Hints & tips

This appendix provides tips and suggestions for creating and maintaining your web pages using Camillo editor. Here you can find advice on using document files and comments within your programs, creating text animation routines, and more.

Text animation

If you plan to use any text animation routines such as RainbowText or ScrollingText within your web site, it is important that you also upload the JavaScript sub directory to your remote server. This directory can be found in the main Camillo directory,

Quick view

You can use the (Ctrl+W) shortcut keys to view your current web page using your default browser instead of selecting the Create Web Page option from the menu or toolbar.

Syntax highlighting

The editor uses syntax highlighting, which allows you to view your program source code in different colors. You can change the default colors by selecting System Colors from the View menu.

Expanding text

When using the ExpandingTex command to display this text effect within your web page, make sure to replace the <Body> section of your program with the following line of code.

<body onload="message()" onunload="stop()">

Project files

For best results when using images or sound samples within your pages, make sure that you store these files in the same directory on your remote site and on your computer.

Hypertext links

To ensure their validity, periodically check your web page Hypertext links using link checker software such as Xenu's Link Sleuth or Link Checker Pro. These programs analyze your web pages or website for broken links.

Using dialogs

You can add specific design elements, such as displaying images, creating hypertext links, and including text document files, within your pages using the editor's built-in dialogs, which can be activated from the editor's Format menu.

Document files

If you plan to include text document files within your Programs using the Display text dialog, only use document files that have been saved in plain text format.
