Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.

If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely, Charles Kozierok
Author and Publisher, The TCP/IP Guide

Common Text Formatting Tags

There are also numerous tags that are used to format the appearance of text within a document; some of the more common ones:

  • <b>text</b>: Present the enclosed text in bold.

  • <i>text</i>: Present the enclosed text in italics.

  • <u>text</u>: Present the enclosed text underlined.

  • <font (parameters)>text</font>: Present the enclosed text using the indicated font type, size or color.

Again, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to HTML. If you are not familiar with HTML, however, knowing these basic tags should be enough to help you interpret basic HTML documents and learn how HTTP works.

Key Concept: The language used by World Wide Web hypertext documents is called the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). HTML documents are as ASCII text files, but are arranged using a special structure of HTML elements that define the different parts of the document and how they should be displayed to the user. Each element is described using special text tags that define it and its characteristics.
