For the following instructions I've used [ ] to show where the html tags should be. Be sure to replace them with the proper symbols.
That's all there is too it! :-)
Click on the 'Save' or 'OK' button.
So you want to use my images, but you don't know how to use them without linking to them. There is a way you can put graphics on your site without linking to mine. Just go HERE and follow the instructions on their FAQ.
AOL'S default for saving graphics is not the .gif or .jpg that you saved, but a recompressed image with an .art extension. It looks great with an AOL browser, but the only people who will see your image is other AOL users. Fortunately, there is a solution. First, go to the 'Preferences' of the AOL web browser and turn OFF the option that says "Use Compressed Graphics". Second, under the advanced options, you must clear or purge your brower's cache and reload the current web page. This will allow you to receive all future images in the format that you downloaded. Unfortunately, you'll have to reload all the images that were saved in the .art format.
There are several ways to do this, but the method below works on all browsers (I think).
[TABLE BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH="100%" ]
[TD][IMG SRC="spacer.gif" HEIGHT=10 WIDTH=85][/TD]
This one is pretty simple. Just add a background color to your body tag, even though you are using a background image. Normally you would choose a color close to the color of the image you are using, but experiment a bit for different effects. For example, the body tag for this page reads:
[ BODY TEXT="#0080FF" BGCOLOR="#000066" LINK="#FFFF00" VLINK="#FFCC00" ALINK="#FFCCCC" BACKGROUND="tn_bg.gif"]Don't forget to change the brackets to the real html ones.
There are lots of font archives on the net. Below are some of my favorites.
