    hi, I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much, I found this website a few hours ago and I have learnt so much and it has answered heaps of my questions really clearly and is so easy to understand and you have amazing examples and codes. This has really helped me with my school assignment to create a website using HTML and I am so grateful, thank you!

  3. Nelson says:

    Hey, thanks for the tutorials, man. I couldn’t have done my website without your Smart Frames.

  4. Ok, I just wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
    I have been following your HTML tutorials and they are SOOOO well written and you make things VERY clear and easy to understand.
    I am so glad I found this site and I will be in debt to you forever more!
    I’m also looking forward to following your other tutorials as well in the future!
    Thanks again-

    Brilliant tutorial.
    I got some of the mods to work.
    I’m too slow to follow along.
    How about setting up one of those “take remote control” type things and charge fifty bucks via Cr. Crd. to do the “Restore Fire-Fox”?
    I’ll drink a beer and eat a cheese burger while I watch you do it?


  6. john says:

    Thanks. Great tutorial ! i like the chapters about the use of tables. css is way
    cleaner and more semantic and bla bla but to learn writing you should learn
    the building-blocks of websites from the past! and are still used a lot!!

    keep on this very nice tutorial.perhaps html 5 is posibble?

  7. Collin Blatt says:

    I am very thankful for this website.
    If it wasn’t for these tutorials I wouldn’t have the love for making websites.
    I am only in High School but I hope to be a web developer in my future.
    I am currently making a website for my Rocket Club.

    Hi Robert-

    I somehow happened upon your website yesterday evening, and I just wanted to tell you I think you’ve done an excellent job with your clear explanations of the multitude of internet related subjects you tackle. I do SEO part-time, and while I concentrate on PHP based WordPress sites, I am inspired by your material to finally fill in the gaps in my knowledge of HTML and CSS. Great job, Thanks.


  9. Awesome website.
    This is (by far) the best HTML tutorial I found, and now (thanks to you and some other websites) I know everything about HTML and CSS. Love you (hahaha)!

  10. Tina says:

    Hello. I am interested in creating a website for Activism Club at my university, which I just started, and I can’t tell you how helpful all of this has been! Thank you so much!!!

  11. Kathleen Lake says:

    This is an amazing gift — just got through telling somebody I needed exactly this; a guide that would walk me through from scratch, without assuming I knew anything. What a joy to find this. Can’t wait to use it.

  12. Alexis says:

    so the above is my preexisting website…which loads slowly and i am not all satisfied with. I set out searching for a better alternative ( i have been through several free webhosting parties already) and although i set out to switch everything over to a new experiment, i found myself reading your instructions, for hours, way too late at night to use my new tools, but nevertheless I am excited to start tomorrow with a fresh and new understanding of what i actually want from a web hosting server and because of your writing i’ve decided to stop being cheap and pay for it,lol.
    I’ll probably have more questions but it looks like you have more answers, so now i have hope :) Thanks so much for your time and exhaustive research….even if only for your own gain in the begining.
    I appreciate it.

  13. Ian MacPherson says:

    I’ve come up with a workaround (based on your own awesome tutorial), which is not exactly what you “Wished for”, but might be reasonable for you.

    “Set HTML Kit so that when text is selected, if you press on Right Arrow –>, cursor jumps to end of selection and text is deselected. Likewise if you press on Left Arrow <–, cursor jumps to beginning of selection and text is deselected. (This is a standard in word processors and text editors. I don't know why HTML Kit decided to do things differently. Or did I miss something?)"

    Using the keyboard shortcut feature, define as follows:
    Shift + Left > Insert Text > “|{{SELTEXT}}”
    Shift + Right > Insert Text > “{{SELTEXT}}|”

    Not exactly a perfect solution, as it adds an extra key and an extra little memory fart to practice, but it does accomplish the “wished for” goal. Try it. Enjoy.

    I cannot begin to explain how extremely grateful I am to this website!

    My work had put me in charge of updating part of its website in part because the web master quit and in part because I had a pretty firm grasp on computer technology.

