ezHTMLarea Help

I hope you will enjoy ezHTMLarear. Start experimenting with all the buttons (see below). You can even start by copying parts of a web page. Even better, use my ready made templates (). Click on the preview button and see the results. Note that the preview page is not your actual page but just a window to visualise your page. When you're happy with your it, click on the save button . Use the Open button to make changes in another session. See Enabling ActiveX Controls in order to use the Open/Save functions.

Note: I am still trying to find a way to add color and a picture for the background. Meanwhile, you can try to do the following:

When viewing your SAVED file, go to View / Source and replace "WHITE" by a Hex value. You can choose a Hex value from the Web-Safe Colour Picker :

body {background-color: #CCCCFF; background-image:url(PICTURE); font-family: "Arial"; font-size: x-small;}
.headline {font-family: arial black, arial; font-size: 28px; letter-spacing: -2px;}
.headline2 {font-family: arial black, arial; font-size: 12px; letter-spacing: -2px; color:red}
.headline4 {font-family: verdana; font-size: 18px; letter-spacing: -2px; color:blue}

As for an image in the background, replace "PICTURE" by the URL of a picture:

body {background-color: WHITE; background-image:url(http://www.site.com/picture.jpg); font-family: "Arial"; font-size: x-small;}
.headline {font-family: arial black, arial; font-size: 28px; letter-spacing: -2px;}
.headline2 {font-family: arial black, arial; font-size: 12px; letter-spacing: -2px; color:red}
.headline4 {font-family: verdana; font-size: 18px; letter-spacing: -2px; color:blue}

here's how to find the URL of a picture on the internet:
Right-click on a picture / Properties / triple-click on the address (URL) / Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V to paste it;

I have also inserted some instructions in the codes of your page (Edit / View in Explorer).

Have fun!
