A note on atricles and HTML
« on: August 14, 2003, 03:24:57 AM »
Ok people maybe it's not apperent to most but the forum tags and HTML tags are not the same.  HTML uses <> for brackets not [].  There have been a few off these poping up in the past few weeks.  I allwayse try to check them before they get posted but I'm working full time now so I don't have as much time to catch everything before it gets posted.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Or, just do what I do.  Write your article exactly how you want it to appear, then go to Microsoft Word and save it as an html document.  

Lazy?  Yes.  Why else would I hang out at this website?

The only problem with that is that Word likes to Jam up HTML. Such as taking a heading and making it an image. With a text based thing like this it doesn't really matter,  but the "save as HTML" function really irritates me.

Mozilla composer is very good. I use it.

amazingly, WordPerfect's "save as HTML" is quite good, better than Word's. THere are any number of freeware WYSIWYG html editors out there though. and Word appears to be working just fine for EUOL's purposes. My only advice is, if you're hand coding, MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE THE TAGS!

YES!! Forgetting to close tags looks really stupid. And makes me laugh at you.
