How to Add html to Your Blog

HTML is the code that works behind the scenes to make a lot of websites work.

I've put this page together so that students can copy and paste the code straight into their blog posts and not have to worry about coding. That way we can focus on Literacy skills.



It has a spell check built into the browser.
That's gotta save you some time.



How might the Google Pack tools be useful for you & your students?

To link from your blog to an outside webpage -

Page opens In the same window -

<a href ="insert the web address (URL) you want to go to here">insert click text here</a>

Page opens in a different window -

<a href="insert URL you want to go to here" target="_blank">insert click text here</a>

To bold some writing -

<B>Insert text here you want in bold</B>

To make some writing italics -


<I>Insert the text you want in Italics here</I>


To change the colour of your writing -


Red

<FONT COLOR="#FF0000">Insert the text you want this colour</FONT>
