Loading... Be Patient!
Use the HTML basic command guide below to customize the web pages, blogs, comments and email templates for more effective communication. PLEASE NOTE: Dashes have been inserted in front of the HTML close tag brack (>) and after the HTML open tage bracket (<), to disable HTML code from being followed by this web page. You must remove the dashes before and after the brackets (> and <) to use correct HTML code in the examples below.

Making text bold
To make text appear bold, use <-b-> and <-/b-> around the text. For example:

Make <-b->this bold<-/b->

will look like:

Make this bold

Making text italic
To make text appear italic, use <-i-> and <-/i-> around the text. For example:

Make <-i->this italic<-/i->

will look like:

Make this italic

Making text underlined

To make text appear underlined (without being an actual link), use <-u-> and <-/u-> around the text. For example:

Make <-u->this underlined<-/u->

will look like:

Make this underlined

Creating line breaks
There are two basic line breaks in HTML. Use <-br-> to break to the next line or <-p-> to skip a line. For example:
1<-br->2<-p->3
will look like:

1
2

3

Changing the size of text

To change the size of text, use <-font size="+1"-> to look bigger, or <-font size="-1"-> to look smaller. End with <-/font->. You can also change the number value if you want to. For example:

Make text <-font size="+2"->bigger<-/font-> or <-font size="-2"->smaller<-/font->

will look like:

Make text bigger or smaller

Changing the type of font
There are a few different fonts you can use, and the most common are:

Times New Roman: (this is the default for all browsers)

Arial or Helvetica: use <-font face="arial, helvetica"-> and <-/font->

Verdana: use <-font face="verdana"-> and <-/font->

Garamond: use <-font face="garamond"-> and <-/font->

For example:

Make <-font face="garamond"->this font garamond<-/font->

will look like:

this font garamond

Changing the font color
There are many different Web-safe colors that you can use in your template. View the HTML Color Codes Chart.

To make text appear in a certain color, use the color codes like this: <-font color="#FF0000"->. For example:

Make <-font color="#FF0000"->this font red<-/font->

will look like:

Make this font red

To set default font colors for the entire page, use color codes in the <-body-> command. For example, if you want:



font = black
link = blue
'visited' link = red
'while being clicked' link = pink

use:

<-body text="#000000" link="#FFFF00" vlink="#FF0000" alink="#FF00CC"->

Including a graphic
To include a graphic in your HTML template, use <-img src="URL"->. Be sure to include the entire URL of the graphic, starting with http://.

Including a link
To include a link in your HTML template, use <-a href="URL"-> and <-/a-> around the text of the link. Be sure to include the entire URL, starting with http://. For example:



Make <-a href="http://www.lyris.com"->this text link to www.lyris.com<-/a->

will look like:

Make this text link to www.lyris.com

Including a numbered or bulleted list

To include a list in your HTML template, use <-ol-> and <-/ol-> at the beginning and end of the list, and use <-li-> to create the individual lines. For example:


<-ol-> <-li->This is line one <-li->This is line two <-/ol->

will look like:

1. This is line one

2. This is line two

If you want to use a bulleted list instead of a numbered list, use <-ul-> and <-/ul-> instead of <-ol-> and <-/ol->.
For more assistance, please utilize the wide variety of HTML resources on the Web (or HTML books and manuals).
