View Full Version : <body> tag problem

03-03-2008, 07:19 AM
I'am currently migrating my old website from Frontpage 2003 to Dreamweaver CS3. I have beeen following a online tutorial, in which it details how to sucessfully move. I have come to a point in the tutorial which I do not understand. Here are the instructions:

You must put a specifc code before and after all instances of your <body> tag. However, this tag may have varying attributes in different pages. Therefore:

Replace all instances of your <body> tag containg your most standard attributes:
<body (standard attributes)>
<b*ody (standard attributes)>
I do not understand the "<body (standard attributes)>". In find and replace, how do I find "standard attributes" and what does this mean?

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

I am pretty sure it refers to any "onload" or perhaps inline CSS tags, id, margin, font attributes, etc.

In html, tags have attributes, an example using the body tag, since your tutorial is using it:
<body id="home">
-where 'id' is the attribute, and 'home' is the value of the id attribute.

The tutorial is asking you to look into your frontpage files and look for the common ones.
