Postby Shooter61 » Sat Nov 04, 2006 11:21 am

I currently have links in my site and the coding looks like this.....




That takes me away from the site in a new window. But the problem is that I don't know how to code in what font and text size I want. Where would I add that into the code?
Thanks,
Ryan

I'd do that using a CSS script...Google that.

Basically, you define parameters for your ALINK, VLINK and LINK stuff in a seperate text file, and you call that up in your HTML text...

That's what I would do too, but I think in this case, it would be less confusing to use the font tag.

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_font.asp

You can place it after the opening a tag and before the closing /a tag.

But if you want to learn CSS (which is the ideal way to do formatting), here is a good link.

Thanks for the link all I needed was the tag cause I'm building my site in Publisher (crappy choice) and I have links along the way that I like to have open in a new window but I don't like how the font stands out.

Scratch that..... I just tried it out and still got nothing. Here is the code I came up with <font size="1" font face="comicsansms"><A HREF="http://www.scubatoo.net/bbqslideshowhtml/index.html" TARGET="_blank">Scuba Too BBQ 2006</font></A><small> but it won't change the face to comic sans.

That's because it is "comic sans ms", not "comicsansms" ]http://www.scubatoo.net/bbqslideshowhtml/index.html[/URL]" target="_blank">Scuba Too BBQ 2006</a></font>

Also note how I rearranged the tags so that they are properly nested, and lower cased the a tag. Just formatting things so that the browsers that have standards are happy with your code.
