I took a class

Edited only in Notepad.

I took a class in the basics of HTML. I thought that it would be an interesting tidbit from my history to include nearly all of the code I did in class. All code was written by hand. (No automatic formatting in these pages!)

So then, combined into this one page here are those pages I did in class, here divided into sections. Please note that the graphics have been changed to ones which I legally may use (to keep things as legal as possible), and also that all the text we used in class is probably copyrighted by someone as well. Please, therefore, do not copy it. Thank you.

If you want to view the actual HTML code, in Internet Explorer do View, Source. (I don't know how to do it in other browsers.)

Sections (links within this page):

  1. One of the fancier pages I made that day:
    "Who We Are"
  2. Another of the fancier pages:
    "MainLine Movies & Memorabilia, Inc." This shows, among other things, how to insert graphics and combined lists.
  3. Other pages:
    "Graphics and Lists." This just lists types of lists and hyperlinks.
  4. One of the first pages we Copy/Pasted/formatted:
    Headers and normal body text, plus a link to a nearly identical page.

One of the fancier pages I made that day:

Who We Are

MainLine Movies & Memorabilia is a mail order video and movie poster company that specializes in videos, movie posters, and publicity pictures of movies made between 1930 to 1970. We also sell goodies like posters, old radio shows, scripts, calendars, glossies, film books, and autographs relating to the same 1930 to 1970 period.

Based out of the warehouse district in Sacramento, we own no stores and have been doing business with eager film enthusiasts strictly by mail since 1984. This allows us to give our customers impressive discounts over any retail location.

We have over 40,000 titles in our database. If your movie is not in stock, we can special order it for you. If you're looking for a hard-to-find video, we can find it for you.

Principle 1

"We believe in doing what is right for each and every customer" Our sales and customer service staff are trained to be competent as well as courteous.

Principle 2

"We offer the best quality products of any online store on the Web" We work closely with manufacturers to help improve their product whenever posssible, to reduce their price.

Principle 3

"90% of in-stock items are shipped within 24 hours" This allows us to have your order enroute within one working day of receiving your order.

Principle 4

"Satisfaction Guaranteed" Everything you buy from us comes with a return privilege. You'll be 100% satisfied or we'll make it right - with a refund, credit, exchange or replacement.

One of the first pages we Copy/Pasted/formatted:

Header H6 looks like this. I am allowed 6 different types of headers from H1 to H6.
Header H5 looks like this.

Header H4 looks like this.

Header H3 looks like this.

Header H2 looks like this.

Header H1 looks like this.

This is normal Body text.

HR does a hard return and adds a line on screen as above this sentence.
BR does a hard return--single spaced--with no line on screen.

P does a paragraph break--a double spaced break. (There is a P above this sentence and another one below.)

The Source Code for this page contains Tabs. As you can see, however, using Tabs in the code does nothing to the actual display on the web page.

Link to a page that looks almost the same as the Headers above.
Don't bother clicking on it.
