Nove-Noga.Info: HTML and CSS
When I started the Nove-Noga project, one of the key elements was to learn and understand the programming tools that I would be using to create my web pages. 

My first programs were written using punch cards in 1978. Over time, I have realized that I am a programmer by nature. During my first programming class, I was asked to help a fellow student debug her programs. I apologized and was forced to admit that I did not know how to debug programs because my programs did not have bugs. I knew that I was in trouble before I even opened my mouth.

I did learn about debugging with my programming final. It was a complex program and there was plenty of room for mistakes. It was a vector sum analysis in 20 dimensions that we used as the matrix for a computer dating program. I was able to involve the rest of the class in the creation of the questionnaire and ran a test with nearly 100 of our classmates. The results were quite interesting. 

The point is that I like programming and like to know what is going on with my website. Every line of code that I use in the Nove-Noga project was placed there by me. You may not care to learn as much as I have but I would point out that a little knowledge of HTML and CSS will make it easier to get your Press Release to come out the way that you want. 

I started by working my way through W3Schools to learn how to create the most basic of pages. In due course I learned how to create an HTML page and use CSS to control the display of content. These are really very simple formats. The problem comes when you are confronted with all the strange symbols and syntax that is used to create the HTML pages. 

One of the great things about IBO Toolbox is the sharing of information and resources. I found a tutorial series through one of my IBO Toolbox Associates that does a very good job of explaining simple HTML and CSS. You can find links to both tutorials and W3Schools at

HTML is Hyper Text Markup Language and CSS is Cascading Style Sheets. We use HTML for the information in our websites and CSS to control the display. There is a lot of depth to both but I would like to make a simple suggestion. Find what works. Then, copy and paste. Pretty soon you will understand more about what you are working with and you will begin to expand your efforts.

For example, in each of my Press Releases, there are two common elements. After the first line of the Press Release, you will see my Favicon. At the bottom of the Press Release, you will see my standard closing. Each of these elements, I copy from my working text file and paste in the HTML mode of the PR Editor. 

In addition, my link to is also inserted from my working text file. That is why my links are Blue instead of Black changing to Red on mouseover. (I just don’t like red unless I mean stop.) 

If you are working on your own website, I recommend that you download a copy of Google Chrome to your computer. Even if you don’t use it as your regular browser, it is very useful for looking at HTML files created on your own computer. If you look at this Press Release with your Google Chrome browser, you can right click the page and view the page source. It may be very confusing but if you use cntrl-f to search for “HTML and CSS” it should take you to the beginning of this Press Release. Then you can look for the pieces that I have inserted. 

Perhaps you will come back to that later. This PR will still be here. In the meantime, for a beginners guide to HTML and CSS, go to the new page. Maybe you will find his instructions easier to follow. I still recommend W3Schools as a reference resource. They have a lot of great information.
