  1. A slight correction of the CSS selector: '#nav ul' would get all un-ordered lists inside of any elements that have an id of 'nav'. 'ul.nav' gets any un-ordered lists with a class of 'nav'.And by the way, if you wanted a horizontal menu, just add this CSS block:.nav li {display: inline;margin-left: 2.5px;margin-right: 2.5px;}'display: inline' changes the display of each list item so that it is on one line (like a <span> tag). The margins are just to make it look better by spacing each item a little bit.

    Wow, didn't know that you could use single qoutes in XHTML. And I didn't know that single qoutes were faster. Thanks for the info.
  3. I prefer video training to books. An awesome provider of such things is lynda.com (over 45,000 videos I think)As for books, I can't really say; I've only just started reading books for learning, lol.And for your question of favourite languages, PHP for sure.
  4. G'day everyone. Thought I'd say an actual hello in this thread.My name's Michael, and I come from NSW, Australia. I started getting into web development a few months ago, thanks to finding w3Schools. I started with the HTML tutorial, then did a lot of the CSS and JavaScript tutorials, some of the PHP and SQL tutorials etc. I'm now doing a lot of training to do with Adobe programs like Flash, Dreamweaver and Illustrator. I'd just like to thank w3Schools for giving me a start in the world of technology, beyond just using Windows and knowing a little HTML.Anyway, hope I can be of some use around here.
  5. Dreamweaver for sure. That's because it's soooo much more than a text editor, expensive though.I also use Notepad for when I need to learn, since Dreamweaver makes it easy.
  6. To make something start further up the timeline you need to using some ActionScript code.gotoAndPlay(53);Replace the 53 with whatever frame number or frame name you want it to go to. If you use frame names remember to enclose the name in quotation marks like this: "circle"Not to sure what you mean by "images" or circles and squares, I need a bit more context. If you're seeing flashing images all over the place it may be because of bad ActionScript code, that happens, but Flash would've told you if that were the case.
  7. The reason it won't roll out is you need to add an event listener and function for the mouse going out (or rolling off). Otherwise it will just stay in the roll over state.lingerie_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, onOut);function onOut(e:MouseEvent):void{lingerie_btn.gotoAndStop("up"); // Or whatever frame you want}I can't quite work out why it wouldn't be doing anything when you click. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that you're using the gotoAndPlay method?
