  1. Let's start with this. Is your goal to have a vertical menu list? "tabber" is an empty class. Why put in the <h> tags and then hide them? Further, this is an incorrect use of an <h> tab. You have a lot of CSS geared to a <ul> list, but I don't see any. Sorry, but this isn't making any sense to me. <div class="tabber"> <div class="tabbertab"> <h2>Tab 1</h2> <p style="margin-left:25px;">Tab 1 content.</p> </div> <div class="tabbertab"> <h2>Tab 2</h2> <p>Tab 2 content.</p> </div> &l
  2. *** no HTML in this file ***body,div {margin: 0; padding: 0px}#nav {float: left; width: 100px; border: none; padding: 1em}#ads {float: right; width: 100px; border: none; padding: 1em}#txt {margin-left: 550px; margin-right: 250px text-color: black; text-align: left; padding: 3px}#ftr {clear: both}#hdr {background: #ffffcc; text-align: center}#ftr {background: clear}#nav {background: clear}#txt {background: yellow}.a:visited {color: black; text-color: yellow}.ext {padding: 4px; border:1px solid black; margin: 4px; background: yellow}h1 {font-family: arial; color:#006600; }h2 {font-family:Garamon
  3. Take the center and img out of the head section. They go in the body section.
  4. Contact your ISP. Make sure PHP is on from their end.
  5. Fix the three errors. Your DOCTYPE looks like it is missing stuff. 90% of your css is inline. Move it to the header css area.Vis-a-vis IE. If you are in IE, reduce the font size. Use either conditional statements or the Tan Hack. Dump the nested tables as it slows things down and makes it harder to maintain. Maintenance is the biggest part of any computer project - build for it.You have: I use: I've taken your code and reformatted the top half of it so you can judge if you would rather work with formatted code (pretty print) or what you originally had:<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C/
  6. You've seen those "Jump to top of page" things, right? One thing they can jump to is a named anchor. But that requires you to add one. They can also jump to an ID which would require it to be unique so the page would know where to jump to.You also gain some clarity so when you see it in the css, you know it applies to one and only one place on the page.
  7. An "id" is a property that most things have. A <div id="xxx"> or a <p id="yyy"> or a <img id="zzz"> are all valid. It is a way to uniquely identify something. You can apply styles to an "id" in css like #xxx {stuff;} or #yyy {other stuff;}.
  8. If you use a program like TextPad you can update many files automatically. You might want to consider SillyBilly's idea of changing them to an include which can be inserted if you have PHP on your server.
  9. It is not the DOCTYPE. The DOCTYPE must be the first thing on the page.
  10. When you use "id"s, you must have a unique one for every one you use. Classes can be reused. If there is common features, use classes and reduce the size of the css. That will allow for quicker development.
  11. Table are good and vital for web pages. Too bad they are used for the wrong purpose so often. And used incorrectly at that - they never seem to have accessibility tags included.What I would do is stress the purpose of tables in the tutorial and quick link to the alternative and better use of positional placement.Of course, if I were in charge, I'd have more moderation here. I run a forum where I always have 3-4 active people daily and another 3-4 who come in on a less frequent basis. I see a lot of you are here anyway, they should "promote" a couple of regulars who have demonstrated enough
  12. I've heard of IE emulators, but you might consider a partial solution.www.browsershots.org will accept your URL and echo back what your page would look like in more browsers than you can shake a stick at. You don't get the functionality, but you do get the look and feel.
  13. Two divs, one floated left, one not, but with a margin equal to the width of the floated one.
  14. The default margins and padding are doing you in. Add the universal reset to the top of your css and the spacing goes away. At least it did for my FF3.* {margin:0; padding:0;}
