Chapter 1. Neat Stuff with Text

Many people think that text is a simple and routine element of making a Web site—just slap on some font size tags, enter the text, and that’s it. But there are many other cool things you can do with HTML to enhance your text. The techniques covered in this chapter are

  • HTML+Time

  • Perl SSI: The Include Command

  • ASP SSI Example

  • SSI: Dates and Time Includes

  • SSI: File Returns

  • JavaScript Escape Characters

  • JavaScript Tabs


When you own as many reference books as I do, you tend to actually sit around and wait for commands that are not yet active to become active. Yes, I know it’s sad, but what are you going to do? There’s nothing good on television.
