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 . . .

Here's the link for [Webmonkey] (a super HTML training site).

After Life by Michael Brown, What happens when we die? How are we judged? What's it like in Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory? Revelations, near-death accounts, and a reawakening to what life means! A hopeful book, a serious book, one that you and loved ones won't forget as you take a look at the final destination: eternity. There is nothing more crucial than where we go after life and that's what this highly popular book is about: the process of death and how instead of the "end," it is an opening to a new and vast, never-ending reality.

OKAY OF EMBRYONIC CELL RESEARCH WILL INTRODUCE HIDDEN DANGER THAT WAS PROPHESIED AS 'COMPARABLE' TO ABORTION

The astonishing election of Barack Obama to the presidency was a great moment and also a tragic one.

It was a great moment for human equality: during endless decades, blacks have felt like strangers in their own land -- not truly bona fide citizens. One can only imagine how it feels not to be fully at home in the nation of one's birth. When Afro-Americans look to Washington, they will now see one of their own, as Catholics did in 1960 with Kennedy. To view their joy election night was unforgettable. 

That was the great aspect of it. Racism -- prejudice -- is evil. Everyone should cheer at the advancements of African-Americans, and celebrate their equality. That was truly joyous. Who could not savor that aspect?

The tragedy is that the first Afro-American president -- this man of undeniable intelligence, likeability, and skill, who caused a historic moment -- is so radically "pro-choice" and in fact is now ready to take us to a new level of danger.

The danger is not only his tremendously strong support for abortion (which includes partial-birth), but also human-embryonic stem cell research, which causes the destruction of human life at its earliest stage -- just after conception (just like abortion) -- and occurs when cells are cultured and manipulated for medical use, leaving the nascent human, conceived outside the womb, in a lab dish, at a fertility clinic, to die at the age of four or five days.

In most cases this is done by the simple in vitro fertilization of an egg with sperm, but such embryos can also be multiplied through cloning.

Sources indicate that President-elect Obama will move to initiate and expand such research immediately upon entering the Oval Office, through an executive order.

Make no mistake. This is a spiritual crisis. For those who believe that life begins at conception (and despite a woeful lack of attention to the issue by pro-lifers during the election), human embryonic destruction is comparable to any other form of abortion.

And as with abortion, it will lead to future tragedy.

The research will almost certainly be approved and funded by the Democratically-controlled Congress, where House leader Nancy Pelosi has long expressed urgent support for it, as has Senator John McCain, and as has Senator Hillary Clinton -- whose pro-choice position is as radical as Obama's (though she has escaped the vitriol directed at him).

It is a truly "stealth" danger. Once approved, the number of human embryos could skyrocket. At least 400,000 have been frozen already in the U.S., although just a small percentage -- 11,000 -- have thus far been designated for research (according to one recent assessment). The question is whether unfettered research will cause a multiplication to the point of approaching or exceeding the 1.2 million unborn terminated each year in the U.S. through regular abortions.

The embryos are usually "extra" ones created when a couple has sought help from a fertility clinic, but they can also be cloned -- greatly increasing the number.

Stem cells form various organs, chemicals, and tissues that can then be manipulated to develop in a way that yields substances which may help alleviate or even cure a number of serious ailments or even grow new organs. Diseases that might be treated by transplanting cells generated from human embryonic stem cells include Parkinson's, diabetes, traumatic spinal cord injury, Purkinje cell degeneration, Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, heart disease, and vision and hearing loss.

The problem: embryos die in the process of that freezing, thawing, and of course drawing forth of stem cells.

Scientists refer to it as a "hollow microscopic ball of cells" called the ; it should be called a child, known by God.

To make matters more unpalatable, the inner surface of the culture dish is typically coated with mouse embryonic skin cells that have been treated so they will not divide. This coating layer of cells is called a . The reason for having the mouse cells in the bottom of the culture dish is to give the inner cell mass cells a sticky surface to which they can attach. Thus, human and rodent cells are grown side by side, interacting.

