Reading and Writing HTML with Small Basic
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a rich text format used in the internet. You can see the rendered text with a browser. A HTML file is a kind of text file. So Small Basic can read and write them. We can use
Network.GetWebPageContents() operation to read HTML from the internet. A Simple HTML code is like:
<html> <body> <h1>HTML with Small Basic</h1> HTML is a rich text format. </body> </html>
<xxx> is called a tag. For example
<h1> is a header tag. I wrote some programs reading or writing HTML files.
I introduced XML Parser for Small Basic Help last month. This tool reads Small Basic help file and writes HTML code for TechNet Wiki.
MSDN Blog Article List is a Small Basic program to read a MSDN blog (written in HTML) and write an article list as a HTML file.
