Rich Text Editor: HTML Snippets
The Rich Text Editor includes a menu option called "HTML Snippets".
These are small blocks of HTML code that can be dropped into a page to create headings, floating tables for images and captions, and pull quote blocks. These snippets were created in order to make it possible to include headings, an important structural HTML component not otherwise presented in the editor, and small tables for images and pull-quotes that would be possible, but tricky, to build using the editor's interface.
HTML documents can be structured using heading tags. These tags are interpreted by the Web browser as defining the hierarchy and order of content within a page. There are six HTML heading tags, H1 is the highest level. The HTML snippets menu lists headings 3, 4, 5, and 6 for use within the content well. (Headings 1 and 2 are used within the site template).
The SCU Web site's global style sheet includes font size and color formatting attributes for each of the heading tags, which helps to ensure a standard look-and-feel across all sites.
Floating Image and Caption tables
To insert one of these snippets into a page, hit the enter key to create a paragraph break, then select the left- or right-aligned image/caption snippet.
