HOTMetal Pro 3.0
Make Your Characters Special
In HoTMetaL Pro, special characters are inserted using the Special Characters command. Others can be inserted by holding the Alt key and entering a number on the numeric keypad.
View Source Code
You can launch HoTMetaL PRO automatically when you select View Document Source in Netscape Navigator. Under Netscape's Options menu, choose General Preferences/Apps. At the View Source input line, use the Browse button to locate your copy of HoTMetaL PRO.
When you want an empty table cell to seem filled, put a nonbreaking space inside that cell. It's a special character that you insert by holding down the Alt key, then typing 0160 on the numeric keypad.
Scalable Graphic Rules
You can use graphics instead of horizontal rules in pages created
with HoTMetaL PRO, and still have them resize dynamically. The
program will insert a value in pixels for the height and width
attributes of an inline image. If you change the IMG tag so that
the width attribute equals 100 percent, the image will stretch
horizontally as the browser is resized.
