thanks in advance,

oner's got it

 

Yeah, you need to create and define a style sheet for that page to use.

Within the style sheet you tell it to have no underlines.

 

fuck a book, use the help files.

hmm.. ive tried the style sheet thing, but only for the effected text and it still had the underline. is there somewhere to tell it specifically to NOT have an underline, cus i didnt see that, just left the underline option unselected.

 

ill give it a shot for the whole page i guess

prolly a style sheet is the way to go. find a page that has a style sheet

properly executed and then copy that. you could also try to add a

behavior to the text (from the behavior palette), and try to control it that way...

 

i dunno, besides emailing the page to someone on here who knows

how to do it, and then having them do it for you, so you know how

to do it in the future!

Beardo,

 

Put this in your <a href="" style="text-decoration:none">

 

That will do it. You should have it in a style sheet, but that will work as an inline style.

 

Your friendly neighborhood web developer.

<style type="text/css">

 

 

 

A:active {text-decoration:none }

A:visited {text-decoration:none }

A:hover {text-decoration:none }

A:link {text-decoration:none }

 

 

 

</style>

 

 

 

put this in between your open and close <head> tags. This saves having to do it for every link.

Dreamweaver allows you to look at what your

making in 3 ways; 1. the layout view ( what it

should look like on the web),2. the code view (

what the actual markup 'html' looks like), 3. you

can split the work windo and see both.

 

Chances are your working only in layout view. At

the top of your work widow are 3 buttons, click

the split view to see the code 'html'.

 

looks like this:

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<html>

<head>

<title>Untitled Document</title>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

<span style='color:#3c3c3c'>

 

<style type="text/css">

A:active {text-decoration:none }

A:visited {text-decoration:none }

A:hover {text-decoration:none }

A:link {text-decoration:none }

 

 

 

</style>

 

</span>

 

 

</head>

 

<body>

 

</body>

</html>

 

 

 

 

ez as pie.

i was actually rather dissappointed w/ this album... after hear l'roneous' first album, i was reallly anticipating it. elusive hooked him up w/ some great beats, and even the tracks elusive rapped on were fresh (see regiments) in a thuggier-than-L kinda way.. i haven't heard the project he did w/ acey, but dreamweavers was kinda jiggy for me and the grouch is way out of place on it.

Did you mean open a image up in a new window? You can do that a bunch of different ways. The most common is to give it a "target=_blank". Or you can use a javascript similar to one on this page: http://www.angryblue.com/gallery_posterart.shtml.

 

 

My best advice to you is to LEARN CODE. Don't let dreamweaver do everything for you. HTML is the easist program language to grasp. Once you get a good understanding you can view the source on all your favorite sites and figure out how they did it.

 

Once you learn styles you will kick yourself for not using them on your previous sites.

 

Learn how to use iframes, but don't over do it.

It shouldn't be hard to find how to do that in your book. I used Dreamweaver for a couple of years before I learned HTML. I actually still use Dreamweaver for most things, but knowing HTML makes it really easy for me to fix things and make adjustments to the code. Plus if I'm using frames I never use Dreamweaver for the frameset. That's just a pain in the ass.

I wouldnt recommend using frames at all. For various reasons. If you already have frames on your site, you may want to go with opening the image in a new window. But I dont know what you are intending so I cant give real advice.

Just out of curiousity, why are so many people against frames? My teachers always say that it's bad design to use them. I don't use them often, but sometimes it's the easiest way to get the desired result.

Oner,

 

Frames arent as terrible as many people claim. But they do have some issues, for example, if you use them in a site that has more than one page of information and somebdy tries to bookmark your site, the frame causes them to only be able to bookmark the page the frame is on. Another problem is browser compatibility. Frames can get a little tricky in different browsers. There are other reasons, if you do a search on the subject you will come up with many more.

this site is teaching me HTML

very clear and concise

http://www.htmlgoodies.com/

you gotta give a link to your site

when your done so i can check it out

learn enough html and just go to well designed sites and borrow their code. the better design the simpler the code.
