Emailing a Saved Wordle Using URL

If you chose to save your wordle to the Wordle site please email the URL (web address) to me.
The URL will look something like this: http://www.wordle.net/show/wrdl/2697141/Dragon_Rider (this is the URL to my Dragon Rider Wordle)

Emailing a Saved Wordle using HTML Code
Another alternative to sending the URL or printing the Wordle file is to embed the HTML code provided on the saved wordle file page to the teacher. If you look at the bottom of your wordle page there will be a message that tells you to paste the supplied text onto your webpage. Just paste this into an email and send it to me.

Sample.
Following is the text I pasted to get the file shown below.

"<a href="http://www.wordle.net/show/wrdl/2697141/Dragon_Rider"
title="Wordle: Dragon Rider"><img
src="http://www.wordle.net/thumb/wrdl/2697141/Dragon_Rider"
alt="Wordle: Dragon Rider"
style="padding:4px;border:1px solid #ddd"></a>"

Wordle: Dragon Rider

HINT: I typed my text into Notepad so that if something went wrong in Wordle I wouldn' have to retype everything. Once the text was ready to use, I copied and pasted the text into Wordle. It was also useful when I decided to create the second Wordle.
