but I want something more interesting than some of the dull things others use.

Well, as far as plain HTML goes, there really isn't anything that's all that cool about it. All you can really do is organize stuff, put images and text, and occaisionally change colors of parts of the page.

Most likely the stuff you're seeing on the web that's catching your eye is either Flash or Javascript. Maybe an occaisional Java applet or something, but those are getting fewer and further between. Also, you can get some really killer stuff going on with Cascading Style Sheets--CSS--if you know what you're doing.

A decent site to check out for Javascript, CSS, and basic HTML is They have a decent code library; go to the authoring section on their site. is a decent all-around reference, and if you're wanting a more technical approach, there's, the guys who keep track of all the different standards. There's also and (note the plural in the second one.) is another decent one.

If you're wanting to do Flash stuff for your sites, you'll need to buy the Flash program by Macromedia. I think there's a couple of small, freeware programs here and there that'll let you do small things, like buttons and menus, but if you're wanting anything that's really neat, you need to get the latest version from Macromedia. would be a good place to check out some examples of what you can do with Flash.

Of course, you can still do a really attractive, catchy site with plain ol' HTML; it's just a matter of knowing what you want and knowing how to do it. The webmonkey link above is a really good site to start with for a reference. Another invaluable method of learning is finding a site that has something you like, then click on the View menu button, then click on Source. The vast majority of the time it'll show you all the HTML and stuff for the page. A few people have figured out ways around this, but that's by no means common.

Good luck
Hope I helped some.

Well, I have 2 things:

1. Tables!!! Example: (everything except the asterisk*)

TR=Table Row TD=Table Data

You can put as many TRs or TDs as you like in 1 table.

2. Marquees!!!

This makes your words roll across the screen. Give it a try!

Just a quick note about the marquee tag; last I checked, that was only available in Internet Explorer and ignored in the others. It's generally best to make sure everything you want your site to do works in all browsers, especially now that browsers like FireFox are becoming more popular.

Not true. It works on IE and Firefox too! I'm not sure about Netscape though.
