If you know the source language for Web pages, HTML, or if you want to learn about it by example, use the Tools Show HTML menu item. You will see the HTML tags for the page.
AOLpress lets you edit the HTML source directly and then test your changes quickly. You might want to edit the HTML source to add tags for which AOLpress does not provide direct authoring support. You might also want to view the HTML source to find out how a particular page was created so that you can create similar pages.
<P>for paragraph) are blue, the HTML tag attributes (such as
ALIGN=to align items) are purple, hidden comments are green, and your text is black. AOLpress automatically indents the HTML code for headings, lists, and other structures to make the code easier for you to read.
You can open multiple HTML windows for different Page windows at the same time, if you like.
You can edit the HTML source and load the changes you make into the Page window. For example, you might want to add HTML extensions for which AOLpress does not provide direct authoring support.
If you use "server-side includes (SSI)" (also called "server-parsed HTML") to automatically include other files, environment variables, or the results of programs in your pages, you can edit your source code with AOLpress (if your pages are stored on a v2.0 or later AOLserver).
To make AOLpress load the HTML source files without interpreting the server-side include commands, choose ToolsPreferencesGeneral and put a check in the "Never Load" box for Server Side Includes. If you are viewing the HTML for a page, you can choose FileReload without SSI to see the server-side include commands and FileReload with SSI to see the results when the commands are interpreted.
Server-side include commands are stored as comments in the HTML code, so you only see them when you edit the HTML. For example, the command to include a file called "include.txt" would look like:
<!--#include file="include.txt" -->
