A Word To The Wise
A brief note about linking to our graphics...Victorian Bazaar loves everyone who visits our site and you are welcome anytime, however, there are some people who are using our bandwidth! If you are using our bandwidth, please don't do this ~ it is wrong. There are lots of free sites for uploading your own graphics and midis. We pay for our site and for the right to have our own domain name. We know who you are...in fact we track everyone who visits our site. So please do the right thing and upload to your own Internet Service Provider (ex.: angelfire, yahoo, excite, netzero, geocities). If you do not know what this means, please click and go to this informative website A word to the Wise and find out more. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated!
Other Useful Tips
How To Copy/Paste
This tip will save you a lot of typing! In order to copy/paste:
1. To highlight, place your mouse cursor to the left of
the text you would like to copy. Hold down your left mouse button and drag
it over the text you wish to highlight. Release your mouse button. You
will see the text highlighted!
You have now moved the text without typing everything all over again. This is the first function I learned when Windows first came out! It's a very helpful tool and saves time.
Placing Your Border Backgrounds
To use a border design on your web pages so that your text is aligned correctly for Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers, place this code in your HTML document just after the body background and text color tags:
<table width=85% align=right><tr><td>
You can still use this method by adjusting the table width. If your content is still not aligned correctly, decrease the table width. At the very end of your page, just before the closing body & html tags, close your table like this:
Placing Your Music
To place music on your web page music plays consistently, place this code in your HTML document:
<bgsound="song.mid"><embed src="song.mid" autostart=true controls width=51 height=15 controls=smallconsole loop=true></embed>
Placing Fonts On Your Website
To place a specified font on your web page, this is a sample code to use in your HTML document:
<font size= "3" face="Book Antiqua">
Place your text on the site. At the end of your text place:
You can change your fonts
Like this if you would like
Or Even Like this!
Just remember one thing ~ if you have downloaded a font from a site and you place that font in your HTML code, it may be a font others do not normally keep in their computers. In this case, your font will default back to the normal font. Others will not see your special font. However, you will be able to see it because you have it in your computer.
To AOL Users
If you are building a site on AOL and are using a AOL
browser in order to copy/save images to your own harddrive, under your
Preference menu, turn off the Use Compressed Graphics option. Without this
option, the images will be saved in an AOL format and will give you broken
images when we all visit your site using Netscape or MSIE (Internet
Explorer). For further information see: Web
Development on America Online.
If you are viewing our site with AOL 3.0, go to keyword "Preferences"; if your using 4.0, go to "My AOL", then choose the option "Preferences". Click on the "WWW" button. Click on the "Web Graphics" tab. UNCHECK the "Use Compressed Graphics" box, click on "apply", then "ok".
If not, try to keep in mind that our sites are correct, just not to you and other people who are using AOL's browser. We know what the problem is, we just can not fix it for you, but maybe you can. I have listed several options above to help set your browser and computer to the correct specifications in order to browse our site and the site of millions of other people correctly.
If you are using a MAC, click-HOLD when you are over the image of your choice, then save to your hard drive.
Thank you for reading the above and have a happy day!