Embryos may become corporate property. "We will have an entire class of human beings that are corporate property, governed only by corporate contract law," notes viewer Margaret Schaut, who follows such matters from Michigan. "The uses? A farm for replacement organs. Testing 'material' for chemicals, cosmetics, drugs. Testing for effects of the new high-tech weapons on 'human tissue.' Chimeric (part human, part animal) research and development. Cyborgs -- research and development of electronics integrated with the human body."

In and of itself, human cloning is a ghastly sin -- never mind its coupling with embryonic destruction.

With it we reach the point where we create humans so we can destroy them and harvest their remains. It is subtle and microscopic and out of view: but did they do anything worse in Nazi Germany?

Have politicians meditated on this? Has Obama (and  not just him)? How can men who seem to be of good will -- and high intelligence -- support such things?

Whether or not it ever approaches the number for abortion, the technology of cloning and stem cells brings to mind what we have called the 1990 prophecy -- in startling fashion. In fact, a mystery of that prophecy might now be solved.

That alleged message -- granted to an anonymous recipient on December 3, 1990 -- warned of "a new evil the likes of which mankind has never before encountered.

"It will arrive almost imperceptibly," said the missive, "with few people noticing the depth of its evil, for it will appear to have beneficial and convenient aspects. It is an evil comparable to abortion -- that is to say, that even if evils as great and widespread as abortion were to be eliminated, this is enough of an evil that it would present mankind with an enormous challenge."

Is that new evil embryonic manipulation? "Comparable" to abortion -- and yet not abortion per se -- could be seen as indicating something such as embryonic research (as well as other forms of genetic manipulation, with "beneficial" relating to medical promises). Breakthroughs and funding for cloning technology took place precisely four years after the prediction -- in 1994.

"This evil is being allowed as a test because of the prayers inspired by Mary to put off chastisements," claimed the prophecy. "How mankind responds to this new evil will determine the extent, length, and severity of the first chastisements. These chastisements will differ according to regions, and like the great evil, will not always or usually be immediately noticeable for what they are."

A follow-up prophecy to the same person 14 years later included the words: "The smallest of what lives is precious in My sight."

Are we thus poised to enter a more intense period of events?

Where is the outrage?

How many realize the result if President-elect Obama blindly signs such an executive order? The prayer here, as the Pope suggested, is for the new president's enlightenment. Something is coming. It will be here soon. By 2010 there will be intensification.

Few recall a major article  in The New York Times a few years ago on a decision by President George Bush to ban government funding of embryonic destruction but to allow limited private research into this realm -- opening the door for such research (and tempting scientists to barge through, which they now threaten to do if the president and Congress do what it appears they probably will).

"Scientists Urge Bigger Supply Of Stem Cells," said this particular article, at the top of the Times' front page. "Report Backs Cloning to Create New Lines."

That was the headline. And the date?

September 11, 2001.

test...A pictureDespite the radicalism of early Protestantism toward many ancient Catholic "distinctives," such as the Communion of the Saints, Penance, Purgatory, Infused Justification, the Papacy, the priesthood, sacramental marriage, etc., it may surprise many to discover that Martin Luther was rather conservative in some of his doctrinal views, such as on baptismal regeneration, the Eucharist, and particularly the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Luther indeed was quite devoted to Our Lady, and retained most of the traditional Marian doctrines which were held then and now by the Catholic Church. This is often not well-documented in Protestant biographies of Luther and histories of the 16th century, yet it is undeniably true. It seems to be a natural human tendency for latter-day followers to project back onto the founder of a movement their own prevailing viewpoints.

Since Lutheranism today does not possess a very robust Mariology, it is usually assumed that Luther himself had similar opinions. We shall see, upon consulting the primary sources (i.e., Luther's own writings), that the historical facts are very different. We shall consider, in turn, Luther's position on the various aspects of Marian doctrine.
