Hypertext

Have you been caught without your WYSIWYG editor yet? You know, when you're leaving a comment on someones blog, or trying to add a description to a photo and the text input box doesn't have the button for creating a link, making bold, or making italic.

Let's drill this tonight. It comes in very handy.

1. Do a Google search for "what is the HTML for a link?". If your first result is something from W3Schools - you're on a good path. But just about anything will do.

2. Leave a comment to this post and use the HTML to link to the page you found and are referring to.

3. Now find me a good video on HTML and leave me another comment with a link to it.. but this time I want it all in italics

4. Finally, what does Wikipedia have to say about HTML.. is there a course on HTML at their sister project Wikiversity? So what you can find and leave another comment with a hyperlink and one word in bold and another word in italics.

5. If you think you have the hang of it, try commenting me a picture. I wonder if that one will work.

See you tonight at 6pm

Wikipedia has this to say about html:

HTML, which stands for Hypertext Mark-up Language, is the predominant markup language for web pages. It is essentially a scripting language that marks up text to indicate to a web browser how the text is to be displayed, as well as to enable links, and other features.
