LOVD Manual

Use of HTML within LOVD

In some fields, you are allowed to use HTML markup. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language, and is the language used to create webpages. HTML allows you to define markup in headers, footers, notes and other information.

There are so many books and websites about how to write HTML, that explaining HTML here, even the basics, is useless. In stead, I will provide a couple of links that may help you find your way in HTML.

World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) The W3C is responsible for the definition of HTML standards and provide full documentation on all HTML versions, however they provide quite technical reading.
A Beginner's Guide to HTML By the NCSA, The National Center for Supercomputing Applications in the USA.
Introduction to HTML By Ian Graham, author of the "HTML Sourcebook".

Please note that when using HTML in LOVD, you do not need to declare or close the <HTML>, <HEAD> or <BODY> tags, since LOVD will do this.
