If you are creating your HTML in an editor and then "cut and pasting" the resulting HTML into the field, be sure you click the "Source" button before pasting. You should also make sure you do not include all of the HTML code from a stand alone page because it will not work correctly.

If you use hyperlinks in your HTML code, make sure you have quotes around the URL parameters so MyGradeBook can pop up new windows when they are clicked.

If you want to include graphics from other web servers, please make sure the graphics are coming from a server providing https:// (Secure Socket Layer) access. If you link to pages that are not using SSL, teachers, parents, and students in your group will be shown messages repeatedly telling them that some of the content is unsecured.

Please note that the following are some but not all of the types of activities that are not allowed your in your HTML.

· You cannot link to commercial sites unless it is for educational purposes.
