Thanks for the response and I completely agree with you that it is not
Seaside's place to teach HTML. What I am looking for is the Smalltalk
expressions used to create the HTML, i.e. the "receiver, message selector
and arguments". For example, to display a url in HTML you would type:
<a href="http://www.w3schools.com/">Visit W3Schools!</a>
but in Smalltalk you would type the following in a "rendering" method:
html anchor url: 'www.3schools.com'; with: 'Visit W3Schools!'.
Now, without using CSS, you are able to change font, font-size, style
etc. of the link above, but how is it done using Smalltalk
How, or where can I find information that will give me valid
"receiver, message selector and arguments"? I assume that the
"receiver" will always
I hope that clarifies my question(s)? If it is a matter of just
working your way through class libraries and comments (which ones?)
is what I will do. Just feels like there must be an easier way for
finding the information.
Thanks again in advance
