Remarks

The html element is a type of stimulus (like text, pictures, sound, videos, etc.) that can be displayed on the screen by trial. A given html element can consist of a set of HTML pages that can be selected randomly or in fixed sequence. The element also specifies the size and position of the html page on the screen.

The content of the HTML file can include dynamically evaluated expressions by inserting the expression into the HTML surrounded by <% and %>. For example, the IP address of the current computer could be reported in an HTML page by embedding <% computer.ipaddress.1 %> in the desired location in the page.

Examples

The following randomly selects from 3 html files and displays the page on the upper left quadrant of the screen.

<html profiles>
/ items = ("profile1.htm", "profile2.htm", "profile3.htm")
/ position = (0, 0)
/ size = (25%, 25%)
</html>
