  1. Please post the PHP code of that page so that we can diagnose the problem.
  2. 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.
  3. 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');
  4. 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!
  5. Between words that need it use e.g. text text
  6. I've used OpenOffice to create PDFs with submitable forms. You just us the form field tools and set up the submit button correctly.
  7. A User Agent Switcher simply changes the type of browser reported in HTTP requests etc. Doesn't change page rendering at all.
  8. You have my vote. Anyone else? Come on, KS has only 5% ATM!
  9. 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.
  10. The emails aren't being treated as spam, haven't gone into "Junk"? Sounds strange if it's working with other email addresses.
  11. Newseed's right. The line 11 refers to the 11th line of Javascript that's either embedded or in a separate file.
  12. Are you using "Rapid PHP" as validator? Try using the W3C one http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_uri+with_options
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Too carry you variables through, you could have hidden fields containing the same data, e.g: echo "";
  16. I've looked at Acrobat at work today. What you describe only works if the pages themselves are of different sizes (i.e. inside pages created as spreads in the first place). Then you need to select: File>Properties - "Initial View" tab Magnification: Fit width (or fit visible) Page layout: Single Page Continuous
  17. I use Acrobat Pro at work, so I don't have it in front of me now, but I think if you select File>Properties, one of the tabs contains the initial view settings of the current PDF where you can set the zoom, and the view mode etc.
  18. Both the if and the else statements contain div1.style.display = 'block'. The second one should be div1.style.display = 'none'.
  19. What application are you using to create the PDF? Or, do you have Acrobat Pro?
  20. You could compile your playlist in a music player like Winamp and save the playlist as M3U. Then open the playlist and change the file paths to URLs by hand. Alternatively, you could use XSPF Web Music Player. It uses an XML playlist format that is easier to understand than M3U, plus there's a great deal of documentation on it on the net.
  21. Sad to say, but you can't change the colours of form elements in some browsers. I've encountered this problem in Opera.
  22. Yep, use and it will show in Firefox, IE and most of the rest! The icon must be in Windows icon format for it to show in IE.
  23. Try using the media="print" attribute of the link element:
  24. As long as you keep the same domain name, then search engines won't even know that the host has changed. Page rank is a very dynamic thing and can depend on how many links there are to your site.
