1. With CSS:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. body 
  2. {
  3. background-image: url('somepicture.jpg')
  4. }
  5.  
2. Use an anchor tag:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="mailto:somebody@somebody.com">
  2. Send Mail</a>
  3.  
3. I would advise against using marquees:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <marquee>
  2. Hi There!
  3. </marquee>
  4.  
4.To make a picture a link wrap an anchor tag around the image tag:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <a href="somepage.htm"><img src="images/somepic.jpg" /></a>
  2.  
5.You can change the color of anchors (links)
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. a:link {color: #FF0000}     /* unvisited link */
  2. a:visited {color: #00FF00}  /* visited link */
  3. a:hover {color: #FF00FF}   /* mouse over link */
  4. a:active {color: #0000FF}   /* selected link */
  5.
