Is it possible to make the HTML source not viewable?
In short, there is no real method or script for making
standard HTML source code not viewable. You may consider
doing any of the below if they are concerned about your
1. Create the web page in Macromedia Flash or a similar
program. The visitor would need to download the
Macromedia Flash plug-in and would be unable to view the
source code for the flash applet.
2. There are various scripts that will disable the right
click feature, preventing the user from saving images or
viewing the source. However, this will not protect the
source code of your page. For example, Internet Explorer
users may still click "View" and "Source" to view the
source code of the page, or a user could disable scripts
and images can be saved by simply saving the web page to
the hard drive.
3. There are several programs that will help scramble
your code, making it difficult (not impossible) to read.
Again, this is not going to prevent someone from viewing
Why doesn't my title show up when I click "check it
You're probably looking at the wrong part of the screen.
The Title usually shows up in the Title Bar on the
Window, to the left of the minimize/maximize buttons on
How do I make a thumbnail for my image(s)?
Thumbnails are very useful, but they take a little bit
of time to make. All you need is a graphics editing
program that has functions to resize an image (sometimes
it's under a function called image attributes). Be
advised--when you have made a thumbnail, you will need
to save it as something different than the original.
Also, you will generally want to link to the larger
graphic when you are done.
Here are the steps:
1. Load a copy of the image into your graphics editing
2. Determine the ratio the thumbnail to be. (Do you want
it to be half the size? One third of the size? One
quarter of the size? One tenth of the size?)
3. Find the resize (or change attributes) function of
your program. Most programs will recogize a percentage,
for example you can type in 25% for height and width if
you want the thumbnail to be a quarter of the size. (It
it doesn't do percentages, you can calculate it by
multiplying the pixels by the percentage. If you have a
graphic that is 400 by 100, and you want it 25% of the
size, multiple each measurement by .25. In this case,
you'll get 100 and 25.)
4. Once you are satisfied with the thumbnail, think of a
name for the image. Choose Save As and enter that name.
(Tip: I like to just add t after the image name. For
taco.jpg I'd use tacot.jpg)
5. Upload the image to your site, and edit your HTML to
load the new image name with the new, smaller size. If
you wish, you can link to the larger image around the
Example: You have taco.jpg which is 400 pixels wide and
100 pixels high. You made a thumbnail of it called
tacot.jpg, which is now 100 pixels wide and 25 pixels
high. After you have both images uploaded, here's the
<a href="taco.jpg"><img src="tacot.jpg" width=100
height=25 border=0 alt="click for larger taco"></a>
You'll find border=0 to be helpful in eliminating a
link-colored box around your thumbnail.
What is the difference between the HTML form methods GET
The method parameter specifies which method the client
is using to send information to the WEB server. The
method determines which parameter you will find the CGI
request data in:
* POST - post_args
* GET - httpargs
How do I rename all the files from .htm to .html after
copying them from a PC to a UNIX machine?
UNIX's mv (`move') command won't handle wildcard
filenames. However, there's a program called htmaddl
(for `HTM-add-"L"'), so you can login and type htmaddl.
This will rename all .htm files to .html
If you haven't got this program on your UNIX machine,
you can type it into a file called htmaddl:
for f in *.htm; do
base=`basename $f .htm`
mv $f $base.html
After saving it and exiting your editor, make it
executable by typing the command
chmod ugo+x htmaddl
Best of all, move it into your ~/bin directory, or ask
your WebMeister to put it in /usr/local/bin so everyone
can use it.
How do I put sounds for older versions of Internet
For older versions of Internet Explorer, this technique
was used <BG SOUND="sound.ext">.
Can I use any HTML in the box?
Yes. Any HTML tag that your browser supports will work
in the box. So you can carry tags from chapters to
chapters and mix and match...
How to transferring user to new web page automatically?
You will need to use the below meta tag.
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="2"; URL="http://www.yourname.com">
Placing the above tag in your <HEAD></HEAD> will load
yousite.com in 2 seconds.
Changing the 2 value on CONTENT="2" to another value
will increase or decrease the delay until loading the
I'm trying to `include' a HTML document in another
document...Is there a way to do this?
Yes, there are several ways to do this. But remember,
HTML is not a programming language - it doesn't have
`directives': it's a markup language, so trying to
compare it to C or Pascal is not going to be very
SGML already provides the standard way to do this, using
an entry in the DocType Declaration for a file:
<!doctype html public "-//IETF//DTD HTML 3.0//EN" [
<!entity foo system "bar.html">
and then later when you want to include the file
This is the General Entity mechanism used universally in
normal SGML work and does exactly what is wanted, with
the added benefit that you can have multiple occurrences
of &foo; if you need to include some text at more than
one place. Unfortunately none of the browsers except
Panorama support it, basically because very few of the
programmers who write browsers bothered to read up on
what can be done.
* The second way is to use the facilities of your
server. This has to be enabled by someone with access to
the server configuration files (ask your WebMeister).
For example, the NCSA server lets you embed a command
inside an SGML comment:
<!--#exec cmd="cat myfile.html"-->
Provided this occurs in a file with a special file type
(eg .shtml, and this is what has to be specified in the
server configuration), the server will parse the file
and send out the result of the command embedded in the
* There is in fact a vastly easier way to do this. SGML
provides a PI mechanism (Processing Instruction) in the
SGML/HTML couldn't care what you put inside (except it
must not, for obvious reasons, contain the `>'
character!). This would be a great way to specify a page
break, for example: suppose you were processing an SGML
file using PostScript, you could say <?showpage>...but
again, none of the browsers except Panorama support
this, again because they guys who write them have never
bothered to actually read up on how SGML works.
