  1. @ danshafer i agree with your report. I had also found the error you noted and came here to investigate it. @davej The text between the <meter> and </meter> tags (i.e. 2 out of 10 in the demo) doesn't display. (not the fallback text) <meter value="2" min="0" max="10">2 out of 10</meter>
  2. Ok, thanks. I think I get it. The start param can be considered INCLUSIVE of itself and later chars, while the end param is EXCLUSIVE of itself and further chars. Thanks. Sorry to be pedantic. It's my CDO again!
  3. So the START param includes the named position, but the END position doesn't? It sounds a bit ambiguous to me.
  4. I have noticed that when the slice() method is used with negative index parameters, the first index counts the end of the string as -1, while the second counts it as 0. This is not noted in the W3C tutorial. Is this intended, or is it a bug? For example, if word="abcdefg" then slice.word(-5,-3) gives "cd" and not "cde" as I would expect.
  5. Nice one, callumacrae.I'd never heard of :before and :after or not or {first-child until this topic. You just opened some new windows for me with this example. Where do we find things like the not{:first-child and similar magic? I've never seen them in the several books or tutorials I've read.
  6. Ah, now I see it... the break is an "empty tag" which just does its thing, no ifs or buts, and you can't do much else with it, whereas a paragraph can be styled to do all sorts of things.(but the question remains, does paragraph, by default, leave a blank line, as W3Schools states? It doesn't on my machine).
  7. Then there is no real difference between their actions ? Neither of them gives a blank line (I think they used to before HTML5).
  8. The W3Schools pages say that the HTML <p> </p> set of tags give a line feed plus an empty line between paragraphs. I've tried on Firefox and IE and both of these act exactly the same for these tags as for a <br /> tag. Is there a difference?
  9. You can delete this entry, I made a boo-boo again, sorry.
  10. Okay, thanks, I just wondered. You're right of course, it's best left alone.
  11. Thanks Ingolme.Yes, I saw that it wasn't listed, but it does work... If you insert color=red or color="red" (or any other color) inside the hr tag it works.
  12. Nothing earth-shattering, just an observation really:The color attribute, I understood, is removed in HTML5. But one item, the <HR/> tag still supports it. I wonder if this is intended to remain, or if it was an oversight.
  13. Hi there. I'm Phil from Perth, Western AustraliaMy name's Philip (Phil) Taylor.I'm an old Pommie guy, but I live in Perth, Western Australia. I've been playing around with HTML for a while but would like to learn to "do it proper", which is why I'm here. I want to learn how to use HTML5 and CSS correctly, and then maybe Javascript.I enjoy reading the Forum comments, and I've found the Tutorials an immense help, so I guess I'm here for a while. Pets: A cat, Latte (who thinks he's a dog, but may be dyslexic because sometimes he thinks he's a god), and a dog, Pepper (who tries to fix Latte's dysl
