  1. as the guy above me said, practice is the key dont just read the tutorials and say "alright, i know that, lets move on"! Make your own files, try them, change the colours, try new stuff, etc. dain
  2. a dedicated server means you get a whole server for yourself, instead of shared hosting. It basicly means you have more control over everything, but "with great power comes great responsibilities" . I only recommend dedicated hosting if you're gonna use it for a company's website, otherwise its not worth all the money.ineedhosting.net seems nice :)dain
  3. I didn't see any made-up tags :S And the only difference i can see between IE and FF is that in IE the table doesnt have a black border.Dunno, seems fine to medain

    I woulsn't use photoshop for any website unless it's desing-oriented. here's why:useless in old broswers that dont support graphicuseless for users that CHOOSE not to show graphicsuseless for blind or visual impared people.cant change size of images depending on the size of the monitorvery dificult to edit, let alone debug. you'd have to change the whole thing for any minor changethere are a lot more reasons, those are just some.dain
  5. you need an editor if you wanna write a file in a special coding. ie: unicode, etc.and because color-coding helps a lot. dain
  6. this works: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN""http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"><HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"><TITLE>Test2</TITLE></HEAD><BODY><center><p>First Paragraph</p></center><HR SIZE="6" WIDTH="100%"><p>Second Paragraph</p></body></html> pen*
  7. What i did is I made two different CSS files, one with the code for Netscape and a second for IE, and put this in the html's <head>: <!--[if IE]><link rel="stylesheet" href="iestyle.css" type="text/css" /><![endif]--><![if !IE]><link rel="stylesheet" href="nsstyle.css" type="text/css" /><![endif]> dain

    if there's more than one bookmark in a paragraph, you cant use <p> or you'd separate the text. Why shouldn't <a> be used for bookmarking?dain

    try this: <a href="#estonian">See the text in Estonian</a><a id="estonian"><p>Tere! Minu nimi on Niina. Mina olen kakskummend neli aastat vana. </p></a> I always put something inside the anchor tag, and i changed the name attribute to id so its XHTML compatibledain

    Depends on how much photoshop you're gonna use in your website.The tool you're gonna use the most is "Slice".Here i'll post a tutorial on how to design websites with photoshop. Its in spanish, but i think you can figure it out by just looking at the screeshots:Basicly you slice a part of the image and asign a value to it. A value can be an action, a link, etc.If you still ned help after reading (or rather, looking at) that tutorial, post here and i'll translate it for you.dain
  13. it works, thanks, but it's not valid CSS, and I want it to be valid. Sorry i'm so strict about it.dain

    need help with ...

    Dont forget to close the <head> tag! It'd go in between </style> and <body>dain
  15. If you dont know much about internet security, I suggest you use a ready-made online shop, such as PayPal Merchant (I think that's what its called).http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_merchant-outsideThe thing with online shopping is that it has to be extra-secure, so no-one will be able to hack into the logs and steal the credict card numer and details. It'd probably take years to get to that level of coding.dain

    no, Blue, a .html cannot contain ANY php coding. Well, it can, but it wont do a thing.if you have php in a page, you have to use .php. see that even if you write pure HTML, with no php at ALL in a .php, it will work as if ti was a .html file.dain
  17. I'm using firefox, the latest evrsion.I'd be glad to help, i'm make an account on your forum right away.BTW: Are you aussie?pen*PS: Now it's centered
  18. I've used FP, Dreamweaver, Notedpad, and many other programs, but i think HTML-Kit is the best. It doesnt interfere with what you're doing (unlike Dreamweaver), it helps you with indentation and color-coding (unlike notepad) and it really works (unlike FP)Oh, and its free You can download it here: http://www.chami.com/html-kit/download/dain
  19. mmm why not? I thought you could download language packs from Invision's website...And I like the idea of translating the whole of W3Schools It goes with the WAI, doesnt it?If you need translators, I'm a native spanish speaker, just PM me or somethingdain
  20. well, for starters, the website is set for a 800x600 screen. I'm in a 1024x768, and it looks like this:Then, all the advertisemente part, its so far away at the bottom that normaly I wouldn't see it. If you want more popularity, you should put them on the right, or at least higher in the page.And one last thing, the color scheme is strictly blue, I would add some other colors to make it easier on the eyes (maybe purple, its up to you)But overall its looking great, congrats :)dainPS: the menu has a little problem; the color doesnt go back to the original when you mouse your mouse out of the link. It changes color, but it stays that way. I dont know if that's how its ment to be, but it looks like a bug or something.You're probably using onMouseOver to change the background of the link. If so, you shoudl add onMouseOut. But i recommend using CSS, like this: a:hover{ background: whatever; color: adifferentwhatever} That way it automatically goes back to the original colour when you move your mouse out
  21. there are some broken links. for example, in the hompage, there's a HOME link to /default.html, but the home of the page is index.htmldain
  22. Hi. As most of you probably know, its almost impossible to use the same CSS for every browser, so I had to make two, one for Netscape-based browsers, and a second one for IE-based browsers.That isnt too bad, but now I ran into another problem;I'm using this script to redirect the CSS depending on the browser: <![if !IE]> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ffstylesheet.css" /> <![endif]> <!--[if IE]> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iestylesheet.css" /> <![endif]--> It works perfectly on both browsers, but its not valid XHTML! So I change it to: <!--[if !IE]> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ffstylesheet.css" /> <![endif]--> <!--[if IE]> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="iestylesheet.css" /> <![endif]--> And now its perfectly valid, but it wont load ANY CSS in Netscape.What do you think I should do?Thanks, dain
