HTML editing?

([msg=67889]see HTML editing?[/msg])

I'd really appreciate some help. I just started learning HTML and hacking yesterday so I've got pretty much no idea what I'm talking about. In missions I'm having a problem editing HTML. Like in "Realistic Missions" level 1 Arnold's Band thing. I try to change the top bands name and web address with the inferno band (lowest band) making the inferno band the top to finish my job. Problem is, it won't let me edit the HTML. Best I can do is copy, I can't even paste. What am I doing wrong?

You can't change a websites HTML, as the file is hosted on the server, not on your computer. You can, however, copy and paste the code and change it all you want on your on computer, but it still won't change the code on the server. In fact, changing the HTML is no where close to the correct answer for Realistic 1, though you get an A for attempt. I would suggest you go back and do all of the basic missions, even if you've already done them.

Also http://htmldog.com/ and http://www.tizag.com/

As for what you were trying to do you could always save the webpage to your desktop and open it locally. However, unless you have the images and .css expect it to look different. This is good for learning basic design patterns used to create web pages. Don't forget to write as you learn about it.