    Let me tell you though, I had absolutely no clue how do anything with webpages and quickly went looking for a 101 guide. I happened to stumble across this page and began clicking through it from the beginning.

    Now, I may not be a master but I definitely have a good fundamental understanding of HTML and writing web pages and it is ALL thanks to this amazing guide you put together.

    You gave me the basic knowledge of how get what I needed done and now I am starting to expand on this knowledge that you presented to me.

    So, as I stated earlier I AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL!!!! Definitely the best beginners guide to all things relating to web writing.

    Look the teacher in you is ever present by even showing us how to put comment boxes into our sites! :)

  15. Kevin G says:

    I’m really in your debt- that you would put so much time and enery into putting all of this info on a free site-
    I paid to have my company site set up a couple of years back and then ……. nothing past “under construction”. There’s a site all right, but now it just sits in construction limbo- ‘why’ is another …. .
    Anyway, your site rocks!!! The tutorials are clear and don’t take a semester and a wad of tuition and fees to get up and understanding–

  16. Cole Davis says:

    Great template. People say my site is great. Any untidiness is strictly my fault!

  17. THANK YOU!!!!! You got me out of a JAM !

  18. Kelly says:

    Thanks sooo much for this tutorial! I just started a new job that needs me to update our web page and I had zero web editing experience and knew NO html. I went through many sites that were incomplete or difficult to navitgate to troubleshoot specific problems I was having. After a few hours of searching for info, your site gave me everything I needed and it was so easy to find!

    Thanks again – truly grateful.

  19. Willy Cabrera says:

    Hi Rob-remarkable website! I was searching for: “Creating Hyperlinks” and somehow I landed on your website. Remarkable, due to the fact that you are helping so many in creating their very own websites whom have no knowlege of HTML, etc. Without doubt, you’ll be getting lots of visitors to your website.

    I will be visiting your website quite often on and LEARN from all your great works.

    Much obliged for an individual such as you.

  20. Micah says:

    I’m going into eight grade next year and am going to be learning how to design web pages. Now,thanks to you, I have a head start. I love this web site.

  21. Rich K says:

    Thanks for your easy to follow instructions on the formmail setup. I was finally able to make my contact form on my website work properly after 3 different programs and 3 days of trying. I gave up on the last program and downloaded from your site and was up and running in 20 minutes. I also used the link in your tech support out to lunch page to find the sendmail path and perl path. Thank you very much.

  22. abhinav jain says:

    its really really amazing…………
    i have got the best tutorials i could get..
    i’l try to daily follow this wonderful site..
    thanks a lot…………..

  23. Erica says:

    You’re a lifesaver!

    My new job wanted me to design and update their website but I have no web designing experience what so ever(haha)!
    After a couple of days of googling, researching and learning, I’m getting a hang of all this website stuff. Your website (especially) helped me a lot and I have to say how GRATEFUL I am. :)I’m actually making progress!

    I’ll definitely recommend beginners to come here for help.

  24. Bill Quick says:

    I build web sites from scratch, but when I needed to pull something together fast for myself, I grabbed one of your templates, slapped in a few mods and some text, and had a professional looking site up and running in a couple of hours.

    Just what the doctor ordered! Thanks!

  25. Karen says:

    I’m really new at this and your website was quite helpful. I’m trying to test my site offline but for some reason the links won’t work. I get a message that says “done, with errors” on the bottom and it never displays. I have the two files in the same directory as the index.htm. Not sure what the problem is. I added teh about.htm and contact.htm files. Is it some setting that is not letting them display?

    I am a new learner. Would you kindly let me know how to create the sub-menu for the above template36, or other templates made by you.

    Honestly speaking, I love to use your templates very much. You are really wonderful!

  27. Roger says:

    Hey, are you still there? I just came across your website from html toolkit site and it’s pretty cool. I am new to website design and really love working with html and css. Learning all all this new stuff can be overwhelming! I want to build websites for people, nice clean websites. I get discouraged from time to time, but your story really inspired me to keep moving forward. If you have any advice for a new guy please tell me. By the way I am 41 years old. I know to old, but who cares. Thanks again for all the great information.

