HTML Sandbox
Refreshed 1 July 03 | Various FReepers

Posted on 07/01/2003 9:34:44 AM PDT by TPartyType


Welcome Newcomers!

This Sandbox is devoted to giving you a place to practice basic HTML, and to get some coaching.


So, first things first:

Go to michigander's [ HTML Bootcamp (Cyber patriot training)] and learn there how to change font color, font size, font face, and the like.
THERE'S A WEALTH OF INFORMATION THERE NOT COVERED HERE (so as to avoid duplication).
Learn there also how to post a link and an image, then come back here to practice.

If you're having problems, folks will drop by occasionally to give you pointers and help you troubleshoot.


Boring posts are a crime . . .

So practice here first!


NEWCOMERS TIP: I just reread the FreeRepublic posting guidelines. They're worth a read by all newcomers [click here].


Following is an excellent previous post by Willie Green

But first, HTML advice from the FreeRepublic help page:

Basic HTML
The Free Republic forum uses standard HTML coding techniques. Use <p> to start new paragraphs. You may use <b> to begin bolding and <center> to center text, but please remember to end these items where appropriate with </b> and/or </center>, etc. If you post links or other advanced coding, be sure to test before posting.

Creating new paragraphs is about the only html that most posters ever need, but if you would like to learn more about html you may use any search engine on the internet to find tutorials. Simply search on "html tutorial". Here are links to a couple tutorials that I found:

The Basics

Paragraphs, Line Breaks and Horizontal Lines
A lengthy article or reply can be very tedious to read if it does not contain some very simple HTML formating. Inserting either of the following codes will make your post much more readable:


Character Formatting
Simple special effects may be created using Character Formatting Codes. These codes are used in pairs in the format: <?>words to be formatted</?>, where <?> turns the formatting "ON" and </?> turns the formating "OFF".

Please: ALWAYS turn "OFF" the formatting when you use it.

Some commonly used codes of this type are:

These codes can be "nested" to produce multiple effects at the same time. For instance:

<b><i>Bold and Italic</i></b> produces Bold and Italic


Links
The method for posting a HTML link is fairly simple. The following format is used:

<a HREF="URL">Link Description</a>

where "URL" is the URL address you want to link to (and you gotta use the double quotes), and Link Description is whatever you want to call your link. For example:

<a HREF="http://www.drudgereport.com/">Link to Drudge</a>

becomes Link to Drudge


And another from the same previous post:

<FONT COLOR="COLOR">Sample</FONT> produces colorful text.

"COLOR" is often a Hexidecimal Code for whatever Color you want, but color names are also supported.
Examples:

<FONT COLOR="blue">blue text</font> produces blue text

<FONT COLOR="red">red text</font> produces red text

<FONT COLOR="green">green text</font> produces green text


To: foolproof formatting

Here is an easy way to REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE FORMATTING.

To be sure I turn off the formatting I TYPE THE "OFF" COMMAND AT THE SAME TIME AS THE "ON" COMMAND.

An example:
I want to respond to a line in a post by another brilliant Freeper.
I type < I >""< /I >< BR>
I then "cut and paste" his remarks between the quotes:
< i>" You are a poopy head "< /I>< BR>
And type my equally brilliant response: "No, you're a poopy head!"
The result:

"You are a poopy head"
No, you're a poopy head!

It's very easy to forget to turn off your formatting!
Yes it is!


To: ftrader, deport

Actually, the <ul> tag is for a bulleted list and stands for unordered list. The missing part is the list item tag (<li>) Here's an example:

<ul>
<li>List item #1
<li>List item #2
<li>List item #3
</ul>

Would display:


Finally . . .

OPERATION: IRAQI FREEDOM
SADDAM CAUGHT!
Former Iraqi leader discovered hiding
at bottom of hole by home near Tikrit


Posted: December 14, 2003
9:05 a.m. Eastern


© 2003 WorldNetDaily.com

It took eight months.

When it finally came, it was a surprise.


Saddam Hussein in U.S. custody

But there was jubilation in Washington and Iraq today as word spread that a bearded and disoriented Saddam Hussein had been captured, uninjured, without a shot being fired, while hiding in an underground hideout on a farm in his hometown of Tikrit.

Both the U.S. and British government confirmed the capture, which came eight months after the fall of Baghdad.

The U.S. civil administrator in Iraq, Paul Bremer, told a press conference that Saddam was arrested at 8:30 p.m. Saturday. About 600 coalition troops joined the operation.

The U.S. forces also showed video of captured Saddam, who was wearing a beard and undergoing a medical examination. Saddam is ''in good health'' and without injuries, a U.S. spokesman told reporters.

The former Iraqi president had $750,000 in cash on him.

In Baghdad, Iraqis celebrated the capture of the former leader with gunfire. Continuous gunshots were heard over the neighborhoods as reports poured into the city early in the day that Saddam was caught in Tikrit, north of Baghdad.

Saddam's capture was first reported by Iran's official news agency IRNA, which quoted Iraqi Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani as saying that ''Saddam Hussein was arrested in his hometown of Tikrit.'' British Prime Minister Tony Blair confirmed the arrest with a public statement: ''I very much welcome the capture last night of Saddam Hussein. This is very good news for the people of Iraq. It removes the shadow that has been hanging over them for too long of the nightmare of a return to the Saddam regime. It also gives an opportunity for Saddam to be tried in Iraqi courts for his crimes against the Iraqi people. And it gives us an opportunity to take a step forward in Iraq.''

''Ladies and gentlemen, we got him,'' Bremer told a news conference. ''The tyrant is a prisoner.''

