    Ok, another question to add to the first 1. How would I specify a list of items. I know that I will list the items in a <li>item1</li>.
    But what must I encapsulate the <li> tags with?

    There're two types of lists, ordered (1, 2, 3 etc.) and unordered (which use bullet points.)

    <ul>
    <li>Item 1</li>
    <li>Item 2</li>
    </ul>

    or

    <ol>
    <li>Item 1</li>
    <li>Item 2</li>
    </ol>

    Man, Im full of crap little questions today!

    How do I make plain text act like a link, but without using <a href=""></a> tags?

    The reason for this is, I have a list of items. If the user clicks on the item, a script displays info next to it. But I want the list items to look like normal links. Does it make sense?

    <b> - this is a font style element
    Rendering of font style elements depends on the user agent. The following is an informative description only.
    <strong> - is a phrase element
    Phrase elements add structural information to text fragments.
    you can make your own conclusion out of that chinese seriously... use the one you want and stick to it

    don't quite understand this one...

    you can underline text!?
    HTML Code:
    <span style="text-decoration: underline;">underline text</span>

    Think about it. A normal link also has a hover state. So thats what Im trying to achieve. A piece of text, that looks and behaves like an <a href=""></a>. I cant use an <a> tag because of the script.

    i could be wrong but doesn't the :hover state only works for links in all browsers, except IE, it can be applied to anything?

    so... i guess the answer is no !?
