All text types can be ended with a tag identical to the beginning one, except with a front slash before it, as with the (/title) for example to end the title bar entry. There are some exceptions to this, and they will be noted below.

Body of the html begins with a (body) tag and heading tags for bold-type (h1) headings with size 1 being largest and 6 being smallest. This type is done as H1, which is pretty large.

Horizontal ruled lines:

no closing needed for this tag (hr), with several possible attributes:
for fixed pixel width use (hr width=50):

for percentage of the screen width (hr width=50%):

to make the line a certain thickness (hr size=7):

to turn the shading off, making a 'solid' looking line (hr noshade):

plain (hr) makes the line full screen width:
or use several attributes within one tag, with a space between them, such as (hr width=50% size=10 noshade), which was used to make this line:


Use the p tag at the beginning and the end p tag at the end to make spaces between paragraphs.

Formatting Text
this tag (b) is for bold text
this tag (i) is for italic text
this tag (u) is for underlined text
this tag (tt) is for typewriter (fixed width characters)text
font size is regulated by positive and negative numbers and can be ended simply by using an end font tag. This font size is +3.
Align Text

To align text, the align tag can be placed within other tags, such as the heading tag, for example:

Left align a heading (h1 align=left)and then end with the typical (/h1)

Center a heading (h1 align=center), with the same ending tag

Right align a heading (h1 align=right), same end tag again

Line Break

Line break causes a break in the continuation of text, such as here(br)
where the tag will send the text to the next line, as if you had typed enter
in a word processor to proceed to the next line,
without a space between the lines. This tag has no closing tag.

Preformatting text

In order to get text to remain in a pre determined format or style, use the (pre) tag and it will stay as you typed it. (Note that if the browser window is too small, items typed in this format may be cut out of view. They will not reorganize themselves to appear on the page like plain text.) End with (/pre).

use (pre)
		and type it like this****, 
			and it will stay this way on screen*****!!(/pre)
Adding Links in text

To add a link that will take you to another web page, use the (a href=tag), such as (href="http:///www.websiteurl") with the appropriate web site url listed where I wrote website url in the sample. Use just the (/a) symbol to end the link. Here, I've given a link to's home page as an example. Note that the link color is different and the text of the link becomes colorized. Make sure that you use quotes in the tag to identify the url, or it won't work correctly.

A similar tag can be used to send mail to a person via a clickable link. For example:
To send email to myself via this link, I used a tag that is virtually the same, with the location in quotes being the email address:
(a href="")
If the user's email program is open, clicking this link should open a new message with the email address already in the "to" line. If the email program is not open, clicking the link will open it first, then begin a new message.
