|Chat Room Tips and Tricks:
OLI’s chat rooms understand HTML (the language of the Web) which means you can post pictures, links, stream movies and music as well as enhance text. Here’s some examples:
- Post a picture:
The address is also known as the URL.
- Link to another Web page:
<a href=”http://address.of.link”> The Link </a>
Fill in the Web site address (URL) where it says “address.of.link”
- To make your chat words bold:
<b> Bold Word </b>
- To make your chat words big:
<font size=+1> Big Word </font>
Note: Change the number "1" to a larger number to make the word bigger.
- To change the color of your chat words:
<font color=red> Red word </font>
(You can choose any color, such as green, blue, white, etc…)
- To post a movie or play sound:
Sound and movie files come in many different software formats, each requiring different code for insertion into a Web page. Consult the software maker for the appropriate code.
Internet Explorer users: to turn off the clicking sound you hear when surfing the Web and chatting, read this info.
