Basic HTML for MySpace

Part of the MySpace For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Use HTML (HyperText Markup Language) to change how your MySpace profile looks and what appears on your MySpace page. Here's some basic HTML that you can use with your profile. (You fill in the text between the quotation marks.)

Action HTML to Use
Bold text <b>Enter bolded text here</b>
Italicize text <i>Enter italicized text here</i>
Font color <font color="Color of Font"></font>
Font size <font size="Size of font from 1-7"></font>
Bulleted list <li>Listed Item</li>
Insert an image into a comment, message, or on your profile page. <img src="URL of the image" width="width of image in pixels">
Insert a link into a comment, message, or on your profile page. <a href="URL of web page">Title of link</a>
Note: You can add the target="blank" option to open the link in a new window.
Link an image in a comment, message, or on your profile page. <a href="URL of web page"><img src="URL of image" width="width of image in pixels"></a>
Note: When you link an image, a border automatically appears to show that it's linked. If you want to remove that border, you can add the border="0" option to your <img> tag.
Display a text box that allows users to easily copy code or text <textarea rows="number of rows in text box" cols="number of columns in text box">Text or code that you want to be copied.</textarea>
Special MySpace characters You can use these MySpace characters in the text you enter, such as your display name, your headline, and any type of message you send.
