Re: The plight of widows & orphans

I've just devised a solution (of sorts) for this problem. In the example below, give each colum paragraph a different name (.para1, .para2 etc.) but the same properties (enough padding-left to cover...

Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

I've tried stripping width/height attributes from one of my illustration's html, & it worked just fine! And that's without any addition to the style sheet. Before applying the process globally, I'd...

Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

That's a good tip - of 100-200 images, I only have one that repeats, at a reduced size. It must be relying on the inline styling at the moment, to shrink it down. A lucky escape! (It may be easiest...

Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

That's a great link for the ampersands, so thanks! I like the longhand versions better than coded ones - with ¨ you can see what you're getting, rather than the all-too-clever #246 (for example)....

Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

Thanks! Yes, the site seems to work fine (so far), but it's always nice to be reassured. One thing I picked up from your replies is the space-forward slash at the end of tags <tag />.
I haven't used...

Re: Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

It's simply <!DOCTYPE html>, which I test first in WC3 Validator then in Html Tidy. The second one picks up a few things that Validator misses (empty <p> for example. Here's Tidy -

Html Tidy - rules too fussy?

A few warnings come up when I run my html through HtmlTidy, though Validator doesn't pick them up. Despite these 'errors', the site works OK as it is, but I'm checking here in case I'm missing...

Re: The plight of widows & orphans

Oh well, I'll just tolerate/avoid them. Though one just occurred, where a single word popped out in the middle, at the end of a justified column! Like a 'semi-detatched' orphan - I might keep this...

The plight of widows & orphans

Does anyone have any tips & tricks, to prevent words at the ends of paragraphs from straying to remote areas on the screen?

It happens, for instance, when an illustration is floated left, & text...

Re: Centering the page body on wider screens

Once again, meesa, that works a treat! It seems a definite dimension is needed for auto margins to work. A combination of elements with individual values (pixels, min-width, etc.) isn't enough...

Re: Centering the page body on wider screens

Thanks, meesa - works a treat.

Along the same lines, margin: auto; doesn't seem to centre anything within the page. I've managed to float illustrations (with or without captions) into centre-page,...

Centering the page body on wider screens

I want to put a maximum length to lines of text, to ensure readability. max-width: XXXXpx; will do this, in the body element of the style sheet. But the white space increases only to the right of...

Re: Validating HTML4 Strict

After fully validating a couple of pages, I now feel confident enough to leap straight into HTML5 for the remaining 18! So thanks for your help, & I'll mark this thread as 'closed'.

Re: Validating HTML4 Strict

I tried the quotes, but they didn't work. Nor did removing h3, rearranging the order of tags, etc. All very strange, since other links, in identical formats, immediately follow, & they satisfy 4.01...

Validating HTML4 Strict

On one page, the only error is the term 'target=_blank', in -

<div class="middle">
<h3><strong><a href="intro.htm" target=_blank>INTRODUCTION</a></strong></h3>
<hr></div>

Apparently, it is...

Re: Testing IE on a Mac

I'm bookmarking VirtualBox as we speak, & will look into Windows versions that apply. It would certainly be nice to have IE, to test at leisure on my Mac.
In my search, I came across a script that...

Re: Can hypertext links be split along their length?

Another possibility - maybe links, if hidden, won't show as errors in validaton. They do now, when visible (as does a Google search form from last century).
Just being picky...

Re: Can hypertext links be split along their length?

That link seems just the ticket! I'll tinker with 'break-all' & the rest, & see what happens. Also, it's good to find this cache of WC3 treasures - I had no idea.

Hidden links have possibilities,...

A problem occurs in my bibliography - a list of references, many with long URLs printed out in full. The lift is aligned left & occasionally there are illustrations floated right.

Re: Testing IE on a Mac

Good question, meesa. The answer is - a mere 1%. Digging further, this reduces to 2 lone viewers. I would still hate to confound them, so I will try to find screen shots for IE7 rendering when I...

Re: Testing IE on a Mac

Thanks, meesa.

Looking into my web stats, I find a few visitors go back as far as IE 7. Still, nowhere near as ancient as buggy v5.2! So I guess I'll s**** the latter as any realistic guide, &...

Testing IE on a Mac

Hello,

I'm renovating a web site from 1997 that commits all the usual sins (tables for layout, strings of &nbsp;, etc). Testing with various browsers involves using IE 5.2, the last version made...
