Default Using HTML Tag on Netscape Composer


I hope you could help me by solving this problem..

Here is an example:

"Always put a logout link on the page you are protecting.
Logout link :

<a href="/oss/admin/logout.php?logouturl=

Using HTML Tag on Netscape Composer - you only can copy and paste one line < blah blad code blad blah > and then repeat until you get it all on the webpage and working.

Obviously we muct use both < and > for the coding to work.. if you look at above you see 'logout' - it doen't have < or > embedded. But only > and < and it is not working.

The HTML Tag on Netscape could not verify it :-((((((( So how do I do it correctly without breaking the links?

I tried to test it on tryit HMLT editor and the code is working just fine .

Thank you for your time in advance :-)

I don't understand the question?

<a href="/oss/admin/logout.php?logouturl=www.futurika.com">Logout</a>
This link is formed correctly. When I cut and paste it into Netscape Composer it worked fine. There is nothing about this link that would cause it to render incorrectly on any version of NS.

When I created a link using NS Composer,
It made the link look like this in the source code:

<a href="/oss/admin/logout.php?logouturl=www.futurika.com">

But this is simply one of the many side effects of using a WYSIWYG over simply hand-coding all of your content.

When I enter in exactly what you have typed there into the source code,

<a href="/oss/admin/logout.php?logouturl=
Composer scruntches it back onto one line and inserts a special character after the assignment operator.
<a href="/oss/admin/logout.php?logouturl=%0Awww.futurika.com">

Then when I try to click the link, the 'logouturl' argument is blank. So you should keep all of that on one line as that special character is wreaking havoc.

Other than that, I'm not sure what you are trying to say, if that isn't what you are talking about then please elaborate a little more on your problem!
