Web Page with a good listing of html tags?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Scott Dunaway, Oct 12, 2004.

  1. I loaned my html book to a relative and it's going to be a while
    before I'm able to get it back. I couldn't remember off the top of my
    head how to keep my background image from tiling so I looked at my
    favorites for stored pages and realized I only have a couple decent
    places for tags, which didn't help me much anyway. I'm googling and
    will likely find it, but, I thought I'd post here and see if some of
    the more knowledgable People wouldn't mind shaing a few URL's to very
    useful sites for such htm needs. I tried looking through my 32k+ posts
    but either my search terms weren't quite right or their hasn't been
    such a question asked so I hope I'm not asking for Anyone to repeat
    themselves. One site I have is

    http://www.htmlhelp.com/reference/wilbur/list.html

    which has been helpful for quick look up's. Thanks for taking the time
    to read my post and thanks again for any responses.... errrr...
    Helpful responses anyway. ;)

    W3C (www.w3.org) have lists of all the HTML you will ever need. What
    you're after is actually CSS though (which you can also find on their site);

    style="background: url(mypicture.gif) no-repeat;"

    Damn you type fast :)

    Out of all those really good url, w3schools.com is the one I'd
    recommend... I still use that site a lot for quick reminders. Plus W3C
    for definative stuff.

    Sorry, I'll rephrase that.

    <rephrase>
    brucie cheats. He uses a neural uplink to talk to his news server, thus
    avoiding any dealings with such mundane things as keyboards.

    Now that brucie has his brand new possum adorned satellite dish he can think
    Real Damn Fast at his news server, giving us mere mortals the illusion of
    total omnipotence.

    Some say the Wired doesn't have political borders like the real world,
    but there are far too many nonsense-spouting anarchists or idiots who
    think that pranks are a revolution.

    keyboards are for sissies and the pointing device challenged.

    its very concerning, i don't want the poor little guys to get cooked
    like the last family did when my house burn down. :(

    > he can think Real Damn Fast at his news server,


    its really tempting to upgrade so i can think even damn faster at it.

    Yes, he should have used:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function myInstill () {
    document.instillEmotion(new Awe ());
    }
    window.onload = myInstill;
    </script>

    as soon as you posted the URL i added it to the list. perhaps if you
    check in the *css* links under "css checkers" you'll find it.

    its ok, i'm just a little shocked that you think i would just ignore the
    efforts you went to to supply a permanent URL and forget all about it.

    Well, you did one of your disappearing acts shortly afterwards, so I
    thought you might have forgotten about it.

    Maybe later honey.
