Enhanced Techniques

SO ... You'd like to learn some nifty tricks to use with web pages? Well, I'm happy to tell you what I know. If you don't know the basics of HTML, such as formatting and links, then I suggest you read some introductory material. I particularly like The Yahoo's HTML page, theThe HTML Writers Guild, or The Web Developer's Virtual Library.

If you have some tricks you think I should add to these pages, please mail them to me.
