Need a little HTML help
« on: March 22, 2008, 05:56:18 PM »
So I am taking a web-design course. I am happy about it, not so happy about how long it takes just to make one page. It really makes you appreciate a favorite website even more. Anyways, I don't want to drone on too long but I am in bit of pickle. Our Professor provided us with a in-depth tutorial to get us started, but he on purpose I might add, neglected to tell or direct us directions to create a list that would look like this:

                            Connie Fused
                               a.
                               b.
                               c.

Does anyone here know which html code I would need to do this. Forgive me if this is the wrong section.

You're looking to create a table or a list.  Either would work.

This belongs in Elliquiy U, I'll move it shortly.

There are two types of lists, and like Hunter said you can also use tables.

Unordered lists:
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_ul.asp

Code: [Select]
Connie Fused<br />
<ul>
 <li>a.</li>
 <li>b.</li>
 <li>c.</li>
</ul>

And ordered lists:
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_ol.asp

Code: [Select]
Connie Fused<br />
<ol>
 <li>a.</li>
 <li>b.</li>
 <li>c.</li>
</ol>

There are various style elements for getting things to look the way you want.

Well I guess I would be using the table tags then. But I don't understand if the thing I am to make is not a spreadsheet why would I need to use a table tag?

Err, to be more specific, you'd use the type tag.

Code: [Select]
Connie Fused<br />
<ol type="a">
 <li>This would have 'a.' before it</li>
 <li>'b.'</li>
 <li>'c.'</li>
</ol>

Do remember that the 'type' attribute is depreciated, though.
