  • Creating an email link in HTML

    I'm trying to convert some type within my page into an email link.
    I have the code but it's not working.
    I've tried taking the code and type out of it's original place and putting it on it's own in a new document. And it works.
    So I'm thinking the reason why it's not working may have something to do with it being within a class i have created when styling the page.
    Any idea why this is???

    Just incase you need it, here's the code;

    email: <a href=" e Your Site Information"></a>

    Thanks, Tom

      The code as you've written it here is correct. Whatever the problem is, it must be somewhere else. Incorrectly nested tags or missing out the closing > on a tag could possibly cause it.

        just gone through the code and there is nothing missing.
        However, I've noticed that when i remove the class from it, it works. But obviously it isn't displayed how i want it to be.
        Any idea why this may be happening?
        Surely it has something to do with the class?

              haha, well I don't know why this worked, but I just removed the class that was applied to the link, and the link then worked. Not sure why this worked but it did

                That makes no sense as the style has nothing to do with the functionality. do you mind posting your style?

                  Honestly, I wouldn't do it at all. Beveled, 3-D typography is sort of, well, yucky.

                  Anyway, yes, it's possible in Illustrator, but would require complicated and difficult blends. There...

                  Heaven forbid Adobe Bevel and Extrude give you a classic Roman profile for a letter form.
                  Unless there is a plugin out there that gives additional profiles, getting that effect is going to require...

                  Reply to Alternative to offset for metallic printing ?
                  We have a digital printer (fuji xerox Color 1000i) that prints silver and gold metallic toner. It's a lot cheaper than offset, especially for small runs and even one offs.
