Quizzler 5 New
Version 5 of Quizzler has been completely
rewritten, and now supports certain HTML tags within the quiz,
allowing for lots of nice features such as formatted text,
symbols, tables, and embedded pictures This document discusses
those new features that require version 5 or later (some of
these features were introduced in version 5.01).
To take advantage of these new HTML tags, you
need to type them directly into your quiz question or answers.
For example, the <BR> tag inserts a line break, so your
quiz question might look like this:
This is a question that takes two lines.<BR>This is the second line.

We encourage you to experiment with various HTML tags.
You will find some are supported, and some are not. The following
is a list of some tags that we have tested.
||Insert a line break
||Make text between tags bold. Ex: <B>this is bold</B>
||Same as <b>
||Color the text. The numbers specify the red (first 2 digits),
green (3rd and 4th digits), and and blue components (last 2
digits) in hexidecimal. For example, this will make the text
bright red: <font color="#FF0000">red text</font>
||Underline text between tags
||Superscript the text between tags, like when squaring a number
||Subscript the text between tags, like in a chemcial formula.
||There are several tags needed to create tables, and as long
as your table is not too complex, Quizzler will support it.
Consult an HTML reference for details.
||Some special symbols are supported. Your results may vary
depending on the fonts installed on your system. Check
this list for some symbols that should work for you.
Using HTML tags inside your quiz, you have great flexibility
with pictures. They can be inside the question and the answers.
Here is a screen shot of pictures used
inside a question (the symbols in answers b and c are done with
little pictures). The example we gave earlier
of using HTML tags is the source for this picture quiz so you can
see how it was done. The files "question3.jpg", "answer3b.jpg",
and "question3c.jpg" must be located in the same folder
as the quiz.
If you create a quiz and link a picture to it using
the Picture button in Quizzler Maker, that picture will be displayed
at the bottom of the quiz.
Picture files must be in the JPEG file format (we
may support GIF in the future). Pictures can be any size on the
screen as long as the file size is under 64KBytes.
Some special symbols are supported. Your results may
vary depending on the fonts installed on your system. In general
the symbols with lower ASCII values will work.