  28. Style-Structure says:

    Great information! I was looking for something simple. How to create a default option for an HTML form dropdown. After 35 mins and lots of useless pages I found your site. . Very nice. I have bookmarked the site and will be reading through other tutorials.


  29. Walter De Haes says:

    Thanks for your introduction to the kit.
    A question: how to specify the properties of a heading?
    The heading text is duly introduced by <h1 aso, yet it has the same font type as body text.
    An early answer would oblige.

  30. brandon walker says:

    ARG! my last message was a fail! it turned my examples into hyperlinks! ok just to clarify: when i set it up to turn yellow on hover over it would only work on inaccurate links
    like: “” but when it was a correct link like: of “ it would stay its normal color

  31. brandon walker says:

    great site, but i have a couple questions. first you should know ive read all of the css stuff but im a little confused about “A:hover” i set it up so that when you hovered over a link it would turn yellow, but after messing around with it i found out it would only work on the links that weren’t correct! for instance: i had and it worked but then when i changed it to: it didn’t work any more!

    also how would a make a blog or some kind of forum using html?

  32. Heinz says:

    I’m a 44 year old computer illiterate.

    That said, your site is amazingly easy to understand as it takes me by the hand and allows me to follow the logical steps of using html in pure simple english. It takes the spook out of understanding nerd language! lol

    I wish your website would have been around 20 years ago!

  33. alice says:

    Your FormMail tutorial is truly amazing. As a Web technologies trainer, I go through form processing with students. The new concepts and problems that occur cause them a lot of stress. I will be telling students of your FormMail tut for sure and have created a link to it.
    Thanks for the great, easy to understand explanation.

  34. Greg Spam says:

    A BIG THANK YOU. It is very refreshing (and possibly unique) to be guided through setting up formmail in plain English. You don’t assume that everybody and beginners especially speak fluent computerish. If we did speak fluent computerish we wouldn’t be looking for help in the first place!
    I will be bookmarking your site for the future, and will pass on your domain name to whoever might need it.
    Thanks again.

    TO ALL:

    Humble apologies that all comments since the beginning of March did not get approved until just now. A glitch in my blog program is preventing me from getting email notifications of new comments. Henceforth, I’ll be manually checking for new comments to approve every morning.

  36. Ravi says:

    Hi Rob, this is ravi from bangalore India. I could create a small mobile wap site without anybodies help except I am a developer by profession but not in html. But now ironspider has made me a html freak too.. My desire was to have a wapsite of my own so i always read your (simple but very effective) articles during building my wapsite (even today i refer them and i know i will be refering it always to create more). i must say that a guy with zero knowledge of html created a wapsite within a week just bcz of this is my wapsite (still constructing for more). Thanks a lot and keep it up Rob.

  37. Leland Stone says:

    The information presented here is both helpful and expansive, easily accessible to less tech-savvy users like me. (I use a computer the way I use my truck, in that I’m more interested in what the machine can do rather than how it works.)

    This useful site has walked me through the steps needed to get the results I want. As an unexpected bonus, the tutorials are well-written, with an engaging and often humourous ‘voice.’ That’s piqued my interest in the process!

    Well done, and thanks.

  38. D.Sai Abhilash says:

    i searched the internet for hours to find what i needed for my site, to no avail until i came upone the iron spider site. thanks….

  39. taimur says:

  40. Jon says:

    This is a great site. I hope you’re getting paid for it somehow. I went with your suggestion for a free web host. We’ll see how it goes! God’s blessings to you as you serve with your talents!

  41. Momo says:

    Love it, love it, love it. No other site that I’ve found gives so much and makes it so fun. A great communication style–asking if we’re a robot or human heh heh.

