HTML Page Setup

The one built in feature which will cause the most potential confusion is without a doubt the New HTML Page button (far left of the toolbar, the one that looks like a globe with a piece of paper on it).

As you might imagine, clicking on this button will create a new HTML document in Arachnophilia - unfortunately, it does it in such a way that we can't actually make use of the new document thus created.  As you can see by the screen shot above clicking on this button will bring up a dialog box which gives you the opportunity to pre-determine many aspects of how your HTML page will display.

The code it produces looks like this:



<TITLE>(Type a title for your page here)</TITLE>
<META NAME="GENERATOR" CONTENT="Arachnophilia 3.9">
<META NAME="FORMATTER" CONTENT="Arachnophilia 3.9">

<BODY BACKGROUND="" BGCOLOR="#ffffff" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000ff" VLINK="#800080" ALINK="#ff0000">


As it turns out, this code is useless to us because many of my toolbar buttons duplicate these items in a way which is more useful for stationery.  Therefore it is a good idea to just ignore this button altogether.  On the Creating your First Stationery page you'll learn how to create the HTML "template" file which will be used as a base on which to create stationery.
