Note to readers: This document attempts to define all HTML attributes - not just those available for use on E2.
Please do not confuse this document with E2 HTML tags, E2 HTML, E2 HTML tags : Quick Start, or E2 FAQ: HTML.

I know this is a very long writeup, but it's a lot of information. I honestly don't expect anyone to read the whole thing, but feel free to use it as a reference. I have grouped the text into three separate sections, so in case you just want to skip to a section, look for the big headings. The sections are:

  • Attribute Categories
  • Default Values
  • Attribute Names

Attribute Categories

Just as HTML tags can be broken down into categories, the HTML attributes used in these tags can also be categorized. Attribute categories define the types of values that can be assigned to different attributes. All categories below specify related attributes in this group, and when applicable I have added "Valid Values" or "Common Values". "Valid Values" specify the only acceptalbe values for a group. While "Common Values" only specify values that are most often seen - other values may be acceptable.

Default Values

While web page authors do not have to specify all possible attributes for every HTML tag on their page, the web browser must have or use some value for each of the attributes to determine how to render the viewable sections of the page. In the cases where not all of the attributes are specified, default values are used as described below:

#FIXED

A fixed attribute cannot be changed. Whether or not the author places the attribute in the HTML element or not, the value must be the fixed value specified by the DTD. This is similar to a const in many programming languages.

#IMPLIED

An implied attribute is optional. The author does not have to specify or include this value in the HTML element. It is up to the web browser to determine what value to use by default for this missing attribute. This accounts for most of the differences in how pages look in different browsers.

#REQUIRED

A required attribute must be specified in the HTML element. Failure to include the attribute will cause the page not to validate correctly, and might cause an error in the browser. In other words, no default is actually provided - the author must give one.

Value

Sometimes a single value will be specified as the default. While similar to #IMPLIED, in this case the browser does not have an option, and must use this specific default value if the author does not specify one.


Attribute Names

Below is a listing of all the valid attributes for HTML 4.01. Because the same attribute name can be used in different HTML tags to mean different things, some attributes have more than one description.
