  1. The silence is driving me nuts. Is anyone still alive on the forums? I see many people looked at the post but nothing.... Anyways I fixed the problem I had. Here is the new code. Still bare bones none of the buttons work as I haven't got that far. But so far what do you think of the design and coding? HTML is valid Feel free to give the page a tear down and offer comments on improvements Thanks for helping a budding coder out. home.css index.html
  2. Hello all, this is my first attempt at a real website to be posted in the future. It's at it's very basic stages. I've noticed a problem with the layout that needs fixing with Chrome, Firefox, and IE9. When the page is zoomed in or out, the layout shifts. How do I prevent this? HTML5 CODE: (Passes the W3C Validator) <!DOCTYPE html> <head> <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> <meta name="author" content="Joseph Maxwell Davies" /> <meta name="keywords" content="nomad, video, siblings, nomadic siblings, torah, teachings, article
  3. Oh I see, useful information here, will need to keep in mind if ever faced with similar problem.Good coding
  4. haven't tried it myself, but have heard of opacity: 50%; would this work?
  5. I am new in the foray into HTML and am attempting to create a page, but as far as the page goes I always have issues with my navigation barIs this a result of bad coding and markup? My HTML5 does validate, so does my CSS. When I set the li to float left to create a vertical bar the entire bar dissapears off the screen not to be found anywhere...HTML5 code: <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title>Homepage</title> <meta name="description" content="fromthericefields, blog, home" /> <meta nam
  6. I posted the whole thing as I didn't know which part wasn't functioning correctly. But thanks to Ingolme I might have the problemsolved, but have to wait for the computer to be available to tweak my code a bit. You're right I'd never thought about the text resizing.I'd better make sure I remember for the future. Looks like the computer is free. Whoops..... Spoke too soon... eh!Thanks for your input (both of you) cheers!
  7. Hi, I'm starting out with HTML5/XHTML and CSS/CSS3 and am soon getting around to JavaScript. I have a basic structure of my website that I've been making to practice improving my skills. Building it, it works on Firefox (No support for Chrome or IE9 yet, haven't got around to that) until I zoom in and out, then it breaks. Most speficially the Navagation bar... What am I doing wrong? Here is the HTML <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en"><head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title>Home</title> <meta name="description" content="" /> <meta name="author" con
  8. background-color: grey; for main background colorbackground-image: url(bgimage.png); for background imageAs for navagation bar there should be plenty of references in w3c schools website and other sites showcasing various examples.
  9. Can't you use the embed tag code provided by YouTube or use the object tag? Or perhaps the new video tag in HTML5?
  10. Looking at the list, I have no need to worry as I already use CSS for styling and follow Strict XHTML guidelines in my code.Thanks for the reference list, will come in handy as I learn.
  11. Is it ok to go ahead and use the new doctype for HTML5 eventhough I am not using any of the new tags, but am basically using XHTML Strict until perhaps in the future I may use some of the tags and features. Is this acceptable? So far everything validates in the validator, but wonder if this is good practice to use a HTML5 doctype where there is no HTML5 markup in the source code.
