Re: We miss you!!

I agree. I'm a seasoned professional (snicker), so I generally lurk around and give advice where it might be useful. Every one in awhile I get this email, come back for a few days, and then disappear...

Re: Web Developer Toolbar?

Web Developer Toolbar makes my job much, much easier, but I can't believe nobody has mentioned Firebug (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1843), which serves as a great replacement for...

Re: Joomla!

I don't recommend Joomla on anyone. It is a decent CMS but there are better alternatives for that particular niche -- I use Drupal and WordPress depending on the complexity of the site and have never...

Re: Javascript Loading Question

Libraries like script.aculo.us (or FACE, or Lightbox, etc.) run off a core set of functions. At least, those I'm familiar with do, but that doesn't include SCU. The logic is sound: the library is...

Re: Forms

Two answers for your two-part question:

1) You can use CSS to style a form, just as you can for any other element.

2) There are plenty of free PHP/ASP scripts that can handle email forms....

Re: WIP - Need Help

I take it that scholarship options are what you refer to as 'db info'? I'm not a big fan of the arrow on the left, but it doesn't seem too complex right now. You've clearly embraced the Web 2.0...

Re: CSS Blockquote - Speechmark Images

Ahh. Thanks for clearing the confusion.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a simple, cross-browser option. For browsers that support full CSS2 selectors (i.e. Firefox, Opera), you can user...

Re: help with a text resizing issue

All of your CSS is set in relative width/height (% is relative, just like em and pt), if a width/height is set at all. Specifically, #header is expanding because the height is set by padding: 45px;....

Re: Img align bottom problem...

While a great article, aligning an image to the bottom of an element is simpler than that:

div.className {

Re: image replacement

sIFR (http://www.mikeindustries.com/sifr/) will do that. It uses Flash to replace the text with a custom font. The font can be loaded into the Flash, meaning you don't have to rely on the user to...

Re: CSS Tab Problems

Actually, no. CC's are HTML, so it should be more like:

<!--[if lt IE 6]>

I realize IRC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC) might be old-hat for some folks, but for me it's still alive and kicking. I frequent a few other techie forums and a few of them have dedicated IRC...

Re: CSS Tab Problems

The spacing issue can be fixed by switching the <li> to block, then floating it left. Inline elements shouldn't be used as block elements, especially when if you're expecting them to maintain a...

Overall, the style is incredibly trendy, which is a double-edged sword: you want to show you can handle popular techniques, but you don't want your site to become so trendy it blends in with the...

Re: page is good in IE but not firefox? very simple problem.

I don't know of any good 'beginner' guides to CSS, since I learned by experimentation. Hopefully somebody around here can suggest something, but overall: some elements (p, h1-h6, div, etc) are block...

Re: page is good in IE but not firefox? very simple problem.

Well, beyond my confusion on your stylesheet and markup, the problem you reference is due to <ul>. By default, <ul> (and <ol>, for that matter) has a top and bottom margin/padding. For some reason,...

Re: IE white flash

Actually, it's a well-known bug (http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200408/stop_ie_flicker/), but easily solved. The flicker occurs because IE tries to render the page before the stylesheet has...

Re: div impacting another div and spilling text!

The basic concept: floated elements relate to other elements in their alignment, similar to how an image with align="left" will flow with text that surrounds it. In fact, this example is probably the...

Re: Explorer: 1px (not borders) throws off floated div layout

Err. I'd recommend Transitional if in doubt, since somebody 'in doubt' is less likely to code strictly. Still, I'd agree with using Strict if the coder in question knows what that implies.

Re: div impacting another div and spilling text!

clear: both doesn't and shouldn't have any effect because there's nothing to clear: neither #contents or #black-bar are floated (the former nothing, the later position: relative). For this layout,...
