MHTML

One file web pages



When a web page is created using HTML, the coding is normally contained in one file and the graphics in separate folders.

The Mime HTML or MHT/MHTML format changed that.

Starting with Office 2000 as an add-in and carried through XP as a "Web Archive" option, the format emerged in Office 2003 as a "Single file web page" selection in the File Save As dialog box.

Here are the Save As choices available in an application such as Word:
  • Web Page, Complete means that the contents of the page (including any pictures) will be saved into a folder as separate files, similar to those on the server hosting the site.

  • Web Page, HTML only means that only the HTML information will be saved. This option and Web Page, Complete will enable you to open the file for viewing in Internet Explorer (or any other browser) at a later time, even when you are offline.

  • Web Archive means that the page will be saved, along with any images it contains, as a single file. You can view a Web Archive later without being connected to the Internet.

  • Text File means that only the text on the page will be saved, not the HTML (or any other) formatting, including graphics.

New Window

Pick your target



Expression Web/FrontPage/HTML provides the opportunity to choose how a page opens when you click on a hyperlink.

Create a hyperlink as you usually would by selecting the text (or graphic) you want to use for the link.

Choose Insert > Hyperlink...
(or use Ctrl-K or the toolbar icon Link icon as a shortcut),
and locate the page in the current web or enter an address in the URL field.

On the right side of the Create Hyperlink window you'll see a button named "Target frame"; click the button.

You'll get the Target Frame dialog box.

In the "Common targets" field, select New Window.

Click OK, then click OK to close the Create Hyperlink dialog box.

Your hyperlink will now open a new browser window when clicked.

Target page

The code would appear like this:
<a target="_blank" href="TCC/Blog/blogger.html">Blog</a>

To make it the page default, place the following code in the "head" section:
<base target="_blank">

Learn HTML

More tutorials



I like to read more than one author on a subject. It helps to clarify the sticky parts and each writer has a little bit different perspective on the subject.

WebReference.com has a good collection of material related to the Web and the Internet in general.

Stephanos Piperoglou has written a number of tutorials on Web design and construction.
From HTML 101 to I Shot the Serif and The Seven Habits of Effective Web Sites .

Screen fonts preview


This is a tool that lets you see how different typefaces will look on the screen. It also allows you to compare three fonts at once.


"The Typetester is an online application for comparison of the fonts for the screen. Its' primary role is to make web designer's life easier. As the new fonts are bundled into operating systems, the list of the common fonts will be updated."
