Image Formats

GIF or JPG?  A good rule of thumb is to use GIF files for "type" and "drawings" and JPG files for "photos."  PNG files are gaining popularity, but are not supported by some browsers.  CLICK HERE for a nice explanation.  Always re-size graphics to the size they will appear on your web page (before you upload them!).

Inline Frames (iFrames)

Inline Frames (IFrames) are windows cut into your web page that allow your visitors to view another page on your site or off your site without reloading the entire page.  Here is an example of the "Google" home page cut into this web page...

Code: <iframe src="" frameborder="1" height="150" scrolling="yes" width="575"></iframe>

HTML Codes

HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is the written "code" of web pages.  HTML codes appear in the form of "tags" and are surrounded by angle brackets (< and >).

Web Safe Colors

Colors that look the same on any browser or computer are known as web safe colors. These color codes are used in HTML elements like background, text etc. They are a combination of hexadecimal digits (00, 33, 66, 99, CC, FF). While choosing colors for HTML layout, try to use one of the web safe hex color codes.
