If you are expecting to write many HTML documents, and especially if you will be using options not among those included in the standard browser editors, you will need to invest some time in learning HTML. These pages are a guide to how to do this. You will need to use a text editor (Notepad or Wordpad in Windows are good).
In general, WWW pages are in the public domain, and unless otherwise explicitly indicated, the "information" contained in them is accessible, and open to copying. Browsers like Netscape make it easy to save information from a WWW page.
If you find a page which you like, you can see how the effect is produced by looking at the HTML source. In Netscape, click on View (from the Menu bar), and then Page Source, or rightclick on the page and select View Source. Your Bowser will then open a new window, and display the HTML document.
You can save the document as a whole by using the File menu, and selecting Save as... from the options. You can then edit the document locally using any text editor (eg. Notepad, under Windows).
You can download sections of the document from the window that pops up using View Source, by hilighting the section of interest. In Windows, with the left mouse button depressed, drag the mouse icon through the bit you want, and copy it to the clipboard the page using Ctrl Ins.
