    monitor issue

    Nothing to do with hardware video alpha, it's the colour calibration settings profile that basically makes sure that the colours, brightness, gamma, contrast appear correctly on that monitor. Any visual input or output device, such as monitors, printers and scanners should be calibrated so that the images appear the same on each device and on other peoples' equipment. The monitor should come with it's own calibration software and Adobe ships its own with its software "Adobe Gamma" I think. Run the saftware and follow its instructions.

    Background Image Not Showing

    Did you include the image within the email as an attachment? Or, more preferably, you should place the image on a server that supports hotlinking and link to that: background-image: url('http://some.server/sunset.jpg');

    Windows 7 vs. Vista

    Some sites use the UA string to detect which browser is being used and may block/change certain content as a result. My banking site doesn't like me using Firefox 3.5b!

    How to create an editable PDF?

    I've used OpenOffice to create PDFs with submitable forms. You just us the form field tools and set up the submit button correctly.

    Windows 7 vs. Vista

    A User Agent Switcher simply changes the type of browser reported in HTTP requests etc. Doesn't change page rendering at all.

    Executing Bash script with php

    The problem there was that you were using a local path. You should use the complete URL, such as http://www.host.com/path/to/file.txt, or a relative path as you have done in your last post.

    Wordpress Contact Form not sending to Hotmail

    The emails aren't being treated as spam, haven't gone into "Junk"? Sounds strange if it's working with other email addresses.

    error: object expected

    Newseed's right. The line 11 refers to the 11th line of Javascript that's either embedded or in a separate file.

    CSS Validation, do not exist in 2.1

    Are you using "Rapid PHP" as validator? Try using the W3C one http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_uri+with_options

    What to use to design PDFs?

    At the college where I work I use Adobe Indesign, far better than Quark and is most likely what the "gorgeous looking PDFs" were designed in. Photoshop can save as PDF and any text created using the type tools can appear as proper text in the PDF, you need to look at the PDF save options. That said, any application that has print capabilities can output to PDF if you install a "PDF printer". There are some free ones out there.

    Preventing image theft

    Just as a note. In Firefox, all you have to do is open the "Page Info" box, click on the "Media" tab, select the image and then "Save As...". So even the transparent GIF trick isn't going to deter many. You could make your image really small, that way prints will look bad and won't be of much use on screen.
