HTML Stuff

Some CSS, HTML and D-HTML Tricks

The added HTML in green gives you an idea of how simple it is:

CSS attributes allow all sorts of fancy text manipulations. The few lines of html below will remove the underline and change the colour of the links on a page - just like I have done on this page!

The addition of a few lines inserted between the tags <head> ... </head> is all that is needed....

<title>uncletony's Web-Internet Stuff</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type=text/css>  
A { text-decoration: none } removes underlining
A:hover { color:#FF0000 } text changes colour when mouse hovers over an active text link


This snippet creates a scrolling banner like this:

... you too can put in a scrolling banner like this and annoy everybody !! ...

(Note - it only works with IE 4 and Netscape 7 or greater)

<div align="left">
sets left, right, or center alignment

<b><font color="#FF0000" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

sets typeface style and color
<marquee width="500" height="14"><font size="2">
... you too can put in a scrolling banner like this and annoy everybody !! ...</i>
sets marquee size and message
closing tags



This will give you coloured scroll-bars only with IE5.5 and above


opening tags


closing tags



This Javascript applet will give you scrolling text in the IE Status Bar.

Insert the GREEN highlighted text in between the <head> ... </head> tags.

var x = 0
var y = 0
var z = 150
var delay = 120
var text = "**** Welcome to uncletony's Web Site **** "
+' Please send me an e-mail to let me know what you think of it. '
while (y ++ < z) {
text = " " + text
function scroller() {
window.status = text.substring(x ++, text.length);
if (x== text.length) {
x = 0;
setTimeout("scroller()", delay);



var z :
sets scroll starting point
var delay: sets scroll speed
var text: text to be displayed

CSS doesn't work with of browsers earlier (older) than 4.x., and not all browsers recognise all HMTL commands
