You can actually work around this if you're using a browser with a developer tool that allows you to edit the page's DOM (source), like Chrome, or Firefox with Firebug. If you're using Chrome, you compose a new email in Gmail, type in some a dummy text, select it, and right click in the email body and select 'inspect element'. Highlight the dummy text, ...

Google uses a proprietary format called “kix”, which was introduced with the then new editor a few years ago. The basic structure of a kix file isn't comparable to structured markup (like docx which is basically a zipped collection of XML files holding content and styles) but rather like a data file which starts with the textual content followed by styling ...

You seem to be able to do this in jsFiddle by first getting the "Share full screen result" URL (from the Share menu) and then view the source of the full screen result to get the URL of the iframe used to display the result. For example, the "full screen result" URL, which still shows a minimal toolbar at the top: http://jsfiddle.net/w3dx/sspTY/embedded/...

You shouldn't use br elements for separating paragraphs. From the HTML5 specification: br elements must be used only for line breaks that are actually part of the content, as in poems or addresses. A paragraph should be enclosed in a p element. The div element doesn't add/change any meaning. At most it changes the styling of the content (via CSS; ...

There really is no way to do this as it stands right now. What I would suggest is adding a link to the Creative Commons license that you are using in the footer (or header), and that should be good enough.

Google hasn't made it publicly known what format they store Google Docs in at this time. The closest I can find to anything official is this post: We do not expose our native formats at this time Google Docs supports importing and exporting in a range of formats (including docx, odt, pdf and html), however they convert going each way to their internal ...

In HTML, the characters < and > are special (so are quotation marks in certain places). If you want these characters to appear, you'll need to encode them (as &lt; and &gt; respectively). The ampersand is used for encoding, and it follows that the ampersand is also a special character. If you want an actual ampersand to appear, you need to ...

The code the ribbon site provides lacks a </img> close tag. add it before </a> should make it display on your blogger.

Try wrapping your posts in a div tag, it won't affect the layout and I found that helps when WP tries to add characters to my posts

I can confirm that Gmail does allow you to send tables, but provide very limited editing support. What I would do is to copy the whole e-mail into an online HTML editor like TinyMCE and do the editing there. You can also copy it a local tool that supports HTML editing, like Word or Dreamweaver.

You can upload images in designer view. Than keep URL and use it in advanced view with your HTML. It's not as easy and sleek, but it works. Check details here. You can also use Flickr to load images. And edit them with Picnic. Cool features.

Google docs won't actually render HTML, or execute any code pasted into it. What you can do is view your HTML as a page in the browser, which will show: Copy it from the web page, then paste into your document - it will look like this: The question you referred to was for people who wanted to present their HTML code within the document with syntax ...

You need to use the google.script.run.myServerFunctionName() client side API. You will need to use that anyway, in order to send the form data, unless you are using a HTTPS GET or POST request to send the data somewhere. Apps Script documentation - google.script.run

So to start, you want to double each of the quotes inside of your HTML tags for it to show up properly and not cancel out: so class="p1" would be class=""p1"" then for for the the list of p1 elements , you can use regexreplace to surround your data with the tags instead of concatenation (its just a little cleaner in my opinion) So the regex for ...

There is no way to prevent Blogger from doing this: the Post-editor does not support all aspects of HTML, and so some unsupported elements that you add will be removed (e.g., <p> tags), while others (e.g., tables) will be kept even though there is no way to create them in Compose mode. I do not have a list of which HTML elements are and are not ...

you can try JessyInk - which is now part of Inkscape (opensource). There is an comparison or Prezi vs. JessyInk. You can try their showcase presentation - I put a copy of it on my Dropbox here. In discussion they also mentioned Sozi (also opensource) but I did not try it. :-)

Do you need it to be inline (display on in a page along with other content), or is it okay to be on a separate page? I would suggest saving your resume as a PDF (note, this is good practice in general) and ensuring that it looks good in Google's PDF previewer. You can then attach it to any page in Google sites and reference it by URL. If you need it to be ...

Probably, the way to go would be either to use the built-in facilities for editing tables in the Gmail interface (which are actually present, according to the answer by billc.cn), or try to copy the table by selectiing and pasting it into another editor (as suggested by the answer by billc.cn), or press button "show original" and copy the (unfortunately, ...

Once you get your Show original window up, your address bar will contain something like this: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=1234567890&view=om&th=1234abcd1234abcd Just change the bit that says view=om to view=lg. Push Enter, and bingo: it’s no longer plain text. Now save it as .html or as .pdf. Source: http://blog.brush.co.nz/2012/...

Copy and Paste works just fine. Find your desired license on CreativeCommons.org and highlight the entirety of the license (not the embed code). Copy the selection to the clipboard and switch to your desired document in Google Drive. Place your cursor where you want the license to go, preferably at the end of the document, and then Paste from clipboard. It ...

Have you ever wondered why Gmail asks you before showing images in emails? We did this to protect you from unknown senders who might try to use images to compromise the security of your computer or mobile device. But thanks to new improvements in how Gmail handles images, you’ll soon see all images displayed in your messages automatically across ...

This probably happens because <cite> is a custom HTML tag, while <sup> is a tag that was recognized by Tumblr. And Tumblr probably filters out all HTML tags it doesn't know, for security reasons. So whenever you switch view, Tumblr starts filtering out these parts of your text. I would suggest you use <span class='cite'>CITATION</span&...
