Not this kind of rollover
It's so easy to create rollovers that it's not surprising that people use them for almost everything. While I don't recommend you use them for site critical things like navigation, there's no reason you can't give your pages a bit of extra interactivity by adding rollover text color changes. And it's so easy!

Choosing a web editor can be tricky. There are so many out there with so many different features. Last week I listed my favorite free Windows editors, but there are many that aren't free but you get a lot of bang for the buck. If your favorite editor isn't listed in the poll, why not share which one you prefer in the comments below. Or post your thoughts to my Facebook page.
Here is some more information about the editors I listed above:

HTML is NOT an STD
Yesterday on Facebook I posted about a study that just came out that said:
"...many Americans are lost when it comes to tech-related terms, with 11% saying that they thought HTML -- a language that is used to create websites -- was a sexually transmitted disease."
I am here to tell you that HTML is not an STD. In fact, this is a great place to learn what HTML really is. I even offer a free class where you can learn about HTML.
Please share this post so that your friends and family aren't worried about you when you say you're learning HTML. We don't want them thinking you've got an STD do we?
Edited to add: for my readers in India, HTML is not a subscriber trunk dial either... STD in the U.S. stands for "sexually transmitted disease."

It is more and more common to apply for a job and have to take a test to prove you are proficient at the software or technology required for the job. This can be very nerve wracking. But there are online exams you can use to test your knowledge of HTML and prepare for tests before you have to take them. I have found five sites that offer free HTML exams to help you prepare. Some are better than others, but you should find one that works for you in this list.

If you didn't do as well as you'd hoped on the tests or you want more tutorials before you try them, there are a lot of free resources for learning HTML right here on this site:
