I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably can answer it..
Most of the writing comes from calls in your language files like in your catalog / includes / languages / english.php you will find.
Define('HEADER_TITLE_CREATE_ACCOUNT', 'Create an Account'); the part you change is Create an Account..
Anywhere in your store that this bit of text is called for by HEADER_TITLE_CREATE_ACCOUNT it will display the part at the end..
There are lots of these in the english.php (also for German & Spanish).
Some in the english.php will look like.
Define('TITLE', STORE_NAME); this type in drawn from the database, in this case you can change it in admin / configuration / my store >> store name..
On level down in your english folder there are copies of the files form the top level. index.php account.php. in here you will find lots of things you are able to change too.
Make a back up before you start, I would imagine you will break the files a few times!.
Beware of the ' ' ); types they mean something and will throw up an error if deleted by accident..
I struggled with this in the early days but found a very easy way to locate and replace text..
There are many php editors about but Crimson Editor is free and spyware free and has a very good facility for searching out text within php files..
So for example if you were looking to replace "Special Offers" with something else, using Crimson Editor you just click on Search > Find in files > Special Offers.
Once it finds the file or files containing the text you simply replace it, then upload the saved file in your usual way..
I appreciate your question refers to HTML but I also found it much easier to search for keywords that were close to areas where I wanted to change HTML coding and this made it very easy..
Hope that helps.

Nearly everey page in oscommerce has an equivalent page in the language folder. This also applies to the admin folder..
So, most of the text on your index page can be altered it the corresponding language page..
You need to add html code, such as <br> <p> </br> and things like that, to get your text looking proper...
Gotcha, Ok will look into this. Thank you for your help...
Links to your mates site:.
This can be added in catalog/includes/boxes/links.php.
You can edit this file with dreamweaver or use the adinistration section of your website..
Tools, filemanager, then go to the right directory and edit the links.php box to add the links in HTML language..
On you Verisign website the links box is not activated!!.
In catalog/includes/colomn_left.php or catalog/includes/colomn_right.php and the sentence "require(DIR_WS_BOXES'links.php');" somewhere under another similr sentence..
Would not use this method to edit files, it has been known to corrupt the files..
I have done a search and found nothing that I can understand. I am new to this all. I paid to have my Verisign site set-up and now am trying to figure some of the basics out. I know this is a stupid question but I am lost..
Where is the HTML code written? What folder. I cannot locate any HTML. Am trying to add a friends Verisign site to my links page and cannot figure it out. Also on my home page Shopping Cart is spelt wrong. How do I change this? Last but not least. Thank you for your time and help..
My Verisign site is www.hydrillagear.com..
Try looking in the /catalog directory..
The files all end in .php..
Normally text displayed on the screen is in the directory /includes/languages/english.php or a file deeper in the "tree"...
