TABLE of codes and actions

Formatting in this environment is a bit regemented but quite simple.

If you want a blank line in the HTML leave a blank line in the text.
If you want a hard return in the HTML start the following line with a space.

Beyond this there are two forms and a hand full of codes to remember.

When you want the text changed you preceed it with a code in {curly brackets} the codes are currently {I} Italics ,{B} Bold ,{U} Underlined and a variety of font changes listed below and here in tabular form.

The second condition is when you want a hyperlink embedded in the text. In this situation you would preceed the filename or URL with a code in {} The next line would become the linked text. Codes in this set include {R} Right Frame ,{L} Left Frame ,{T} Top (or master) Frame ,{N} New Window ,{#} a target in the current document or a target in another document in the set

and {F} A Foot Note

and {*?} The code for an inline image which is described in The Image Page

  • This will create an item with a leading bullet

  • {F}txt\form.ftn This should be a link to a footnote
    This creates a mailto: entry cart@nickerson.icomos.org


    http://nickerson.icomos.org/
    This creates a link from a single line (the following use the first line URL to link the second line)
    {L}dbf.htm This link should put dbf.htm into the left frame
    {R}over.htm This link should put over.htm into the right frame
    {N}images/overview.gif This link should put images/overview.gif into its own window
    This link should put the CARTHTML directory of nickerson.icomos.org into the top frame of the current session

    It is also possible to use the native HTML header types but their output is a bit hard to predict because of the blank space forced both before and after their insertion as you can see below.

    This is header 1


    This is header 2


    This is header 3


    This is header 4
