BCN Specific Reference Materials

General Reference Material

  • Redirecting URL's
    • Modify this sample HTML file to redirect the browser to a new URL. You can get a copy of it via "File/Save as..." after loading it.
      The key to the redirection lies in this command:
      <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=">

      To keep search engines from sending folks to the old site, you should also add the following:

      You should also locate other sites linking to the old BCN site and let them know the site has moved. Google can search for these sites. In the google search field, type "link:" followed by the site and path (no http://). For example, "".

      For an explanation and listing of the META tag attributes, look at HTML Meta Tags

    • Getting Started  A tutorial provided by the Ontario Prevention Clearinghouse (Canada) for Health Oriented Clients. The principles are the same for all WEB users.

    • Unix -- Basic Unix commands that will help you work with files on the BCN server.

    Web Page Design Considerations

    HTML Tools

    • HTML Editors

    • Dr. HTML Dr. HTML will catch coding errors that Netscape will accommodate, but other browsers will not. Due to the fact that BCN is accessed by many browsers, using this tool is a necessary step in BCN's development process
    • WWW Consortium Validator
      • This is an easy-to-use HTML validation service based on an SGML parser. It checks HTML documents for compliance with W3C HTML Recommendations and other HTML standards.
      • To use the W3C HTML 4.0 Recommendation, start your document with one of the following doctype declarations:
        • <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN" "">
        • <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "">
        • <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Frameset//EN" "">
    • Bobby is an HTML checker that tells you what's not compatible with a selection of Web browsers. For more information, look at: " BOBBYHOW "
