  1. I understand. Typing everything in the text editor will bring the inconvenience of having, then, to manually add the tags. I'd like a more semi-automated process What about moving to a CMS? If then, which one?
  2. Well, my site was originally created to be presented to my classmates, but it quickly spread to all the city, and some other cities in my country. I often get thanks and feedback by e-mail. And, nevertheless, I always wanted a GOOD thing, because I like perfection, as much as I can get What would you recommend for me to do the typing? I need Word because of the spellchecking features. I also do the rich-text formatting such as bold, italics, links, bulleted and numbered lists, and so on. This is all pasted onto the WYSIWYG editor. Speaking of them, you said Are there no exceptions? Not even Dreamweaver, WYSIWYG Web Builder 8, KompoZer itself, Microsoft Expression Web??
  3. Thanks for your opínion, but I'm still thinking of changing the way things are created... That tables I use a lot are only in the index page, but the main content are the class notes you access by clicking any of those links in the very-populated table. Take a look, for instance, at this: http://notasdeaula.org/dir8/direito_administrativo2_14-09-11.html Don't mind about the language, just have in mind the ammount of text and the way it is done. If you take a look at the source, you'll see a lot of unnecessary html code...
  4. Hello! There isn't exactly a specific forum for this question, so HTML is the most approximate. I have a site in which I focus on content. I have basic html and css knowledge, so I designed a mínimalistic layout with basic text and tables. Almost zero images, because they take precious deciseconds to load. What it is? A class notes site, where I copy (type in my laptop) everything (yes, everything, not a summary) my teachers at college say, then I publish to share with my friends and the world. Check out http://notasdeaula.org, however it's in Portuguese. I use Microsoft Word to do the typing, specially because of its spellchecking capabilities and rich text format. Anyway, it is content that really needs formatting, so parts of the text get bold, italics and more. After the review I copy and paste onto KompoZer, the WYSIWYG editor, then I make the final adjustments to have it in HTML. Almost everything I do is semi-automatic. No HTML tags editing in the code, since I don't have time for it (I already stay up to 11 hours everyday to review the spoken text into a readable text). So I end up with a html file with a lousy code, loaded with junk tags. This is because Word. Someone suggested I moved to WordPress or another CMS, but I've also been told: "never ever paste a Word document into the text field in a blogging interface". The questions:- Do I really need to change my method, or the junk HTML is not a real issue?- If you're a designer who focus on content instead of the design and layout itself, what would be your "MO"; how would you deal with a lot of (formated) text? Think of an average of 35,000 characters inside a Word document everyday.- I've seen people pasting the text inside a plain text editor, then adventuring themselves writing the html tags so they'll have a 'clean code'. How to avoid that? Changing the WYSIWYG editor? KompoZer seems fine!- What would you change in this two simple pages? http://notasdeaula.org and http://notasdeaula.o...r_01-11-11.html ?
  5. Not an option because the table would depend on the text lenght/ammount of content... Thats unfortunately not something i can implement quickly... I'm not exactly a webdesigner Ok, I know this doesn't demand a lot, but still there is a study do be made in order to make my site notasdeaula.org maintainable in that way... :)Any other suggestions?
  6. Hi HTML folks!I have a very noobie question: my site is still old-fashioned table-based html-css constructed so I insert the text content inside a central table, like you see in here:páginaBut, when printing, take a look at what happens:As you can see, the vertical side-borders come to a sudden end and there is no bottom border in the previous page, while there is no top border in the next, like there was only one tableframe for the text to lie inside. Actually, that's correct, since the text is enclosed by a <table></table>, but I don't want that ugly phenomenon to take place... Is there a solution?Just another question: that screenshot was taken in Opera. Also, there is a background image that fills the entire page, but when you see the print preview above, only the area enclosed by the table will be filled with the background pattern, and disalignedly. How to fix?Thanks in advance.1
  7. Hi!I'd like to ask about printing areas in a html document.Lets say I have this page here:http://notasdeaula.org/teste3As you can see, there is a mother 1-cell table which encloses all the content in that page.To set some elements not to appear in a printed version of that page, I setup a parallel CSS stylesheet with the following... .NonPrintable, #Menu, #Footer{ display: none;} ...and did the proper linking at the <head> of the html... <meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type"><title>Página de testes</title><link href="PrintStyle.css" rel=" stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print"><style type="text/css"> ... so that I could get rid of the upper menu when printing.I'd like to do two things:1 - get rid of the background image when printing too, but in this case I don't know how to implement: <body style="background-image: url(blog_fundo.jpg); font-family: Georgia,'Times New Roman',Times,serif;"> and2 - get rid of everything beyond the main-greater table. If you take that page and have a print preview, then you'll see there is a rather big área in the side margins unused, which would have us waste a lot of paper, but that space is necessary when displaying the page on-screen.Thanks for attention!
