How to Use HTML in blog posts

Well, the WYSIWYG-editor can act strange by posting images, and it doesn't allow fine-tuning on its size. Since I once learned programming, but before the internet was common, I decided to do some investigations on HTML. And in order to do some easy copy and paint, I made a text-file. Then I thought it might be handy for some starting HTML-ers as well  ;-)

<!--------  LeftFloatImage 1/2  -------->
<a href=" ImgURLzzzzzzzzz " imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" width="320"
src=" ImgURLzzzzzzzz "   />  </a>

- The text between  <!--  and  -->  is just comment, to keep your program clear,;because as I've been thought: a good program is not only one that works, but one you still understand after a long period, in order to make modifications, without hours of studying the program.
- The ImgURLzzzzzzzzz  is where you paste the images URL: right click on the image, and choose "Copy URL"; I added the zzzzzzzzz to make it easy to find where you have to replace, and I made a one word of it, so double clicking allows you an easy replacement  :-)

How to Crochet Slippers


- crochet hook and yarn or plarn, fitted for each other. (for example: I used medium sized rather bulky plastic shopping bags, cutted in balls of plarn, with a width of 1/2 inch, which crocheted very well with a crochet hook of 3 mm. For my Belgian shoe-size 37, which is a length of 23cm, I needed 4 bags for the upper sides, 6 bags for the inner soles, and another 6 (black) bags for the outer soles, and I had enough left to crochet all together)
- when you will use plarn, it might be handy to know How to make plarn (click here)
- scissors
- measuring tape, to measure the foot and to know when your first sole is done.
- 8 help-strands: somewhat stronger strands, like cotton, to hold the pieces together while assembling
- a pencil or something to write down the numbers of your first slipper, so the second looks exactly alike, without the need of measuring
