    Looks good. The only obvious mistake lies in your lists. For each item in a list, make sure you start it with a <li> and end with </li> after the item.

    The best way to see, if everything is right, is to run your html document in the browser. First, manually change the text document into an html document by inserting ".html" after the name of text document. Finally, go File>Open in your browser and open your newly created html document. Now see if everything looks right in current work now shown in the browser and edit anything that needs to back in your html document. After making any new changes in your HTML document, press refresh in your browser to see your current work.

    I'm sure you know that by your current knowledge, but it doesn't hurt to ask for help. :cool:

    hi

    thanks for your reply

    I do have one question now I have a lot of different formatting going on and I was wondering if there is an easer way to go about this maybe using an internal style sheet for instance to dictate the format for the whole document rather than having to format every line individually insert individual tags for headings or notes or what have you

    now iv been doing a lil reading about style sheets but I'm having trouble getting my head round it and am not entirely sure how exactly I'd go about setting this up

    hi

    that's one of the sights that I been reading and its quite helpful but in this particular case I've not found it to be as useful

    perhaps if I explain in more detail what it is I'm trying to achieve you or someone else would be able to help me further

    ok now in this particular document I have a lot of different sections

    The 3 main sections are formatted like this

    <center><p><br><b><i><u><font size="5">. . . </font></u></i></b></p><br></center>

    then each of the sub sections are formatted like this

    <p><br><center>
    ##########################################################
    <br><b>. . . </b><br>
    ##########################################################
    </p></center>

    I also have several places where iv added notes and warnings that are in different colours like this

    <p><span style="COLOR: green">Note: . . . </span></p>

    or

    <p><span style="COLOR: red">Warning: . . . </span></p>

    and there are several sections where I'm quoting for other pages that are formatted like this

    <p><table align="center" border="1" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="95%"><tbody><tr><td>. . . </td></tr></tbody></table></p>

    now what id like to know is can I create a style sheet that will automatically format

    all the main section subsection notes and quotes as formatted above with out the need to format each section individually

    hi all

    in respect to my last question I've worked out how to do most of what I wanted here is what i have

    but there is on bit that is still giving me a real headache and that is this

    <table align="center" border="1" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="95%"><tbody><tr><td>. . . </td></tr></tbody></table>

    I cant seem to work out how to translate this to the code used in a style sheet help
