These are some copy and paste tag examples to use in skyWriter. They include the basic tags for inserting Links, Images, Lists, and Tables, and for using Attributes.

Link Tags

A hyperlink: (To link to an anchor, href="#anchorName")

your link text

<a href="">your link text</a>

A hyperlink that opens in a new window:

your link text

<a href="" target="_blank">your link text</a>
(opens another new window each time)

your link text

<a href="" target="yourwindow">your link text</a>
(opens into same "yourwindow" every time)

An anchor (in-page) link:

(To link to this point in the page, use href="#anchorName" in a link)

<a name="anchorName"></a>

e.g.,   <a href="#top">go to top</a>   will jump to   <a name="top"></a>.

An email link:

skyBuilders Info

<a href=""> skyBuilders Info</a>

An image:
