HTML tag attributes for a Domino server

The HTML tab appears on many properties boxes. If you are designing a Web application and are using HTML 4.0, the HTML tab lets you apply core attributes that are common to a number of objects, such as Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), easily. Domino® incorporates the values of these attributes in the HTML that it creates at runtime. When you are using the HTML tag attributes, remember:

  • The HTML must be ASCII characters.
  • Do not place quotation marks around the attributes, except around the attributes you use in the Other box.
  • The "Other" attribute needs quotation marks, as shown in the example that follows.

HTML tag attributes

Description

Name/ID

References an object using JavaScript™ or CSS. For example, the object could be

ID = ZipCode

Class

Applies a CSS class for a defined object. For example, if the object's name is ZipCode, the class could be Numeric. CSS styles are defined in the HTML Head Content event for a form or page.

Style

Applies a specific CSS style to an object using in-line CSS. For example, if the object's name is ZipCode, the class is Numeric, the style could be font-size:10pt. If you have more then one value, separate them with a semi-colon; for example, font-size:10pt; color:blue.

Title

Explorer 4.x and later provides the user with a tip or prompt. For example, if the object's name is ZipCode, the class is Numeric, the title could be Enter your Zip Code. The title displays differently on different browsers.

Other

Adds other HTML tag attributes, and must be written as pure HTML code. For example, instead of writing ZipCode in the Name/ID box, you write ID="ZipCode" in the "Other" box.
