heitml and HTML
Have you ever looked at the source code of a heitml page created by RADpage? If so, you've probably noticed that it's not at all complicated, especially if you're already familiar with HTML. In fact, a heitml page looks very much like an HTML page with additional tags .
Components show up as new HTML (or XML) tags. So the source code for a counter, for example, might look like this:
If you select a component in RADpage and then click on the Source button you can see (and edit) the heitml source code for that component.
You can look at the source code of an entire page by selecting Source in the middle select box of the RADpage Component Editor. It will show the code in your browser and mark all heitml tags in blue. You can then click on a line number in order to modify that portion of the source text.
Alternatively, you can examine or change the source code with any text editor, and many WYSIWYG editors can be used as well.
In all cases, heitml programming implies that you are working at the source code level, manipulating individual elements. This gives you a much finer degree of control over those elements, but later, when a page begins to take shape, you can always return to RADpage to once again work at a higher level.
