HTML help, tricks, tutorials and tips for building your auction page or your own website.

Please feel free to try out the tricks and tips on this page. If you have a suggestion I would be glad to hear it. I also have some of my auction templates listed below. These templates are free to use if you are a member of DOUA. If you are not a DOUA member please ask me first before using any of my templates. I will be happy to assist you in modifying these to fit your auctions. The background images on the templates are all from free image sites so feel free to use them as you see fit. If you were to find an image on  this or any of my sites that is not in the public domain please let me know right away and I will remove it from this site.
All other images on the site to include demo images and images on any of my other sites belong to me personally. Please ask before using any of my personal images on your web site or in your auctions

ONE VERY IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER WHENEVER WORKING ON A TEMPLATE IS TO SAVE BEFORE, DURING AS WELL AS AFTER. THIS WILL SAVE YOU A LOT OF HEARTACHE. NOT SAVING AS YOU MAKE CHANGES CAN CAUSE YOU TO HAVE TO START ALL OVER FROM THE BEGINNING.
