Hour 17. Editing HTML

The easiest and most reliable way to create a Web page is to use a WYSIWYG editor—that's why I gave you Composer on the CD-ROM with this book, and that's why you've spent 16 hours with it.

No matter which editor Web authors use, they often reach a point where they want to do something that's perfectly possible in an HTML Web page but for which their WYSIWYG authoring program offers no buttons or menu items. If you reach that point, you might want to move beyond Composer into the realm of the HTML source file itself.

This hour introduces you to HTML source files and how new tags and attributes are applied. At the end of the hour, you'll be able to answer the following questions:

  • How can I read and understand an HTML source file?

  • How do I insert HTML codes from within Composer?

  • What other tools can I use to edit HTML source code?

  • How can I use HTML techniques to add three cool items to my Web pages: inline video, background sounds, and scrolling marquees?
