Throughout the book we included several examples of functioning HTML markup. While you could copy the code character for character from the book, we knew there had to be an easier -- and hence better -- way to help you learn from our examples. To that end, we've extracted all of the examples from the book and saved them as plain text files for you to work from.

We've created hyper-linked listings of the examples included in each chapter of the book to provide you with easy access to the example text files. The listings are broken down by chapter. To access the examples from a particular chapter click on its name below and the listing of the examples from that chapter will be loaded in to your Web browser. To view an example, simply click on its name. You will see the naked HTML code -- rated G of course -- followed by the Web page that results from that code. Some examples from Chapter 6, such as the <APPLET> tag only contain sample HTML code with no final display because they require elements, such as a Java applet, that are beyond the scope of these pages. To modify a code example you can cut and past the text from your Web browser into your text editor of choice and change away. To return to the chapter table of contents from a code text file press your Web browser's "Back" button.

If a chapter is listed but not hyperlinked that means we didn't include any examples in it. We didn't want you to think we accidentally skipped a chapters, so we listed all of them.
