I have received some e-mails regarding my offer to help those who
wanted to create their own Web page or had questions about Web design.
I certainly don't have all of the answers I could probably point you
in the right direction to finding the answers you need.

I wanted to make sure that anyone who was interested would have some
information.  Here's a site I created for my ISP on Web design -
http://www.scican.net/html/  It's a place to start.

I really appreciate how wonderful all of you have been in answering my
questions.  Thank you.

Victoria "Lee",
Wow, how nice of you.  I for one have book-marker your site on Web
design.  I now have all the equipment (a scanner & digital camera) &
being on cable they give me a free web page if I want.  All I have to
do now, is learn how to put up a page and get gutsy enough to show my
attempts at playing with the clay.  I'm having fun making wall switch
plates for a design studio.  If any sell, I'll know they are maybe
liked by someone.  Does this sound like a lack of confidence?  OK, so
there's nowhere to go but up, huh?  Any, just wanted to say thanks for
posting such info.

WOW!  This is great!  I took a quick look but it looks very comprehensive and
easy to understand.  Thanks so much for alerting us to your page at this site.

who WILL someday have a web page . . . hopefully sooner rather than later . . .

You CAN do this!

Most Web documents are nothing more than a text file saved with an htm
or html extension.  Such as clay.html

Lesson 1:

Open WordPad and type:

<html>
<head></head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Now save this in a location ***you can find again*** as lesson.html.

You're on your way :)

Next post we'll add more to it and this time next week you'll have a
page ready for the Web.

Okay. . . done, and waiting for the next lesson (took me awhile to find
"WordPad" though! --it was listed under Accessories in my system).

 When you said "save it somewhere you can find it," you meant anywhere, right?
(I created a folder under C, under aadiane, and called it Web Page.)  That
okay?

Lesson 2 -
1.  Add a title for your page - <title></title>  Type the text between
<title> and </title> that you want others to see in the title bar of
their browser AND it's also the name of the bookmark when people
bookmark your page.
2.  Between <body> and </body> write the text for your page
3.  To make a paragraph indention use 5 &nbsp;
4.  To make a new paragraph with no line between paragraphs use <br>
5.  To make a new paragraph with a line between paragraphs use <p>
6.  To center text on a page use <center> your text </center>

Here's what mine looks like:

<html>
<head>
<title>Polymer Clay Page</title>
</head>
<body>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;This page is dedicated to the wonderful
sites I've found
on Polymer Clay and the artists whose creations have captured my
imagination.&nbsp; Until recently I didn't even know this medium
existed as an art form, but now I'm hooked.<br>
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I hope you will enjoy these sites as
much as I have.&nbsp; Who knows maybe soon you'll be hooked, too.
<p>
<center>I will be listing the site and what I liked most about
it.</center>
</body>
</html>

And you can find it online here -
http://www.scican.net/~haxton/lessons/lesson2.htm

Glossary -
<html></html> - starts and ends page
<head></head> - must be at the beginning of your page
<body></body> - the majority of your document is between these two
tags
<title></title> - Type the text you want others to see in the title
bar of their browser AND it's also the name of the bookmark when
people bookmark your page.

&nbsp; - This equals one space - just like you pressed your space bar.

<br> line break - it makes a new line

<p> paragraph break - skips a line and then makes a new line

<center></center> Centers text on the page

HOW TO VIEW YOUR PAGE -
Open up your browser and click on "file" up at the top left of your
screen
Click "open" and browse to the location of your file and you can open
your file in your browser.  Then when you make a change in your
WordPad save and then click "refresh" or "reload" on your browser and
you'll see the new changes.

All lessons will be posted at http://www.scican.net/~haxton/lessons/

Diane, that's fine.  Just so you can find it again.

Today let's add a title to the top of our page.  There are many
options you can pick.

If you want to make your title bold use <b>Your Title</b>
If you want to make your title larger you can use <big>Your
Title</big>
If you want to make your title smaller you can use <small>Your
Title</small>
If you want your title to be in italics use <i>Your Title</i>

Now we need to make a line across the page to break up the sections.  
All it takes is this <hr> The hr means horizontal rule.

Now you need to add some links to your page:

Here's the basics of links:

<a href="What you want linked">Name of link</a>

To link my HTML site:

<a href="http://scican.net/html">HTML Site</a>

To add an e-mail link:


And a link to this newsgroup:


That's all today :)

Hmmm.  When I try to open that file, the address shows up in the address
box, but then I get a dialog box that says "Internet Explorer cannot open
this file."  Doesn't say why not, of course.

In case I left a step out I'll go through it again.

Open "file," click "open," click "browse," find the directory you put
the file in, find the file, click on file to highlight it, click
"open," and click "ok."  At that point you should have your file open
in IE.
