View Full Version : help needed with html

Hi all,
I could do with a little help with html. I have put h1 and h2 html header text on my site. I know very little about html. What I want to do is change the font, colour and size of the wording. can anyone help? The h1 is "wedding car hire wigan"
The h2 is "Rolls Royce & Daimler DS420"

Dave, - you have to put it like this:

<center><h1> <font face="comic sans ms" color="#12345 size="4"> your text</font></h1></center>

replace with your info - the font you want, color # you want, size you want - obviously your tag - and you don't have to center - I just usually center my headlines - so put that in for you also.

Of course, put this in your html box and place properly on the page.

H2 would be the same - with h2 going in the above where h1 is currently.

What color chart are you using. Should be using Hex#, your code should probably be #00008b no dash

I also use this one:
because I can convert the colors easily from the numbers on voda.

Bethers, what do you mean "convert the colours from the numbers on voda" Also some colour changes seem to work and others don't. I want blue 0000ff but it comes up green????????

11-23-2006, 09:07 PM
#0000ff is blue - can you show me where you have the code - so I can see what's happening - or give me here the html you're inserting?

Well, on BV you can select the colors by selecting custom - but you need to know the code to put in to get the correct colors - so if you know the code is 0000ff and you want to select that on BV - go to the page I gave - enter that code and it will give you the properties - which you can use in BV to select it.

(You can't do that in the html - which is why I'm asking to see your html to see if there's an error in your coding).

Hi Bethers, the code i have put in is as follows.
<center><h1> <font face="times new roman" color="#0000ff size="1"> wedding car hire wigan, bolton,st.helens north west</font></h1></center>

If you look on viewing our cars page you can see its green.

It's not doing the color because you left off a quotation mark after the color - here it is with the right color - and size one is really small for a headling - also, you have to have spaces where they belong between commas and words - se's will otherwise read it all as one word -

here is the code correctly done:

<center><h1> <font face="times new roman" color="#0000ff" size="1"> Wedding Car Hire Wigan, Bolton, St. Helens northwest</font></h1></center>
