You've Been Framed

Less than a decade ago if you wanted to post information to the web, you needed to know HTML code.  While this is no longer the case a lot of the Web 2.0 applications that you use every day create that code for you in the background using WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editors.  If you ever look at the source of a webpage you'll be greeted by all that beautiful code (yes, I am a geek).  It can still be helpful to know about HTML or at least some of the primary codes that are out there.  For example, if you want to embed another web page within your blog, you will likely use the IFRAME tag.  But again, you don't have to know exactly how this works.  You can simply use the IFRAME code generator tool from HTML Basix. To do so, simply copy the URL address of the page you want to embed and fill out the rest of the form.  When you click the generate button, you will be presented with the code you need and can simply copy and paste it into your blog or wiki (just make sure you are in the HTML editor).  That's it.  Simple right?n  I can't tell you how often I use this tool and hope you find it useful as well.