  8. There is already no padding in the cells as far as I know. The space between the top and text of the cell with large amount of text in it is because of the own amount of text compared to the amount of text of the adjacent cell. it what? Sorry for not undestanding... I created the codes you told me in post #6... what next? Thanks.
  9. Thanks guys and sorry for late response.So, I get almost all of it, and created this sample: http://notasdeaula.org/hoverbox.htmlBut, as you can see, only the background of the link text is coloured when hovered, not the entire table cell. How to change that?
  10. I didn't get how this helps. This is not about spacing or padding... just about linking and making the cells change appearance when hovered... or am I mistaken (very possible).
  11. That's what I've been trying! I even started another topic to ask that before I saw your post. It's in here:http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=26659No, the boxes are not images, but I'd like the cells to become links, not only the texts within them. Not sure if I understood you. "Primeiro semestre" means "First semester", and that's the section where I put the class content of the 1st semester of my law school.
  12. The entire cell! :)How do I do it? The bad thing is that I can't quickly find an example to show you, but I think its easy to get the idea
  13. HiThis is my simple, but loved website: http://notasdeaula.orgIn there, you can see that everthing is based on tables. On the header, we can see some links, such as the "ajuda", "segundo semestre", and so on. Also, in the main table, the one with five colums, we see more links over text inside the cells.What I would like to do, but doesn't know the best way to do without going to javascript and extra files (I really want it to be all in html or CSS), is to make the whole cells clickable, but adding a hover property. Also, on hover, i`d like to have it change colors, so that the users will know that`s clickable more quickly. for example, the first row of the main cell contains links too, with important content, but they confuse it by thinking it`s just the column title.What do you suggest?Thanks a lot.
  14. Ok but how/what exactly should I put inside the @media_print? for example, in the template style.css filem we see the reference to the menu: /* Menu */#menu { float: left; height: 44px;}#menu ul { margin: 0; padding: 5px; list-style: none; line-height: normal;}#menu li { height: 44px; display: block; float: left; padding: 12px 25px 0px 25px; background: url(images/img04.jpg) no-repeat right 8px;}#menu a { display: block; float: left; text-decoration: none; font: 12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #FFFFFF;}#menu a:hover { text-decoration: underline; }#menu .current_page_item { margin: 0px; color: #FFFFFF;} And the sidebar: /* Sidebar */#sidebar { float: left; width: 250px; }#sidebar ul { margin: 0px; padding: 0; list-style: none; line-height: normal;}#sidebar li { margin-bottom: 30px; padding: 0 0 5px 0px; background: url(images/img07.jpg) repeat-x left top;}#sidebar li ul { line-height: 150%; background: none;}#sidebar li li { margin: 0; padding: 3px 20px; background: none;}#sidebar p { margin: 0; padding: 0 15px;}#sidebar h2 { height: 33px; margin: 0 0 20px 0px; padding: 15px 0px 0px 20px; background: url(images/img06.jpg) repeat-x left top; text-transform: uppercase; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; font-weight: bold; color: #FFFFFF;}#sidebar p { line-height: 200%; padding-bottom: 20px;}#sidebar a {} which are two of the things I'd like to get rid off in the printed page. So what do I do, how I make the integration of these two styles, the old (the regular style.css) and the one containing the @media_print {} ?
  15. Hi folks! A dude in another topic introduced me to the Free CSS Templates and I particularly liked reckoning. I'd like to take it as base template for my simple site, although I'll modify to give a little originality :)The problem is: it's a school/study site, in which I include the classes we already had and share with my friends. Since the base content is text, they like printing a lot, but that layout harms the printing. The relevant part, which they and myself would like to see in a paper is the one delimited by the <div id="content"> section.Is there a way to prevent other sections, such as the logo and sidebar to appear in the printing?Thanks!