    Having said that, it’s been 2 years and I still haven’t got my site figured out and up, but at least own my domain name

  42. Jesse says:

    The template I’m using from Iron Spider is my third one to use. I do web programming for a religious organization. They add and change information fairly regularly. The other templates I tried were complicated. This template is so easy to use I was able to change our format in less than a week and when they ask for changes I can change all of the pages in just a few hours. I’m the only one who really notices how great these templates are for that. What everyone else tells me is they love the visual layout of the new template. It makes our message easier to read and everyone compliments me on how quickly the pages load. I tell them everything is easier if you have good material to start out with. Your templates make me look good at my job. Thanks a million!

  43. Mark & Nancy says:

    My wife and I are both in our 50’s and struggling to get by. We have been contemplating a web site and promoting some things. We found EVERY answer on your site. Yikes…kind of daunting but you explain it so that us of the ‘Floyd ‘ generation can understand it as we read beneath our lava lamps. Dude…..

  44. kat says:

    Hi Rob,

    I’ve built and maintained hundreds of websites from code since 1995 using notepad at first, then what I think was the first (16 bit, 1998) html editor ever made, Web Media Publisher, and the moment I have dreaded for years arrived last week with my new computer running win7. Incompatibility. I could work like lightning in that old editor and was able to make all my own custom buttons. With heavy heart, I searched for, downloaded and test drove a few code editors and finally found HTML-Kit. From the moment I opened it, despite the bewildering capabilities, I knew it was the one for me. I’ve been getting some answers to my questions online and today I found your site. You are now my guru, therapist and savior. Thank you for all this work you have done- it was/is no small project. I am effusively grateful.

  45. Jerry says:

    I am in the business of selling stamps, not building the infrastructure. I would like a host site where I pay a relative min per month. I would happily pay a percentage of sales for someone to maintain it.

    Is this type of thing available?

  46. Eva says:

    Hi really liked your description on how to use class selectors, best I have seen sofar,(this including some good litterature). Read , changed my website and it worked right away!

    Your site is bookmarked for sure!

    Happy New Year Eva

  47. john stanley says:

    Just found your site. looks good and comments are impressive. I am trying unsuccessfully to help a friend edit her own web site set up by someone else. We are both complete novices so your site shoulod prove very useful. I will revisite when not falling asleep and leave aqnother comment. Thankyou again in advance.

  48. Steve says:

    Great tutorial on webforms, easy to read and understand and some nice examples too. Filled in a lot of gaps in my knowledge (as a comparitive newbie).

    Would love to see some stuff on validated the carp that some people put in.

    Thanks for a great site

  49. Joel says:

    Great Tutorial! Brilliant and got me up & runing in a day. Even added a drop-down list for the SUBJECT line and Rredirected to my own Thank You page.
    Couple of questions:
    1. Can I make the errors/ommissions appear as an error message on the form itself?
    2. Is there a code for confirming the visitor’s email by re-typing and comparing?
    3. Can I change the background color of the fill-in field?
    4. I am afraid to touch the .pl file to adjust for Eastern Standard Time. Any simple directions?
    Thanks again for giving me the ability to upgrade my web site!

  50. Joel Nuss says:

    Wow! I am a complete novice…ignorant of actual code writing but smart (devious enough) to manipulate and use what I can scrounge up on the World Wide Web.
    I went through your NMS FormMail tutorial and got it installed and running perfectly in about a day…and I know very very little! Even had to figure out the PERL path and CGI-BIN stuff. Great tutorial. I do have a couple of issues that I could NOT figure out:
    1. How do I get rid of the “SUBMIT” field that prints on the email sent back to me from the form…
    2. How do I get the DATE to Eastern Standard (I am in NY). Not sure which code in the .pl to touch and how to touch it for the GMT offset.
    3. How can I change the background color of the fill-in field on the form? Can’t figure that one out.
    4. How can I make the ERRORS for Blank or Incorrect fields appear in red as a message on the form itself rather than on another Error Page?
    5. Is there code to “CONFIRM” the email address by having the visitor re-type the addreess?

    Didn’t mean to ask so many questions….don’t want to seem greedy. But I would imagine that I am not alone regarding these issues, so why not ask. I freely admit that I cannot do it alone as I do not have the knowledge nor the time to develop it.
    Thanks again for a great tutorial! Much appreciated!
