  1. Hi folks, it's my first post here and while I have been learning a lot from w3schools in the past (compliments!!), I am just about to familiarize myself with w3.css. For a start, I choose the architects template as basis for a project portfolio as joiner and just started to replace pictures etc. from the original template with my own stuff. However, I would like to use the HTML5 semantic layout (header, footer, aside...) as much as possible and the w3css tutorial also states that it's possible because the w3-* classes can be applied to whichever HTML element. So I tried to rewrite the images with top-left captions in the project section of the template into <figure> + <figcaption> elements, as semantically this is exactly what happens on the page. However doing so, the figure-element has much bigger margins/paddings as before, thus breatking the multicolumn-layout - please see https://portfolio.sven-goettner.de - the 4 pics with green background are created using my new semantic markup, while the 4 pics below with the red background are the original <div>-only code from the template. The difference is obvious... I tried various combinations of which original <div>-tag to change into the respective semantic counterparts, but none was able to produce the original looks. Could you please redirect me to a resource where I can learn how to fix this or tell me straight away what I am doing wrong? Thank you very much for your support!

Ramanujan-</h3></p> <p id="para2"> Born in South India, Ramanujan was a promising student, winning academic prizes in high school. But at age 16 his life took a decisive turn after he obtained a book titled A Synopsis of Elementary Results in Pure and Applied Mathematics. The book was simply a compilation of thousands of mathematical results, most set down with little or no indication of proof. It was in no sense a mathematical classic; rather, it was written as an aid to coaching English mathematics students facing the notoriously difficult Tripos examination, which involved a great deal of wholesale memorization. But in Ramanujan it inspired a burst of feverish mathematical activity, as he worked through the book's results and beyond. Unfortunately, his total immersion in mathematics was disastrous for Ramanujan's academic career: ignoring all his other subjects, he repeatedly failed his college exams.As a college dropout from a poor family, Ramanujan's position was precarious. He lived off the charity of friends, filling notebooks with mathematical discoveries and seeking patrons to support his work. Finally he met with modest success when the Indian mathematician Ramachandra Rao provided him with first a modest subsidy, and later a clerkship at the Madras Port Trust. During this period Ramanujan had his first paper published, a 17-page work on Bernoulli numbers that appeared in 1911 in the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society. Still no one was quite sure if Ramanujan was a real genius or a crank. With the encouragement of friends, he wrote to mathematicians in Cambridge seeking validation of his work. Twice he wrote with no response; on the third try, he found Hardy.<br>Hardy wrote enthusiastically back to Ramanujan, and Hardy's stamp of approval improved Ramanujan's status almost immediately. Ramanujan was named a research scholar at the University of Madras, receiving double his clerk's salary and required only to submit quarterly reports on his work. But Hardy was determined that Ramanujan be brought to England. Ramanujan's mother resisted at first--high-caste Indians shunned travel to foreign lands--but finally gave in, ostensibly after a vision. In March 1914, Ramanujan boarded a steamer for England. Ramanujan's arrival at Cambridge was the beginning of a very successful five-year collaboration with Hardy. In some ways the two made an odd pair: Hardy was a great exponent of rigor in analysis, while Ramanujan's results were (as Hardy put it) <em>"arrived at by a process of mingled argument, intuition, and induction, of which he was entirely unable to give any coherent account".</em> Hardy did his best to fill in the gaps in Ramanujan's education without discouraging him. He was amazed by Ramanujan's uncanny formal intuition in manipulating infinite series, continued fractions, and the like. <br><br> </p> <br> <blockquote> I have never met his equal, and can compare him only with Euler or Jacobi." <br> <span>-Hardy</span> </blockquote> <p id="foot">Read more about <em>S.

  3. I'm new to forum, a neophyte when it comes to HTML and CSS, brought up via Frontpage with all its "foibles". Trying desperately to fix my website and make it all HTML5 and CSS3 valid. I'm going crazy trying to insert images in text (floating right or left) with a caption underneath. In the old days of tables I could do this in 5 seconds. So far everything I've tried just doesn't work. To begin clean I created the most simple of test programs with one photo, one caption, no overhead crap, no style sheets. Here is the code: <figure> <img alt="" src="literature/worktales/images/brunswickMineShotcrete.jpg" style="float:right"/> <figcaption>Shotcrete</figcaption> </figure> The results are here: www.raiderracing.com/test.htm. I did lots of research on this site and others and tried different scenarios and none worked. I'm using Expressions Web 4 for editing, and latest MS Edge or Google Chrome for browsers. I tried this on the W3C "Tryit" page and floating the figure left or right leaves the caption where it is. Using just <img alt="" src="literature/worktales/images/brunswickMineShotcrete.jpg" style="float:right"/>shotcrete achieves the same thing with 4 fewer commands. So, bottom line: how do I float photos left and right in text, and put a caption underneath?

    style tag <figure>

    hello, i don't find a any topic about this, so i'm start this one. i'm using a tag figure and the figcaption, but i have multiple imagens with a legend each one. when i do this the images apears one after another in a second line and i like to do all in same line. what i need to change? apologize my english i don't write very well, and what i know about code i learn alone
  5. I have been trying to write a photo gallery with text accompanying it at the bottom. Photos and text will change with each click. I tried using an input tag as child of form tag with javascript code and it worked. But the input tag is interactive and allows only one line. By the way, it doesn't respect the <a> tag for crediting the photos. Therefore, I have been trying my hands on the figure element which will take the image tag and figcaption tag for photo and photo description. But, I cannot write the javascript. can anyone show me how? I wonder why the input tag is easy but figure and figcaption is difficult? Thanks
