HELP Return to Editor

To use this editor for the first time, try the following steps:

  1. Type a title in the space provided. This title will be displayed at the top of the window, and it will also be added as a size 3 heading in the file itself. You can delete it from the file if you like.
  2. Push the button labeled bare bones. This button creates a bare bones Web page.
  3. Edit the page by typing HTML into the body of the HTML document, in the window.
  4. At any time after the bare bones page has been created, you can push the display button to view how the HTML page appears in the browser. When this button is pushed, a new window is opened that displays the file. You should close this window when editing, or you will end up with many new windows.
  5. When you are happy with your HTML document, click the save button. This does not actually save the file, but it does select the document and remind you to copy the HTML to a text editor (NOT word processor) to save it with an extension of .htm or .html. For example, save it as MyFile.htm. Popular text editors include NotePad for the PC and SimpleText for the Mac.
  6. If you want to erase everything to start over, you can select the contents of the window and delete it, or you can push the reset button, which erases everything from the window.
