It was my original intention to create a Home Page dedicated to HTML coding tips, but I found so many excellent sites already designed {almost} the way I would have done it that I decided just to create links to these GREAT sites.

Here is a FREE IMPORTANT tip.

A troubleshooting tip from the Wizard!

If your page did work and then it quit after you added or edited lines, add an exclamation point { ! } at the beginning of any tags you suspect causing the error. Use 2 dashes to limit {parameters} of what you do not want browsers to read. Use Trial and error is the best teacher. The ! means the line is a comment or documentation line. This is also a good way to see what some tags do { or don't do }.

Example: Changing the tag line from

<img src="line30p.gif" width="596" height="2" border="0">

to

<!-- img src="line30p.gif" width="596" height="2" border="0" --> would cause that tag line to no longer be considered as part of the page. {grins}

Another very common error: Did you close all Anchor tags on new links and did you remember the closing " quotation marks? Either of these two oversights can do really weird things including making a major portion of your page disappear!
