HTML Help Page

I frequently help people with HTML and webpage building in the GeoCities Help Chat room. I've noticed there are a few questions which are constantly asked by most people seeking help. I am offering this area as a resource for those people. Though a lot of the information is specific to GeoCities webpages, the general HTML is applicable to any webpage.

In places where the HTML tags are available they can be copied & pasted directly into an HTML document and you substitute the information specific to your webpages or filenames. To COPY use the KEYBOARD command CTRL+C and to PASTE use CTRL+V.

The following areas are currently included here in a lengthy listing. If you want, you can click the Quick Help locator for a briefer view :
