How to show html code on a web page
need to show an example of code

 6:45 pm on Aug 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have cms set up on a website for the owner to post images and text. I am building a help page to show him how to insert images via html. I need to show an example of the actual code of an image. How can I do this?

Just wrap whatever HTML code u want him to read inside a <pre> tag (it can be any tag you want) that way he will see it as regular readable text and the browser won't process that code.

It will work like that but it won't let me add the < and > to the html code...when I add the brackets it shows an image placemat.

to insert a "<" you will have to type in: &lt;

and for ">" type &gt; in YOUR html code

that should do the trick, the ampersand and the semi-colon are both required

You can replace the "<" and ">" with the ASCII code for those characters.

So, it would look like this:

&lt;img src="image.jpg" width="20" height="20" border="0" alt=""&gt;

and would look like this when viewed in a browser:
<img src="image.jpg" width="20" height="20" border="0" alt="">

Thanks folks...great job!
I knew there was a way to do that but I could not for the life of me remember what it was. ;)
