biggrin.gif [b] I took from Philosophy what I could understand and morphed it into what I could communicate to others. I want to do the same with HTML (TAGS). Using one word, one title, picture, slide, video or webpage. I understand HTTP://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/html_tag. But the (tags) excite me more than using the whole www line. Like a hover note webpage message definition and such. I had a idea when e-mailing friends or whomever one could enter a (TAG) instead of a www line except for the www link itself. I feel this is a new and excited way to teach anyone who understand the basics of writing and reading a new way.

I am excited about using a tag over the www line like Philosophy=http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML_tag
I personally feel I will never use all the language but would love to develop my own personal style or shortcut to use a a teaching tool. If I sixty years ago had this language I would be a better writer and communicator today. Thoughts please. pljamesone@att.net

I think you need to explain in more detail. I don't follow. blush.gif

I wonder if you really understand the HTML markup language and its tags. Writing a web page is something completely different than writing as a writer. They are two distinct professions. Of course, you can write about whatever subject you like as a writer and turn that into a web page (or HTML email). But for that, you'll need to learn the HTML language.

From your PM to me, I understand that you are looking for a tag that can be hovered to reveal something else. This can only be done by using HTML and CSS (Cascading Style Sheet). And even then, you can't reveal an entire web page or video, just a preview image of it.

But I think that goes much further than what you are really looking for, so I won't explain how to code a hover tag for now.
I must say I had to read your post here and your PM several times, and still, I'm not sure I understand.

Frederick,
Thanks for your patience. Say in the middle of a sentence (e-mail) you have a extra thought you want to reveal (use a link) instead of these eclispes's. I love wikipedia because it defines data that relates to the subject (embeded) within the piece. Tags are a tremendous way to teach within a sentence without using further paragraphs. Thoughts please. pljames

HTML email isn't the same as a web page. Email clients are limited compared to browsers and one needs to keep it simple. It sounds like you talk about some hide/show thing and that's not for email.

Of course you could create a web page instead of writing an email and send them the link.

Just thought I'd add to the discussion.

It sounds like pljames simply wants a hidden div. That doesn't sound too complicated, considering HTML and CSS can work well in emails, but only with moderation.

Of course, you would have to check the functionality across a variety of email clients.

I find when writing e-mail there are more html tags I do not understand. I understand the www. thing. Say where the link is there is a name tag and when you touch it it brings up a small box with writing in it. When you remove the cursive the tag goes back to the original tag. Does that help? pljames
P.S.I love html but I only want to use certain parts of it. Like English words.

That's fairly easy but I wouldn't try it in an email. I didn't understand the A name part though.
