In Response To: HTML guide (*Ar-Isildur of *WP*)
Have you ever wondered how a forum poster can use those other, crazier fonts? Well, look no further. If you wish to use the adrenaline-filled System font, for example...
No one believes you, KORHAL.
Here, simply use the "font face" tag. I typed this exactly:
<font face="System">No one believes you, KORHAL.</font>
An easier way to adjust the font size is to use "headings":
There will be no Halo 1.5.
The exact font code was this:
<h2>There will be no Halo 1.5.</h2>.
You can use h1 through h6; h1 is the largest heading, while h6 is tiny.
In addition to links leading to websites, you can also link to email addresses; one quick click and the user will be able to type out an email to you. Whether that's good or bad is your call, but here is one.
Here, I simply typed out this:
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">Mail *Ar-Isildur of *WP*</a>.
If you wish to make an image link to another page, simply combine the image and link thusly:
I simply typed this:
<a href="http://halo.bungie.org/faq/"><img src="http://carnage.bungie.org/haloforum/images/faqbutton2.gif"></a>
If you want to get rid of that annoying border around the image, so it looks
<a href="http://halo.bungie.org/faq/"><img border="0" src="http://carnage.bungie.org/haloforum/images/faqbutton2.gif"></a>
Throughout this post, I have been using horizontal ruled lines to separate
topics. If you want to use one of these, simply type in <hr>.
There are many more things you can do with HTML. It is a very easy
language to learn, and a simple search for "html tutorial" or suchlike will help you.
Note: some of the HTML tags may look funny because they have word wrapped to a new line.
