Introduction

One quick trip around the Internet will tell you that web pages come in many styles and variations. Not only will you encounter a wide variety of designs and layouts, but the text will also be displayed in a number of different fonts and colors. Although the look of the text can be changed on a paragraph-by-paragraph basis, web pages also have certain characteristics that affect the entire page. These characteristics are referred to as page properties and include elements such as the page title and the color of the page background.

In this chapter, we'll take a look at how page properties are defined in Contribute. In addition to learning how to set the page title—a small, but important task—you'll see how to specify a background image, background color, and page margins. Part of the overall design of a page—particularly if a background color other than white is used—is picking colors for links; failing to do this might result in the links not standing out as they should. If you're posting pages to the web, make sure you read the final section on adding keywords and a description to your page; these elements are essential for helping search engines locate and index your page correctly, which will help anyone looking for information on your topic to find your page.
