Basic html question? (in Off-topic)

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] January 21 2010 7:01 PM EST

I missed the last couple days in my basic web design class. So i was wondering if Carnage blender could help me out. I seemed to get everything pretty well accept for two things.

1) How do you make a bulleted list inside of a bulleted list? Example see below


2)How do I get a image from my own computer NOT off the web onto my webpage? Ik it's something along the lines of

<img source = file name.jpg

but everytime i try this i just get a broken picture link thing ;/..

Thanks for the help! :)

as far as the bullet inside bullet, do this. note that when you do the first html list command, you set-up the first bullet-ed list, then list all of the second lists inside that with the same function. be sure to close off all of your commands in the end

<li>letter a
<li>number 1
<li>number 2
<li>letter b
<li>number 1
<li>number 2

i have to post some more text so that it allows me to go through. i can't use the nospellcheck tags because i need it in plain text to show my html above. i guess i could have re-done all of my brackets into ampersand codes to show, but that would have required me to look them up. someone needs to make a command for plain text. please ignore this text. please ignore this text. please ignore this text. please ignore this text.

Thanks Natasha!

That totally makes up for the heavy farming you did on me this morning ;)..

for the picture thing, if you ONLY want to view the image locally (in other words, NOT connecting to the internet), then you just need to do

<img src="location_on_computer.jpg">

for example, if your picture is located in C:\test\lochnivar.jpg,

then do
<img src="file:///C:\test\lochnivar.jpg">

ok, but remember, these are only if you have the image on your computer and the only way you want to view them is without internet just from your computer.

if you have an image you want the whole world to see, you'll need to upload it to a server (which you said you have access to). then you just need to point it to the address:

<img src="">

For the list, Natasha is absolutely right. Her code will put out an UNordered list. Replace all the "ul" by "ol" if you want a nicely numbered list.

Use <ol style="list-style-type:upper-roman"> and <ol style="list-style-type:decimal"> in Natasha's example to get lists with letters or numbers.
