    2 questions

    Hi,

    I've got 2 questions:

    1) Is there any way to outline your text (in a table or when it's just text you have typed)? I can only find left, ceter and right as possibilies to "align"

    2) to have my site found by search engines, is it correct that the only thing I should do is add a <meta> tag with content etc. in it?

    To your first question:

    What do you mean by outline;

    1) underlined?

    2) bordered?

    3) text coloured?

    4) background of text coloured?


    To your second question;

    No.

    If your taking about underline, overline, this is how

    <style>

    .sometext{text-decoration:none;}
    .othertext{text-decoration:underline;}
    .moretext{text-decorationverline;}
    .evenmoretext{text-decoration:underline + overline; }

    </style>

    <span class="sometext">Blah Blah BLa....</span>
    <br>
    <span class="othertext">Blah Blah BLa....</span>
    <br>
    <span class="moretext">Blah Blah BLa....</span>
    <br>
    <span class="evenmoretext">Blah Blah BLa....</span>


    you can also align text in your tables like this:

    .centertext{text-align:center;}

    <table class="centertext">
    <tr><td>Blah Blah Bla...</td></tr>
    </table>
    Hairynugs


    Simple is best.

    Well,

    I don't know how it's called in English, but I mean the same thing as in MS Word: left-center-right-... --> It's the ... that I want, but I don't know the correct English term.

    As for my 2nd Q: what do you need meta-tags for then? Because I've read the code of some sites and they al have smth like this:

    <meta name="Description" content="blah,blah,blah,blah">
    <meta name="KeyWords" content="blah,blah,blah,blah">

    hmm... here is a list of all alignments-

    CENTER = <center>YOUR TEXT HERE</center>
    in a table use align="center"

    The same for left and right..

    or <div align="center">YOUR TEXT HERE</div>
    can be replaced with either left or right...

    or <blockquote>YOUR TEXT HERE</blockquote>
    Indents the text

    Multiple <blockquote> tags means a bigger indent

    example: <blockquote><blockquote>YOUR TEXT HERE</blockquote></blockquote>

    or it can be done with <p> or <span> tags:

    <p align="center">YOUR TEXT HERE</p>
    center can be replaced with left or right (or default)

    <span align="right">YOUR TEXT HERE</span>
    Right can be replaced with left or center..


    Answer your question???

    Meta tags do help a little on very few search engines. To get a high ranking on search engines, you need keywords on your page, keywords on your image names, keywords in your page names, keywords in your links, alt + title tags with keywords in, links to your site from various other sites, etc etc. You need lots of stuff. Also, if you want your site to be popular with keywords that are used very often, then you're gonna have to pay lots of money to be noticed.