Saddam was captured in a specially prepared ''spider hole'' in the cellar in the town of Adwar, 10 miles from Tikrit, Lt Col. Ricardo Sanchez said. The hole was six to eight feet deep, camouflaged with bricks and dirt and supplied with an air vent to allow long periods inside.

In the capital, radio stations played celebratory music, residents fired small arms in the air and others drove through the streets, shouting, ''They got Saddam! They got Saddam!''

At the news conference announcing his capture, U.S. forces aired a video showing a bearded Saddam being examined by a doctor holding his mouth open with a tongue depressor, apparently to get a DNA sample. Saddam was shown touching his beard during the exam.

Then a video was shown of Saddam after he was shaved.

Iraqi journalists in the audience stood, pointed and shouted ''Death to Saddam!'' and ''Down with Saddam!''

''The captive has been talkative and is being cooperative,'' Sanchez said. Saddam was being held at an undisclosed location, and U.S. authorities have not yet determined whether to hand him over to the Iraqis for trial. Iraqi officials want him to stand trial before a war crimes tribunal created last week.

Ahmad Chalabi, a member of Iraq's Governing Council, said Saddam will be put on trial. ''Saddam will stand a public trial so that the Iraqi people will know his crimes,'' Chalabi told Al-Iraqiya, a Pentagon-funded TV station.

Forces from the 4th Infantry Division along with Special Forces captured Saddam, the U.S. military said. There were no shots fired or injuries in the raid, called ''Operation Red Dawn,'' said Sanchez.

In Tikrit, U.S. soldiers from the 4th Infantry Division, the unit that is responsible for security in Saddam's hometown, were smoking cigars after hearing the news of Saddam's capture.

After invading Iraq on March 20 and setting up their headquarters in Saddam's sprawling Republican Palace compound in Baghdad, U.S. troops launched a massive manhunt for the fugitive leader, placing a $25 million bounty on his head and sending thousands of soldiers to search for him.

Saddam's sons Qusai and Odai – each with a $15 million bounty on their heads – were killed July 22 in a four-hour gunbattle with U.S. troops in a hideout in the northern city of Mosul. The bounties were paid out to the man who owned the house where they were killed, residents said.

Against a background of celebratory gunshots fired in the air by jubilant Iraqis, an emotional and grateful Dr. Azzam Alwash -- a former Iraqi exile now back in Baghdad -- told Fox News: "Thank you to all the soldieres of the United States and the collation for making this possible."

Maj. Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of the 4th Infantry Division, told reporters in Tikrit that Saddam was captured based on information from a member of a family "close to him." "Finally we got the ultimate information from one of these individuals."

Although he was armed with a pistol, Saddam didn't fire his weapon. "There was no way he could fight back so he was just caught like a rat," Odierno said. He added, "The intimidation and fear this man generated for 30 years are gone … [but] our work here still continues."

Bush: 'USA will not relent'

"Now the former dictator of Iraq will face the justice he denied to millions," a solemn President Bush said at 12:15 p.m. Eastern, in his official reaction to Saddam's capture. "It marks the end of the road for him."

"For the vast majority of Iraqi cititzens," he said, "the torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever. … I have a message for the Iraqi people: You will not have to fear the rule of Saddam Hussein ever again."

Noting that he expects further terror attacks despite Saddam's capture, Bush added: "We've come to this moment through patience, and resolve and focused action. … Our security is preserved by our perseverance."

"The USA will not relent," he concluded, "until this war is won."

Yay ! See ? I told ya you could do it !

HTML is pretty flexible, actually. To a point, that it. You have to have the " quotemarks " for the URL (the 'www.whatever.com'), but not necessary to have quotemarks with the dimensionals (width and length). It is BEST to include BOTH length and width dimensionals, I am told, because the picture will load faster after you post it. This is especially helpful for those coming to the thread that have slow dialup connections. Also helpful for those with faster connections too, I think.

Keep on keepin' on with posting pics. The more you post them, the more comfortable you will become with it, and it will become easier for you. You will see ! ...

Ah ! I see ! Just a minor error. Notice your template address ?

< IMGscr="http://richard.meek.home.comcast.net/DogSmile.JPG"width="503"height="412">

Just a typo, Onyx ! Correct that (s/b IMG sRC, not 'sCR'), put a SPACE between the IMG and the SRC and you've GOT it ! ...

< IMG src="http://richard.meek.home.comcast.net/DogSmile.JPG"width="503"height="412">

The way I organize my images is using Microsoft Word. I keep all my images 'preloaded' there. That way, when I want to post Mr. Smilie Doggie there, it's simply a 'copy and paste' process from Word into the FR posting template here. Then preview and post it.

I also keep the 'blank graph template' on Word so when I find a NEW pic, all I have to do is copy the template and copy/paste the URL and key in the dimensions and it's ready to go ! Everybody has their own way of organizing their stuff. That's just how I do it.

Here is the 'blank posting template':

< IMG src="" width="" height="">

onyx, do you have your images on a 'host page'? The properties show 'not available'. They have to be on a Host page unless you use someone elses HTML for the image posting

I use Walagata and Village Photos, which are free and easy to use.

Meek, I am able to post all my gifs and jpgs from those sites using just this code; [img src="?"] No capitals and no size numbers! Just put < > where the [ ]'s are. The ONLY space is between img and src. Maybe other Host sites require the 'size' tags??

Well, yes ... you can post an image without the Width and Length dimensionals. However, by putting in BOTH, the image loads faster on the page I am told. If you've ever been on the USO thread (or any thread with lots of graphics) and see how slow a page loads with a lot of graphics on it you can understand why that's important, so I'm told. I'm not a technical type, but just passing along information I've been given by folks that are supposed to know these things.

I have a fast connection ISP (Comcast), so it's not much of an issue with me either way, hehe !
