Advanced Editing and HTML

Google Sites does not require knowledge of HTML to use.  However, if you desire to do advanced edits on certain elements on your pages, you will have to work directly with the HTML code.  When in Editing Mode on a specific page, you'll notice an "<HTML>" button at the end of the toolbar.  Clicking this will give you access to the code of whichever page section you have selected.
